Cancel George W. Bush's State Visit to the UK sign now

We, the undersigned, believe that:

This state visit to the United Kingdom by George W. Bush - scheduled to take place from Wednesday 19th to Friday 21st November, 2003 - is an undue honour being paid to a man who was declared President of the United States in extremely questionable circumstances, and has brought disrepute to that esteemed office by his actions.

This state visit does not serve the purposes of the United Kingdom, those of our Prime Minister, or those of Her Majesty the Queen. It serves only to project the blatantly false image to voters in the United States that George W. Bush is a respected statesman with international support.

This state visit (and its coverage) will be manipulated by the Bush administration to reduce the visible presence and effectiveness of legitimate forms of protest, in much the same way that this administration has done so in their own country through the establishment of euphemistically-named Free Speech Zones. By setting such a precedent on our shores and through pressure brought to bear on our government, the policies of the Bush administration will have an unacceptable impact on the civil liberties of British citizens.

This state visit, by the Bush administrations own admission, presents an almost irresistible target to terrorists. As the visit serves no purpose apart from the promotion of George W. Bush, it presents an unjustifiable level of risk to our Prime Minister, Her Majesty the Queen, and attending officials and citizenry.

The incongruity between the aims of the Bush administration and the rights and wishes of British citizens will cause irretrievable damage to the relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States if this state visit is allowed to go ahead.

We urge officials at the Foreign Office and Buckingham Palace to take appropriate action and see that the invitation is withdrawn immediately.

    He should only be allowed in England to answer for the war crimes he has caused under his administration. Camp X-Ray is no better than a concentration camp and I do believe that were he from the developing world he would be on trail already.
