The Chilcot Report

Publication date: 6th July 2016

London – In response to the release of the Chilcot report, John Sauven, Executive Director of Greenpeace UK, said :

“This report confirms what we already knew – that the Blair government led Britain into a disastrous war on a drumbeat of exaggerated threats, guesswork dressed as intelligence, and windy rhetoric. The formidable challenges humanity is facing today require international cooperation more than ever before. We cannot have a healthy environment without peace, and we cannot have peace without a healthy environment. This is why Greenpeace will keep campaigning for both. As Albert Camus said, peace is the only battle worth waging, and that has never been more true than in the case of invading Iraq.”
