MEMBERS of Huddersfield Stop The War are stepping up their protests against the conflict in Iraq.
About 30 people took part in a vigil at the Market Place to read out the names of those killed in the conflict - joining others holding similar vigils across the world.
June Jones, spokes- woman for Huddersfield Stop The War, said a march and vigil was also planned for noon on Saturday, December 11, when protesters will march from Nelson Mandela Corner, behind Huddersfield Library, to the Market Place.
And another demonstration would be held at 5pm on the day US forces begin an expected aerial bombardment of the Iraqi city of Fallujah in the run-up to the Iraqi elections.
Ms Jones said: "Many people expect it to take place at any time now the US presidential election is over. We intend to demonstrate on the day the bombs are dropped."
