Rescind or apologise for giving an award to Tony Blair.
This petition had 2,055 supporters
Tony Blair was jointly responsible for starting an illegal war. Had he been a "Third World Despot" he would almost certainly have been charged with war crimes.
The invasion of Iraq in 2003 unleashed a decade of devastating destruction on families in the region. It also added fire to destruction beyond the region. Save The Children giving Blair an award is a grotesque insult to those children killed, maimed and orphaned by the devastation his action precipitated. Action which continues to defend despite all the evidence of the destruction for which it was responsible and the lies perpetrated to persuade the British Parliament to support it.
Giving the award is an insult to those millions across the world who give time and money to Save the Children's commitment to "save children's lives . . . fight for their rights . . . help them fulfil their potential."
