“Cut war, not welfare”

"Cut war, not welfare” is a protest saying that has been printed on many images. The slogan has been used at many protest marches.

“Cut war, not welfare” was first used on a sign at a protest of the Afghanistan war in London on November 20, 2010. “As protesters behind her held signs reading, ‘Cut war not welfare,’ Sylvester told CNN the war costs too much and is no longer justified” was posted on CNN in the story “Protesters in London march against Afghan war” on November 20, 2010. “‘Cut war, not welfare’ sign at Trafalgar Square ant-war protest #afghanistan http://plixi.com/p/58072141” was posted on Twitter by Julie Mollins on November 20, 2010.


Wikipedia: Protests against the war in Afghanistan
The proposed invasion of Afghanistan prompted protests with mass demonstrations in the days leading up to the official launch of the war on October 7, 2001. The continuation of the war in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2021 lead to further protest and opposition to hostilities.

On Saturday November 20, 2010, protesters led by military families held a 10,000-strong demonstration march through London against the war in Afghanistan.

Cut war not welfare’: Thousands line streets in protest over soaring cost of living
12 February 2022, 16:55 | Updated: 12 February 2022, 16:58
By Megan Hinton
Protesters have lined streets across the UK to highlight the impact of the cost of living crisis on workers and their families.

The People’s Assembly co-ordinated the demonstrations, supported by trade unions, in towns and cities around the UK including London, Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol, Nottingham, Glasgow and Brighton.

Placards held aloft in Parliament Square in central London read “tax the rich” and “cut war not welfare” whilst others carried other messages objecting to a rise in energy prices.
