Iain Dalton, spoke at the protest on behalf of the Socialist Party, bringing solidarity with the resistance against the coup, and raising the need for the struggle against the military leaders to be based on grassroots organisations if wishes and the poor like the Neighbourhood Resistance Committees which should be rebuilt.
