Easons bookstore is being urged to scrap plans for a book-signing by former British prime minister Tony Blair.

Easons bookstore is being urged to scrap plans for a book-signing by former British prime minister Tony Blair.

The Galway Alliance Against War is branding Mr Blair as "repulsive" and claims he is "responsible for the deaths of 1.3 million Iraqis", because "he lied in order to launch the war there".

A demonstration is being held at Easons in Galway in an effort to prevent a planned book-signing at their main branch in Dublin next month from going ahead.

GAAW spokesperson Niall Farrell said: "It would be outrageous and would warrant a drastic response."
