Crowther in Moscow

Crowther in Moscow

Probably the most distinguished utterance of the British Peace Committee is that of its chairman, J. G. Crowther who, on October 18, 1950, in a broadcast speech in Moscow (where he went as guest of the Russian Peace Committee) said:—

"Today we see how the peoples of Malaya, Vietnam and Korea are fighting for peace. Tomorrow we shall witness a moving event. The British people will start fighting for their own independence against the domination of the United States bankers and militarists. Today we hear the call "Malaya for the Malayans," "Korea for the Koreans," and tomorrow we shall hear the call "Britain for the British."
