Urgent - no attack on Syria

Britain France and the US are poised to attack Syria. Even ex-generals are warning that such an attack can have incalculable consequences. It risks terrible casualties, will intensify the desperate civil war and threatens to draw other regional powers in to the conflict.

As Stop the War's statement on Syria points out 'It seems that the Western governments have already made up their minds about this attack before it has even been reported on by UN weapons inspectors.' This underlines the fact that the intervention, far from being humanitarian, is part of a wider project of regime change.

While our politicians appear to have learnt nothing from the disasters of Afghanistan, Iraq most people in Britain oppose any attack. Only 9% support British troops getting involved and only 25% back missile strike.
Protests are taking place across the country today and tomorrow - please check here for details and phone us if you want to organise something in your area.

Make Saturday massive

Saturday's national demonstration is crucial. We need to be a real _expression_ of mass public opinion. Please do everything possible to attend and promote as widely as you can.

The demonstration is now assembling at Temple Tube at midday on Saturday and marching via parliament and Downing Street to Trafalgar Square for a rally. Transport has already been organised from various towns and cities, please contact the office for more information.

Demonstrate - No attack on Syria, this Saturday 31 August. 12 midday,  Temple tube, Victoria Embankment.

Donate now for emergency campaign.

Organising a national campaign costs a large amount of money.
We have to hire PAs, print thousands of leaflets and placards and fund travel around the country. Already people have been very generous but we urgently need to raise a minimum of £5,000 to have maximum impact

We are also asking all our supporters to join the Stop the War Coalition. Becoming a member allows you to participate fully in the Coalition and it increases our regular income, allowing us to employ more staff and maintain a well resourced office.

Take action:

We need the maximum level of protests to stop them plunging us in to yet another catastrophic war.
