..DISARMAMENT & SECURITY..
A natioal survey by Stop the War
All the anti-war movement activity has played an important part in ensuring the vast majority of the British people oppose the attack despite near blanket support from the mainstream. This is a huge achievement. Now we need to build on it.
The world is becoming more dangerous by the day. This is why it’s so important that we stay in the streets and that we make sure we have permanent anti-war organisations in every town, city and university.

On Friday, Stop the War Coalition will be handing in a letter signed by MP’s, trade unionists, celebrities and academics to No.10 to urge Theresa May to refrain from joining Donald Trump in escalating the war in Syria. Military interventions from external powers have failed to bring an end to the war. The only solution in Syria is a ceasefire on all sides and a political settlement. Join us at 17:00 on Whitehall to demand an end to the bombing of Syria.

Our stall will be collecting signatories for a petition stating:- “We oppose calls for further escalation of military intervention in Syria. Any western attack would lead to more death and destruction and would deepen the misery of the Syrian people. It would prolong the cycle of violence and risk direct confrontation between the great powers. The only solution in Syria is an end to all foreign intervention, a ceasefire on all sides and a political settlement.”
