Stop the War


No excuses. This must be the largest ever UK demonstration for Gaza.
 From every corner of the country, from every city and and town, all roads must lead to London 9 August

Get organised. Transport must be organised now where you live, to bring everyone to London who is outraged by Israel's barbaric onslaught. See the Stop the War website for details, as we get them.

Spread the word. Everyone must now mobilise wherever they are in Britain, spread the word as widely as they can -- among family, friends, in their workplaces, colleges, community. 

No excuses. In the past three weeks, London held two of the biggest demonstrations for Gaza in the world, twice mobilising over 50,000 protesters. But on Saturday 9 Augustwe need to fill the streets of London with a huge outcry at the carnage being perpetrated by Israel, with the support of David Cameron and his government.

Reasons why. 25 days of the world's fifth most powerful military force bombarding an area no bigger than the Isle of Wight has killed 1,600 Palestinians and injured 9000 more. No one and nothing is safe from Israel's war crimes: 80% of the dead are civilians, over 300 of them children -- women, the disabled, the elderly, the infirm, all slaughtered by Israel's indiscriminate bombing with missiles and shells.

More reasons why. Hospitals, schools, power stations, sewage works -- Gaza's infrastructure is being turned to rubble. Israel has declared more than half of Gaza a no-go area, effectively announcing it will make Gaza a free-fire zone, when it knows full well there is nowhere for its people to move that is safe, with the borders sealed by Israel and Egypt's inhumane siege.

Gaza needs you. On Saturday 9 August, there will be demonstrations in cities and towns across the world.We will be there to say Israel's crimes against humanity must stop. And we will be there in our solidarity with the people of Gaza, who need to know they are not alone.

Organise, mobilise, publicise. But above all, be there.
