Iraq - build for 24 February demo
HUNDREDS OF thousands of people protested in cities across the USA last Saturday, 27 January against Bush's escalation of the war in Iraq and to demand that the troops be brought home now. Anti-war activists dubbed this a "peace surge" against Bush's escalation of the war.
The largest of the demonstrations - up to half a million - was in Washington. The Washington Post said that "a raucous and colorful multitude of protesters ... danced, sang, chanted and shouted their opposition" in front of the Capitol building.
We need to build a big turnout too for the national demonstration in London on 24 February against the occupation of Iraq and the replacement of the ageing stock of Britain's Trident nuclear missiles.
Stop the War Coalition/ CND demo:
No Trident. Troops out of Iraq
Saturday 24 February, assemble 12 noon, Speakers Corner, Hyde Park.
March to Trafalgar Square, London.
