A Message From The Stop The War Coalition


If anyone in London is at a loose end tomorrow the Stop The War Coalition has an idea...

Thursday 10 May Downing Street
3.30 to 5.00 pm: Symbolic protest when Tony Blair resigns

(Please note time change)

Tony Blair is resigning early and in disgrace due to his support for the Bush wars. He will announce his resignation on Thursday 10 May. We are asking for as many people as possible to come to Downing Street from 3.30 to 5.00 pm for a symbolic protest in memory of the thousands who have died as a result of his war policies. Please bring old shoes to lay at Downing Street. Local Stop the War groups are asked to bring their banners.

am? I'm willing to do a lot

am? I'm willing to do a lot to assist Tony out of the door, but not get up at 3am!

Damn, that'll teach me to

Damn, that'll teach me to shamelessly cut and paste. I'll correct that straight away. The thought of anti-war protesters out at 3am is amusing though.

It would have been a rude

It would have been a rude awaking, banging on your door at 5am shouting you have 15mins to get the hell out of here...

Oh, I don't know - bag over

Oh, I don't know - bag over the head, earmuffs, orange jumpsuit, manacles, in the back of the van and off to Northolt for a plane to Cairo Police HQ via Poland.  Sounds good.

Stop the War appear to have

Stop the War appear to have something of a genius for 'symbolic actions' and intensely boring rallies and speakers. What a shame that  they can't find  an equal enthusiasm for civil disobedience and direct action. Still, it's all part of a broader historical pattern: a good percentage of nu-labour apparatchiks and Bush neo-cons are ex-Trots, and I suppose it won't be too long before a number of the current crop of adolescent paper-sellers mutate into tomorrows technocrats, commentators and war-mongers.

Somethings never change. In the meantime comrades, let us march in circles, build The Party, sell papers and vote Labour....

Nice.  I wonder if the

Nice.  I wonder if the local hospital will lend out a few dead bodies from the morgue to be propped up on his front door and 10 pints of blood to be thrown on blair when he comes out. 

Then he'll know a little bit of what the iraqis are seeing every day because of his lies.

Stop the war???Bliar should

Stop the war???Bliar should be sent to trial for helping to start the chaos over in Iraq.

this video for instance.Blair should be forced to watch this before he is tried.Brutal stuff.


BAGHDAD -- Gunmen shot and killed 23 members of an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq on Sunday after stopping their bus and separating out followers of other faiths while car bombings in the capital killed at least another 20 people.


Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, in Egypt to drum up support among Arab leaders for his Shiite-led government, told Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak that Iraq was not embroiled in a civil or sectarian war. Key Arab leaders pressured him to step up reconciliation efforts to include Sunni insurgents.

In the northern Iraq attack, armed men stopped the bus as it was carrying workers from a textile factory in Mosul to their hometown of Bashika, which has a mixed population of Christians and Yazidis -- a primarily Kurdish sect that worships an angel figure considered to be the devil by some Muslims and Christians.
