A good source for global peacework from Britain: Stop the war coalation! Those who stand for peace and human rights in the different parts or the world should cooperate, to be able to come through! The elites divide and rule! We need unification, independent, which religion, skincolor, nationality we have!

Perhaps it is too easy to dance on her grave. Her funeral was a propaganda stunt, fit for a dictator: an absurd show of militarism, as if a coup had taken place.

The scale of torture, kidnapping and detention without trial unleashed by the US government after 9/11 is indisputable, backed and emulated at every stage by its closest allies.

Flying, lethal robots piloted thousands of miles away at US Air Force bases in Nevada and New Mexico, is how America will continue its war in Afghanistan after 2014.

On April 25, George W. Bush will bask in the fawning media sunlight of his presidential library and museum, and President Obama will be at the dedication to add his approval.

Drones make it much easier for political leaders to opt to use lethal military force as a ‘quick fix’ rather than engage in the difficult long-term task of trying to solve root causes.

Were Shaker Aamer to return, he would almost certainly become a key witness in the police investigation into allegations of British complicity in torture in the post 9/11 era.

    Aims and Constitution

07 November 2009
The Stop the War Coalition was formed on September 21st, 2001 at a public meeting of over 2,000 people in London. The platform statement above was ratified at public meetings held in October 2001 in London.

1. The aim of the Coalition should be very simple: to stop the war currently declared by the United States and its allies against ‘terrorism’. We condemn the attacks on New York and we feel the greatest compassion for those who lost their life on 11th September 2001. But any war will simply add to the numbers of innocent dead, cause untold suffering, political and economic instability on a global scale, increase racism and result in attacks on civil liberties. The aims of the campaign would be best expressed in the name Stop the War Coalition.

2. Supporters of the Coalition, whether organisations or individuals, will of course be free to develop their own analyses and organise their own actions. But there will be many important occasions when united initiatives around broad stop the war slogans can mobilise the greatest numbers.

3. The Coalition shall elect a steering committee which reflects the breadth of those involved to carry forward the aims and objectives. Local groups should have regular, open and inclusive meetings.

4. We call on all peace activists and organisations, trade unionists, campaigners and labour movement organisations to join with us in building a mass movement that can stop the drive to war.

5. We are committed to opposing any racist backlash generated by this war. We will fight to stop the erosion of civil rights.
