Unconditional ceasefire now stop Israel's attacks on Lebanon & Gaza end Blair's support for Bush's war

  • call emergency protests this Friday 28 July
  • collect signatures for the Tony Blair letter
  • all London groups to join the Downing Street protest

The war crimes and the barbarism continue. 400 killed. Up to one million Lebanese driven from their homes. And still Condoleeza Rice and Tony Blair say keep on bombing.

Emergency action is needed across the country. All local groups should organise protests this Friday evening.

We also want as many people as possible to sign the Stop the War open letter to Tony Blair, which we will be handing in to Downing Street on Friday. The letter is printed on the Stop the War website. A petition will be available on www.stopwar.org.uk website.
