Day of protest against British bombing of Syria: Saturday 28 November

Protests will take place around the country against the imminent threat of bombing of Syria by British forces this Saturday. This is in response to the proposed vote in Parliament by David Cameron which is likely to take place within the next week. The vote is more likely following the terrible events in Paris. Yet this bombing will not stop terror attacks.

Stop the War is opposed to this military response. There is already bombing in Syria, conducted by the US and French forces. Its net effect has not been to weaken ISIS. The cumulative effect of 14 years of western bombing in the region has been to increase the scale and spread of jihadi terrorism.

When Russian bombing of Syria began, nearly two months ago, David Cameron and Barack Obama warned that it would be counter productive, increase the threat of terrorism and create instability in the region.

Exactly the same applies to UK and any other bombing.

The London protest will be at Downing Street on Saturday 28 November between 12 and 2pm
