No to Nato protests: transport and accommodation

Map of NewportIn less than 3 weeks time the leaders of the key Western powers will gather in South Wales for the NATO summit. We need the biggest possible protests to force them to break from their aggressive foreign policy.

The momentum for organised resistance to this year's NATO summit in Newport has grown in response to recent events.

The NATO powers give full backing to Israel, the watchdog of imperialism in the Middle East. Meanwhile, in Ukraine NATO has been stoking the flames of civil war, holding military exercises on Ukrainian soil at time fraught with international tensions - as made clear by the horrific shooting down of flight MH-17. And in Iraq, the increasing sectarian violence over the last few weeks has shown how western intervention has failed by every measure.

Large public meetings have been held by local Stop the War groups and more are being planned, and coaches from around the UK are being organised to mobilise as many people as possible for the mass demonstration in Newport on the 30th of August.

NATOA whole week of protest is planned during the week of the summit.

Everything you need to know to prepare for these vital protests is available on the Stop the War web site.

You can also help us build the protest by ordering our No to Nato protest postcards, which contain details of the week of action. Call 020 7561 4830 or email office@stopwar.org.uk
