1) Parliamentary meeting: No new intervention in Syria

Stop the War is supporting a parliamentary briefing to discuss the Syrian crisis and build opposition within Parliament to the further militarization of the conflict that Cameron and his allies propose. The meeting is open to the public - so please come along.

Wednesday 3rd July, 7pm
Boothroyd Room, Portcullis House
London SW1A 2LW

Speakers include Peter Hain MP
Chair: Jeremy Corbyn MP

The US, Britain and France are threatening to send arms to the opposition in Syria and are also talking about imposing a no fly zone over much of the country. This escalation of their intervention, which so far has been covert, is the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria by the regime. This allegation comes from CIA intelligence, an unreliable source given its record on the Iraq war.

There is one simple fact which stands out in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya: war to avoid humanitarian disaster has always created greater humanitarian disaster. We are told that the aim is to save lives, but in all these cases the result was a much higher death toll.

Please lobby your MP to encourage them to attend the briefing and to oppose British military intervention in Syria. You can contact your MP directly with our online lobbying tool.


2) National Conference 2013

Stop the War Coalition's 2013 National Conference will be held on 14 September 2013 at The Old Cinema, University of Westminster, London. National Conference is the major democratic forum within the Coalition and sets the policy and objectives for the upcoming 18 months. Conference will begin with registration at 9.30am and runs until 5pm.

Conference is open to national members and delegates from affiliated local anti-war groups, trade unions and political campaigns and parties. Affiliated bodies can submit motions for consideration by delegates. This is the main opportunity to help shape the anti-war movement in Britain over the coming months and we strongly encourage everyone who can to attend.

Please reserve the date in your diary. Details of registration cost, eligibility for delegates and deadlines for motions will be posted on the Stop the War website and sent by email soon.
