1) PROTEST WHEN PARLIAMENT DEBATES LIBYA

PROTEST: STOP THE BOMBING OF LIBYA
MONDAY 16 MAY 5PM
DOWNING STREET LONDON SW1 2AA

On Monday parliament will be debating the military intervention
in Libya. Claims that the war on Libya is humanitarian have been
exposed by missile attacks on the Gaddafi family’s residence and
by the thousands of refugees fleeing the onslaught whose plight
has been ignored by NATO.

MPs opposing the assault will be arguing that the attack on Libya
has clearly become a war for regime change and is therefore
illegal as well as disastrous for the Libyan people.

The intervention remains deeply unpopular here but it is vital
that we take the anti war argument on to the streets. If you can,
please join outside Downing Street. Jeremy Corbyn MP, ULU
President Clare Solomon, Bruce Kent, Lindsey German, Sami
Ramadani, Kate Hudson, NUS Black Students Officer Kanta Sasay,
and many more.

Kenza Drider, the courageous French Woman who has been arrested
by French police for refusing to take off her full veil in public
is travelling to London for a European conference against anti
Muslim hatred.

The conference will bring together public figures, activists,
victims and experts from across Europe who are committed to
combatting the growing threat of Islamophobia. It takes place at
the London Muslim Centre at the heart of East London’ s Muslim
community.

Joining Kenza Drider at the conference will be: Dr Sabine
Schiffer from Germany, who challenged the police courtroom
killing of Elvi Ali Okaz and faced prosecution by the police;
Marwan Muhammed the French writer and campaigner against
Islamophobia; and Hiba Aburwein from the European Forum on Muslim
Women.

Participants from Britain include Aisha Alvi, who was suspended
from school twenty years ago, after refusing to remove her veil,
but won reinstatement and is now a campaigner for legal rights
for Muslims; Lindsey German from the Stop the War Coalition;
Muhammad Habibur-Rahman, Secretary of the East London Mosque and
London Muslim Centre, which has been subjected to repeated
Islamophobic attacks from the media, politicians and racist
groups like the English Defence League. Rapper and political
activist Lowkey, Salma Yaqoob from the Repect Party, Tony Benn,
and journalists Peter Oborne and Mehdi Hasan are among the many
other speakers.
