1) HOW YOU CAN HELP MAKE THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE   
The astonishing comments by two UK army majors serving in   
Afghanistan, that the war is lost and politicians are "trading	 
soldiers' lives for votes", only reflects the views of most   
people in this country (SEE: http://bit.ly/Ifl4L1).

The government is continuing to wage the war knowing that the	
overwhelming majority of people in Britain want the troops   
brought home now.

In addition, the government is pressing for increased Western	
intervention in Syria -- almost certainly as a stepping stone to   
a military attack on Iran.

David Cameron is clearly no different from Tony Blair in his   
slavish support for America's wars without end.

These war policies are making the world ever more insecure and	 
unstable. It is more necessary than ever for the anti-war   
movement to mobilise the widest possible active opposition to the   
warmongering of our political leaders.

We have much work to do, and below is an appeal for your help to   
achieve this, from Jeremy Corbyn MP, the national chair of Stop   
the War, and Lindsey German, our national convenor,

2) MESSAGE FROM JEREMY CORBYN MP AND LINDSEY GERMAN

Dear Stop the War supporter,

There is a clear danger of further wars in the Middle East   
region, not least in the intensification of the threats against   
Iran.

The NATO leaders refuse to admit that their occupation in   
Afghanistan is in terminal crisis. Recent polls show that most	 
people in Britain do not understand the purpose of the war, think   
its unwinnable, and want the troops brought home now.

It is essential that we maintain the campaign to make our   
political leaders reflect the views of the overwhelming majority   
in this country that opposes the war policies of our government.

We urgently need your help to do this.

There are many ways you can get involved, but most urgently at	 
present we need to raise our funding for future activities, such   
as our NO TO NATO protest on Saturday 19 May. We also need to	
take on more staff in our national office so we can be as   
effective as possible in our work.

We have set a target of £20,000 to reach these objectives and we   
hope you will be able to make a contribution.

If you are a supporter of Stop the War who has donated in the	
past, we urge you to consider taking out a membership, which   
costs just a few pounds a month -- please give more if you can	 
afford it. JOIN STOP THE WAR HERE: http://bit.ly/IjsLPu

For supporters or current members who want to make an extra   
financial commitment to our campaign, we have introduced a Friend   
of Stop the War membership. This gives a host of benefits for	
anyone paying a minimum of £10 per month. BECOME A FRIEND OF STOP   
THE WAR HERE: http://bit.ly/IjsOen

If you would rather help our campaign by making a donation, you   
can do this online, by phone or by post. DONATE HERE:

Once again thank you for your support. Please do not hesitate to   
contact us at the Stop the War Coalition office, email	 
office@stopwar.org.uk or call 0207 561 9311.

Yours with thanks,

Jeremy Corbyn MP, National Chair   
Lindsey German, National Convenor

3) NO TO NATO PROTEST US EMBASSY 19 MAY

Protests have been called around the world on Saturday 19 May,	 
the day that the NATO leaders are meeting in Chicago.

The London protest calling for No Attack on Iran, Troops Out of   
Afghanistan and No Intervention in the Middle East, will be at	 
the United States Embassy in London. Speakers will be announced   
soon. For details and updates, GO TO: http://bit.ly/I510MI

4) DON'T IRAQ IRAN CULTURAL EVENT 25 MAY

As part of our fund raising drive, Stop the War has a very   
special cultural event on Friday 25 May, at London's St James's,   
Piccadilly.

Performers will include actor Mark Rylance, who has been   
receiving rave reviews for his recent performances in the West	 
End and on Broadway, and Brian Eno, musician, artist and producer   
for U2 and Coldplay.

Also performing will be Tony Benn and Roy Bailey, with their show   
The Writing on the Wall, which sells out everywhere it plays,	
actors Kika Markham and Roger-Lloyd Pack, and award-winning   
novelist AL Kennedy.

For the full list of performers and how to book tickets, GO TO:

Interest in this event is already very high, so early booking is   
advisable. Please note that there is a 50% reduction for tickets   
if you have become a Friend of Stop the War (SEE:
