We stopped Cameron, but Obama still plans war: demonstrate tomorrow
The defeat of Cameron's war plans last night was a historic moment.
It represented the victory of mass anti-war opinion over the interests of the UK elite that has been enthusiastically participating in US-led wars over the last decade and more.
There can be no doubt that the hundreds of demonstrations, protests, rallies and pickets of the last twelve years have been central to bringing the war makers low and making it impossible for Cameron to join in another catastrophic attack.
Congratulations to every single person who has taken action against war over those years. Protest has been successful. We have made a difference.
Obama and the US remaining allies are still committed to an attack on Syria. Britain was the key US ally. Forcing Cameron out of the war is a big blow to the west's war plans. Now we must redouble our efforts to stop any attack on Syria.
The world will be watching London tomorrow, we need the biggest possible turnout to send a message around the globe that the anti war majority is staying in the streets.
Please do everything to spread the word there is a facebook event here.
To keep the pressure up we are calling a picket of the US embassy on Tuesday 3 September at 5.30pm. More details to be announced shortly.
Please donate to our appeal and join Stop the War
The last few days have proved how important it is to sustain a permanent campaign against our government's participation in foreign wars. This campaigning costs a significant amount of money. We have launched an immediate appeal for £5,000 to cover the costs of the No attack on Syria protests and we have already had a great response. Please give generously but we are asking every supporter also to join Stop the War so that we have can increase our regular income to upgrade our communications, employ more staff and improve the resources we provide to the wider anti-war movement.
