1) PUBLIC MEETING: AFTER BIN LADEN – WAR WITHOUT END

PUBLIC MEETING: WEDNESDAY 11 MAY 7PM

AFTER BIN LADEN – WAR WITHOUT END

INDIAN YMCA 41 FITZROY SQUARE W1T 6AQ (TUBE WARREN STREET)

SPEAKERS INCLUDE: TARIQ ALI, GEORGE GALLOWAY, KATE HUDSON (CND),

LINDSEY GERMAN (STOP THE WAR)

The assasination attempt on Gaddafi and the execution of Bin

Laden show how the US feels it can act with impunity anywhere in

the world in violation of international law.

Far from seeing the death of Bin Laden as a reason for scaling

down the “war on terror” — under which two Muslim countries are

occupied and a third is being bombarded — Barack Obama, Hilary

Clinton and other western leaders have re-affirmed their

commitment to a policy of perpetual war.

The war in Afghanistan will be intensified in the coming months,

with 2011 already the most deadly since the invasion nearly ten

years ago. The occupation of Iraq continues to deteriorate, with

April being the most violent month since 2009. The bombing of

Libya, supposedly to “protect” civilians, has only served to

escalate the civil war, with dire consequences for the Libyan

people.

Stop the War’s public meeting on Wednesday 11 May — with

speakers including Tariq Ali, George Galloway, Kate Hudson and

Lindsey German — will discuss the implications of Bin Laden’s

death and its impact on the “war on terror”.

*******************************

2) EMERGENCY LIBYA PROTEST

MONDAY 16 MAY: STOP THE BOMBING

PROTEST WHEN PARLIAMENT DEBATES LIBYA

5PM DOWNING STREET LONDON

Parliament will be debating its Libya policy on Monday 16 May.

This is an important opportunity for those who oppose the

intervention to protest. Stop the War has called a protest for

5pm at Downing Street, London. If you live in London please

attend if you can and spread the word as widely as possible.
