Sheffield Stop the War Coalition have called a public meeting on Friday 25th May, 7.30pm at Workstation (next to Showroom) Paternoster Row S1 (£2.00 admission).
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.
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 vital that the anti-war movement mobilise the widest possible active opposition to the warmongering of our political leaders.
Don’t Attack Iran: we can’t afford another war.
The growing threats against Iran in recent weeks have been backed up with increased sanctions. As we know from Iraq, these are a prelude to war, not an alternative to it. There are signs of covert intervention already in Iran, as there are in Syria. Stop the War opposes all military intervention from the west in the region, for which there is absolutely no justification.
