On Monday 5th December, Stop the War Coalition organised a public meeting "Don't Attack Iran" in London's Conway Hall.

The invitation explained:

With increasing hysteria over Iranís nuclear programme, the US and the UK, along with Israel once again talk openly about launching military strikes against Iran. The official policy of the West so far has been increasingly hostile and indiscriminate sanctions. Yet several assassinations of Iranian scientists and acts of sabotage inside Iran in the past few months as well as the recent cut in diplomatic relations between Iran and the UK, may well mean that we are heading towards a catastrophic confrontation, with unimaginable consequences not just for the Middle East but for the entire world. Now is the time to step up the campaign against any attacks and to call for an end to sanctions.

Come and share your thoughts and hear the views of experts on this topic.

"I went to the Palestinian village, and I saw there were houses, they were being pulled down because there werenít any permits for the Palestinian homes. And through the rubble and through all the dust I could see [the illegal israeli settlement of] Har Homa shinning in the distance with its permission for another 1000 units."
