REMINDER - ANTIWAR ASSEMBLY SATURDAY 8 OCTOBER.


All the signs are that the Anti-war Assembly in Trafalgar Square on Saturday is going to be a memorable day. Grace McCann, will be there, the women who has come closest so far to carrying out a citizen's arrest on Tony Blair. 
      Films, visuals and audio will be an integral part of the day, and when the Assembly ends at 4pm, we will march to Downing Street, led by ex-soldiers and relatives from military families, with the demand that the government bring the troops home now.
      The need to build the political pressure to make the politicians reflect the majority view of public opinion that all the troops should be withdrawn from a futile and unjustified war, was never more apparent following the statement this week by the new US commander of the occupation in Afghanistan, US General John Allen, who said: "We're actually going to be here for a long time."

      Which is why this week, in Trafalgar Square in Britain, and on Freedom Plaza, Washington DC, in the United States, there will be major anti-war events on the tenth of anniversary of the start of the Afghanistan war.
      Please do all you can in these last few days to help publicise the Anti-war Assembly as widely as possible and encourage everyone you know to join us. Users of social networks please spread the word, share and tweet as much as you can.
