Join the global protests – demonstrate 15 March

Troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan

Don’t attack Iran

End the siege of Gaza

SATURDAY 15 MARCH: Assemble 12 noon, Trafalgar Square, London

Five years after the invasion of Iraq the world has become much more dangerous and volatile. Latest estimates suggest as many as one million have died violent deaths as a result of the occupation of Iraq. The country's infrastructure and civil society are in shreds. Brown has promised British withdrawals but there are still 5,000 British soldiers in Iraq.

Despite talk of a change of attitude to the Bush's wars, Brown is Bush's key partner in NATO's escalation in Afghanistan, and that hidden war is fast becoming a disaster mirroring that in Iraq. Meanwhile the political chaos in Pakistan is partly a product of the War on Terror and risks further military interventions. The Stop the War Coalition has joined with CND in calling a demonstration to mark the fifth anniversary of the invasion in London on Saturday March 15.

The demonstration will coincide with World Against War marches around the world agreed at the International Peace Conference in London on December 1st. It will be calling for all foreign troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and demanding there is no attack on Iran. Stop the War is asking all groups to start mobilising for this demonstration now. More details and a leaflet will be available shortly.

Demo details

The demo will assemble for a rally in Trafalgar Square, march down Whitehall, cross the river and return for final speeches in Parliament Square, so surrounding parliament.

Drop off point for coaches: Victoria Embankement

Collection point: Millbank South Lambeth Bridge
