> General Sir Richard Dannatt, outgoing head of the British

> Government and the generals remain committed to this pointless

> Stop the War, in conjunction with the Campaign for Nuclear
> Disarmament and the British Muslim Initiative, has called a
> demonstration in central London on Saturday 24 October to mark
> the eighth anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan.
> We are asking all our supporters to start publicising the
> demonstration as widely as possible. Initial publicity is
> available to download here:
> Stop the War's local groups are preparing protests to take
> place the weekend after the 200th British soldier is killed in
> Afghanistan. At the current rate of fatalities, with 191
> having died so far, it is likely this figure will be reached
> in the near future. It will be yet another testament to
> tragically wasted lives of soldiers -- some as young as
> eighteen -- sent to kill and be killed in a futile war.
> Local Stop the Groups campaigning to bring the troops home
> from Afghanistan are experiencing unprecedented levels of
> support, not least in the thousands who have signed our
> petition to Gordon Brown in recent weeks.
