Palestine is still the issue

Palestinian activists are talking of a 'new Naqba', a new catastrophe. The murderous attacks on the Right to Return marches are one part of a much wider assault. Most seriously, with the full backing of Donald Trump, a new Netanyahu government looks set to start annexing parts of the West Bank.

Such a move would be an open declaration by Israel and its Western backers that the recognition of Palestine is off the table.

In these circumstances, it is vital the whole of the movement stands with the Palestinians and that we defy the attempts that have been made over the last year to silence us.

Stop the War is co-organising meetings up and down the country in solidarity with the Palestinians.
The London <> rally<> Why Palestine is Still the Issue<> takes place on May 2.
Speakers include: Lowkey, Tariq Ali, Karma Nabulsi, Kevin Courtney, Ben Jamal and Lindsey German.

This cycle of meetings is calling for a massive mobilisation for the national demonstration for Palestine on May 11. Make sure you are there.

War in Libya escalates


In 2011 Stop the War campaigned against the bombing of Libya warning that what was being presented as humanitarian intervention would lead to catastrophe. Yet again StW and its supporters have been proved right: the bombing of Libya was neither humanitarian nor liberating.

Don't deport Assange to the US

The treatment of Julian Assange by the British authorities has been a scandal. Assange and Wikileaks have helped expose the hypocrisy and the horror of the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq in particular. That is why the establishment is out to silence him. Stop the War opposes his extradition to the US, it is absolutely clear that were he to be sent to the US he wouldn't stand a chance of a fair hearing.
