Welcome to Stoppoliticalterror campaign website.

As of 13th September 2004, we have stopped calling ourselves stoppoliceterror for those of you who may have expected to find this name.  The reason behind our name change is to clarify that our struggle is not against the average policeman and policewomen who conduct themselves in a very professional and caring manner.  Our struggle is against the rogue police elements who have and
continue to take the law onto themselves and their political whipmasters.

Stop Political Terror is a campaign that was launched on 10 December 2003 by the friends and families of the victims of British Anti-Terrorist Police human rights abuse. It was initiated after the continuing arrests and harrassment by Britain's Anti-Terrorist Police and domestic Intelligence Service, MI5, reached an unacceptable level. We have come together to say that enough is enough and that Britain's Muslims, as a community, will refuse to cooperate with the law enforcement authorities if this abuse continues.

Our Aims

1. To raise awareness in both the Muslim and non-Muslim communities about the deteriorating situation in the UK and the scale of arrests, raids and abuse meted out by Anti-Terrorist Police

2. To lobby in order to bring an end to the unjust parts of the Terrorism Act 2000 and the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Bill 2001

3. To inform residents of the UK what their legal rights are with regards to Anti-Terrorist Police and the Security Service, MI5

4. To create a pressure group that will bring an end to Anti-Terrorist Police terror and abuse

How Will We Achieve These Aims?

A. By the use of a web-site that will raise awareness and provide information on campaigns and events in addition to documenting Police terror case studies

B. By the use of seminar events in different cities; petitions, demonstrations, leaflets and letters

C. By creating a 'Rapid Reaction Force' who will, at short notice, immediately respond to any action of terror carried out by Anti-Terrorist Police, using legal means such as demonstrations, letters and phone calls

D. By working with other Muslim or non-Muslim organisations who agree with our aims, in order to further the campaign

E. By using the media to the best of our ability
