An eventful year for StWC
The background to our annual conference on 10 June is a very eventful past year for Stop the War Coalition. We have held two national demonstrations, on 24 September 2005 and 18 March 2006. Our protests turned Condeleeza Rice's visit to Liverpool and Blackburn in March/April into a public relations disaster, which captured the headlines in the media worldwide.
Our International Peace Conference in December 2005 was hugely successful, attracting over 1500 delegates, including delegates from Iraq.
Our continuing work with Military Families Against the War has helped maintain the campaign for justice being sought by a tragically increasing number of families who have lost loved ones in an illegal war. On we organised over 150 vigils in towns nationwide following the 100th soldier to die in the Iraq war. A new development has seen a growing number of ex-service people and families of serving soldiers join the anti-war movement.
This year we face the possibility of an attack on Iran, making it important for the anti-war movement not only to continue mobilising for an end to the occupation in Iraq but to build opposition to any future war plans.
