The Stop the War Coalition is calling a protest against the threat of war with Iran. It will take place at Downing Street tomorrow (4 Jan) between 2 and 3 pm, and will demand that the British government does not join in any military action alongside Trump and the US.
Lindsey German from Stop the War said:
‘The assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani is an act of war by Donald Trump. The act was carried out in Baghdad, violating all agreements with the Iraqi government. Both Iran and Iraq will retaliate. Trump has been heading for war since tearing up the nuclear deal with Iran and if he succeeds will create a bigger war than we have seen in the Middle East. It will draw in major players across the region including Israel, Saudi Arabia and possibly Russia.
This is the bloody result of two decades of war started by the US after 9/11. Those of us who said war in Iraq would lead to endless conflict and misery were absolutely right to do so. And those who justified those wars are now looking on while the situation escalates.’
