Stop the War financial appeal
Tony Benn, President of Stop the War Coalition
Dear Stop the War Supporter,
18 March 2006 marks three years since the illegal invasion of Iraq. Since then over 100,000 lives have been lost and George Bush and Tony Blair are now threatening future wars in Iran and Syria.
18/19 March 2006 have been designated international days of protest and actions are planned in dozens of countries, including the USA, UK, Iraq, India, Mali, Japan and at least 15 European countries.
The UK's national demonstration is on Saturday 18 March and peace groups all over the country are now organising to build support. All demonstrations cost money to organise. Hundreds of thousands of leaflets and tens of thousands of posters are needed to make sure that everyone hears about our demonstration. Meetings have to be organised, staging and PA are needed for the demonstration rally, expenses for the international speakers have to be paid, office administration has to be maintained, and much more.
We are making a financial appeal to all Stop the War supporters to help us fund this demonstration. All opinion polls show that the anti-war movement in Britain represents the majority view of the British people who opposed the war and want the occupation of Iraq to be ended. Please donate as generously as you can to ensure that the voice of peace continues to be heard.
