Convention: Stop Bombing Gaza
January 28 @ 2:00 pm GMTFree
Israel’s war on Gaza is destabilising the entire Middle East. There have been attacks in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria, and in the last week the US/UK have been bombing Yemen. The very real possibility of the war spreading further to include Iran raises the spectre of a nuclear war in the Middle East.
This is why we are holding an anti-war convention on Sunday 28 January. The Convention will be an opportunity for activists and experts to come together to discuss the increasingly dangerous situation in the Middle East and examine how the the anti-war movement can rise to these new challenges. Breakout sessions will examine how best you can build the movement to support the Palestinians and campaign against a wider Middle East war.
Speakers include: Daniel Kebede (NEU Gen Sec), writer and academic Ghada Kharmi, StWC’s John Rees, Claudia Webbe MP, Richard Boyd-Barrett (Chair of the Irish Anti-War Movement), Andrew Feinstein (Shadow World) and more.
Please note that due to the nature of this event we have decided to incorporate the StW activist meeting (scheduled for Friday 19 January) into the Convention. Friday’s activist’s meeting will therefore no longer go ahead. This way we can focus our attention, resources and organisational capacity on the wider issues facing the anti-war movement.
