Blockade Brown’s Afghanistan conference

A Stop the War Coalition meeting on Tuesday evening resolved to attempt to blockade Gordon Brown’s Afghanistan conference and prevent it from going ahead.

More than 50 activists attended the London activists meeting to discuss demonstrations and blockades outside the conference on Afghanistan and Yemen, and a day of action outside the Chilcot inquiry when Tony Blair gives evidence on the invasion of Iraq.

The conference is due to take place on 28 January at Lancaster House in central London. It will see world leaders gather to back the surge and the spread of the war. Stop the War is calling on activists across the country to mobilise large numbers for the day. The call particularly goes out to students as it is on a weekday.

Tony Blair is due to appear in front of the Iraq Inquiry in the fortnight after 25 January. A day of street theatre, speeches and protest will take place outside the inquiry on the day. The meeting resolved to start organising and building for the day now, preparing those involved to respond quickly when the precise date is announced.

Britain is growing so risk-averse that the public may no longer tolerate deployment of the military, the Armed Forces Minister said yesterday: here.

The Obama administration is now intervening into the seething social and political cauldron of Yemen in pursuit of Washington’s economic and strategic ambitions. In doing so, it will create another catastrophe for the Yemeni people and a quagmire for the American military: here.

  1. USA are fighting against democracy, not against Al-Qaeda

    INTERVIEW OF MOHAMED HASSAN
    BY GREGOIRE LALIEU & MICHEL COLLON

    A pair of trousers on fire in an plane close to Detroit and missiles rain down on Yemen. The butterfly effect? For Mohammed Hassan, the terrorist threat is only an excuse. In this latest chapter in our series “Understanding the Muslim world”, our specialist explains what is really at stake in Yemen : i.e. undermining democracy in the Gulf in order to keep control over its oil.

    Mohamed Hassan. First of all we must note this phenomenon which is repeating itself: every time that a regime backed by Washington is threatened, then terrorists appear on the scene…. Read the interview at

  2. Former leader urges redivision

    Yemen: Thousands of protesters demanding that the country be divided again poured into the streets after the last south Yemeni president, Ali Salem al-Baid, called for the end to the united republic that was established in 1990.

    “Send a message to our Arab brothers underlining your rejection of north Yemen’s occupation, and your commitment to self-determination,” Mr Baid urged.
