The stall will be there before our vigil (and quietly during it)
If you're not going through to the Palestine Alliance demo in Glasgow today (Sat) Edinburgh Stop the War will have a stall for Palestine at our usual spot at th...e east end of Princes Street between 12.30 and 2pm. If you're free earlier than that you can also join the Edinburgh Action For Palestine stall at the corner of Princes Street and Castle Street which starts at 11am.
This isn't about nuclear weapons, but it is about two outstanding women who took on two world leaders making a nuclear power deal - and won!
Today (21st) Edinburgh CND and Edinburgh Stop the War arranged another petitioning session against the bombing in Syria. Women and Black were there for their vi...gil too.
The Syria bombing is one of the things we will be discussing at our public meeting on Thursday 26th. Please join us. https://www.facebook.com/events/184439698971840/
Outside Downing St, in Parliament Sq and TODAY 18 April at Edith Cavell statue Women in Black are saying: #DontBombSyria. Gals of London: come to our vigil, 6-7...pm. We need to keep on saying that war makes it worst for women, that we oppose further military interventions in Syria.

Before the vigil on Saturday:
We are urging all our supporters to do everything possible to stop a further attack on Syria by the Western powers. Join us in petitioning at the east end of ...Princes Street, 12.30pm Saturday 14th April
The Daily Mail reports that 'Britain’s Armed Forces are drawing up options for a joint strike with the US on Syrian forces' and, 'No 10 refused to rule out the Prime Minister recalling Parliament to vote on action but sources said she might be able to go ahead without approval from MPs'.
The situation in Syria is critical. Stop the War condemns the alleged chemical attack on Douma and all foreign interventions, including by Russia and Iran. If Trump and other Western powers escalate with bombs, missiles or other means it can only lengthen the roll call of the dead and prolong the cycle of violence. The Syrian people have suffered too much already to bear yet more foreign intervention.
