info@bristolstopwar | 08.11.2010 17:22

This demonstration in London is timed to coincide with the Lisbon NATO conference at which Afghanistan will be the main talking point. For all the talk of diplomacy and troop drawdown, there are more NATO troops in the country than at any time since 2001.

Coaches from Bristol leave Anchor Road (opposite @Bristol) at 8.15am on 20th November. Tickets £15 waged, £8 unwaged.

For tickets either email or phone 07502 121077. Tickets can also be bought online at

If you aren’t able to come on 8th October but want to show your support by making a donation towards the cost of the coaches please make out a cheque to ‘Bristol Stop The War Coalition’ and post it to BSTWC, 23 Monmouth Road, Bristol, BS7 8LF.
This year has seen the highest number of casualties amongst Afghan civilians and NATO troops since the invasion, and there is widespread recognition that the war is a disaster.

The demonstration, called by Stop The War, CND & the British Muslim Initiative, assembles in Hyde Park at 12 noon and marches to Trafalgar Square for a rally, when speakers will include Tony Benn, Eric Joyce MP, Guardian journalist Seumas Milne and Lowkey (more to be announced soon).

The war in Afghanistan has entered its tenth year, making it longer than World War I and World War II combined. Both prime minister David Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband support continuing the war, at least till 2015. Thousands more Afghan civilians and Nato soldiers will be killed in a pointless and unwinnable war, when over 70 per cent of the British public want all British troops withdrawn now. Join this crucial demonstration which will give voice to the anti-war majority in the country and tell the politicians the time to go is now.
