Hackney Stop the War Public Meeting CRISIS IN THE 'WAR ON TERROR': home and abroad

1) Please come to our next public meeting (which is also our AGM).

The new year brings a worsening of the situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan as a result of increased military intervention in that area. Iran is under renewed threat and the Yemen is now under attack. Most people want the troops brought home. The government is desperately attempting to regain the initiative by banging on about the threat of terrorism.

That means that our next public meeting will be a chance to discuss the situation and debate what we do.

Speaker: Andrew Murray, chair of Stop the War Coalition

2) Please see attachment. This is a petition asking for donations to help Ibrahim Avcil's legal defence. The charge against Ibrahim relates to our protests against the Army Show Room in Dalston.

Ibrahim Avcil, chair of Refugee Workers Cultural Association, faces serious charges following an incident involving security guards in Kingsland Shopping Centre last June. His arrest by the police is an attempt to intimidate Stop the War protests against the Army Showroom in Dalston.

Please help defend Ibrahim by donating to his legal costs.
