Thousands of people to join UK protests against Syria airstrikes

Thousands of people are expected to make crowd outside of Downing Street and in cities across the UK on Saturday to protest against government plans to launch a bombing campaign in Syria.

Protests, public meetings and actions are planned in 18 towns and cities across the country, including a large gathering outside Downing Street on Saturday.

The event page says: “The UK has been bombing countries for a decade and a half, at the cost of millions of lives. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results meets Albert Einstein’s definition of madness.

“We are calling on all our groups to organise protests in their towns and cities on the same day. We need to resist this brutalising and dehumanising spiral of violence.”
Nearly 6,000 people have so far indicated on Facebook that they will attend the London protest organised by the Stop the War coalition.
