Peace campaigners gathered on a cold evening last Friday outside
Downing Street to protest against western intervention and arming of
the opposition in Syria, demand the withdrawal of western troops from
Mali, and to call for an end to the seemingly endless spread of war
around the globe. The protest was organised by the Stop the War
Coalition, which said: “The war on terror is in danger of spreading once again, with continuing threats of increased intervention in Syria, the ongoing war in Mali and a possible attack on Iran”. The
coalition has warned of the growing danger of “a disastrous regional war” in the Middle East.
