London peace camp to protest against US targeting of Iran

London, March 10, IRNA - Military Families against the War (MFAW) is setting up a peace camp in London Trafalgar Square next week to protest against the US extending its threats to other countries and against new UK anti-terror legislation.

"The 'war on terror' continues with the sights now set on Syria and Iran together with an unprecedented attack on civil liberties," MFAW said in announcing the three-day peace camp starting next Wednesday.

The camp is being sponsored by several anti-war politicians and networks of peace groups. It is also being backed by the Muslim Association of Britain.

MFAW was set up last year by families of British soldiers opposed to the Iraq war and include relatives of some of the servicemen killed in action.

The peace camp is being held ahead of the global day of action against the occupation of Iraq on March 19, the second anniversary of the US-UK invasion.

The STWC, which organized the biggest-ever anti-war demonstration in London two years ago, is calling for the US to be stopped in its relentless war drive.

Its Neath branch in Wales is holding a meeting next Tuesday to add its local voice to the international opposition to US-led military threats against Iran.

Several peace groups are also calling on the leaders of Britain's three main political parties to make a pledge before the forthcoming UK general election not to join in any more US attacks.
