Report of Newcastle Stop the War Public Meeting Vote No To War!

The US missile attack on a Syrian government air base risks escalating the war in Syria still further.Tuesday’s horrific chemical attack was a war crime which requires urgent independent UN investigation and those responsible must be held to account.

But unilateral military action without legal authorisation or independent verification risks intensifying a multi-sided conflict that has already killed hundreds of thousands of people.
What is needed instead is to urgently reconvene the Geneva peace talks and unrelenting international pressure for a negotiated settlement of the conflict.

The terrible suffering of the Syrian people must be brought to an end as soon as possible and every intervention must be judged on what contribution it makes to that outcome. The British government should urge restraint on the Trump administration and throw its weight behind peace negotiations and a comprehensive political settlement.


Trump's inflammatory statements and behaviour towards DPRK

Anti-war campaigners from the Stop the War Coalition and CND will be having a protest delegation to protest against Trump's inflammatory statements and behaviour towards North Korea (including his threat, made on Nagasaki Day, that he will unleash "fire and fury") this Friday at 1pm at the US Embassy on Grosvenor Square. The delegation will be handing in a
statement calling for a de-escalation of the Korean crisis.

Stop the War has issued the following statement:
The standoff between the US and North Korea is frightening. The cycle of threat and counter-threat is creating an appalling situation in which warfare between nuclear states is being discussed as a serious option on both sides.In this context Donald Trump's outburst against the North Korean regime is deeply troubling. What impact can threats of 'fire and fury' ?have but to escalate tension and increase the likelihood of a catastrophic confrontation?

The urgent priority must be the opposite, to de-escalate and pursue a negotiated resolution to the crisis, which major players in the region are trying to achieve and most commentators recognise as eminently possible.


This would, however, require a sharp change of direction from both sides, including from the US, which has dramatically increased its military capabilities in South Korea and its military presence in the area. Already this week US B-1 bombers have flown from Guam over the Korean peninsula, joining the South Korean and Japanese airforces in joint exercises.

Such provocative actions on both sides must end. We must demand our governments focus on a peaceful resolution to this confrontation.
