      Massive UK anti-war protest planned for September 28
      For details see:

      On Saturday, 28th September there will be a huge "Don't Attack Iraq"
      demonstration in central London. It promises to be easily the biggest
      anti-war demonstration in Britain since 11 September 2001 (marches in
      November and April attracted more than 100,000) and one of the biggest
      anti-war actions in Western Europe in many years.
      Assemble 1pm Embankment to march to Hyde Park

      British Prime Minister Tony Blair is George Bush's key ally. British
      bombers and British troops are expected to join US forces if the war against
      Iraq goes ahead. Yet opinion polls here consistently reveal massive
      opposition to the planned war - opposition that will be visible on the
      streets of London on 28 September.
      Tony Blair risks losing the support of the British public and his own party
      by continuing to endorse Bush's policies.
      According to a survey carried out for the Daily Mirror newspaper by ICM
      Research, 71 per cent of people in Britain oppose joining a war on Iraq
      without the approval of the UN. 51% consider George Bush a threat to world
      peace, and 22% consider him the biggest threat to world peace.
      The demonstration on 28th September is jointly organised by the Stop the War
      Coalition and the Muslim Association of Britain. It is supported by eleven
      national labour unions, including the country's largest, UNISON, as well as
      numerous religious organizations, Members of Parliament and Members of the
      European Parliament, the Mayor of London, human rights and community-based
      campaigns, along with prominent individuals from all walks of life.

      We believe it is in the interest of people in the USA to be aware of the
      widespread and mounting opposition in Britain to the planned war against
