LEBANON: WE NEED YOUR HELP URGENTLY

NATIONAL EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATION
SATURDAY 5 AUGUST: ASSEMBLE 12 NOON
SPEAKERS CORNER, HYDE PARK, LONDON
MARCH PASS US EMBASSY AND DOWNING STREET
TO PARLIAMENT SQUARE FOR RALLY

After the Qana massacre, no one can deny what we are witnessing: the
systematic destruction of two countries. Everyone who is horrified at what
is happening can help to bring this carnage to an end. We need the biggest
possible turnout on Saturday's emergency demonstration. What you do in the
next few days can make a difference. Tony Blair is under the most intense
pressure on all sides to detach himself from his master George Bush's
catastrophic warmongering and call for an immediate unconditional
ceasefire. His party wants him to stop. His cabinet wants him to stop. The
vast majority of people in the country want him to stop. Our demonstration
can intensify that pressure to breaking point.

Stop the War has not experienced anything like it since the run up to the
Iraq war in 2003. Over 1000 people every day are contacting the Stop the
War office. They want to be on our mailing list. They want to know what
they can do to build Saturday's emergency demonstration in London. They
want to know where to get leaflets, where coaches are arranged to
transport people to London. They want to donate to help fund the
demonstration.

WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW: WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1 DONATE: We have had the most fantastic response to our emergency
financial appeal, from pensioners sending us a few pounds to peers in the
House of Lords. But we still need much more to help fund the
demonstration and publicise it as widely as we can. Please donate whatever
you can big or small. GO HERE TO DONATE: http://tinyurl.com/qvzt5

2 LEAFLET EVERYWHERE: Download the demonstration leaflet from our website
and distribute it as widely as you can. Encourage everyone you know to
join the demonstration and spread the word among their friends, work
colleagues, neighbours etc. Leaflet mosques (we're getting a phenomenal
response), churches, community centres, libraries, tube and bus stations.
DOWNLOAD LEAFLET: http://www.stopwar.org.uk
If you are in London, get leaflets from the Stop the War office: 020 7278
6694.

3 OUTSIDE LONDON: If you are outside of London, find out about coaches in
your area on our website. Get together with friends and book a coach
yourselves and get everyone you know to buy a ticket. People who know
about the demonstration want to be on it and want to know how to get
there. There are dozens of coaches already booked from every corner of
Britain. More are being booked every day. See our website:

4 IN LONDON: If you live in London and have time to help this week,
contact the Stop the War office. We have much to do to ensure that the
people of London know about the demonstration and to prepare for Saturday.
We need help for mailouts, to make placards, to leaflet mosques, churches,
community groups etc. We need help to steward the demonstration on
Saturday. TELEPHONE 020 7278 6694

5 THURSDAY IS TUBE LEAFLETTING DAY. We are making Thursday 3 August tube
leafletting day. We need every tube station in London leafletted in the
morning and evening. Leaflets are available from the Stop the War office.
Contact us now if you can help. 020 7278 6694. Email office@stopwar.org.uk

6 KEEP SIGNING THE TONY BLAIR LETTER
Get everyone you know to sign the letter to Tony Blair, which we will hand
in to Downing Street during the demonstration on Saturday. We are being
sent thousands of signatures by post and email. Many thousands are signing
online. SIGN HERE: http://tinyurl.com/rgdwt

7 HELP STEWARD THE DEMONSTRATION. We need stewards urgently to help on the
day of the demonstration. If you can help, phone 020 7278 6694
