People’s Assembly for democracy

Issue No. 2040

The Stop the War Coalition has convened a special People’s Assembly on Tuesday 20 March—the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq—at Central Hall in central London.

The People’s Assembly has been convened to hold “The debate parliament won’t have” over the reasons for going to war in Iraq and the continuing disaster in that country.

The Stop the War Coalition asks communities and workplaces across the country to choose representatives for the assembly in order to give the greatest possible democratic weight to the debates.

Ensure that your anti-war, trade union, community, religious or political organisation is there.

A wide range of MPs, anti-war politicians from the US, academics and other expert witnesses will join the debate.

Tony Benn, the president of the Stop the War Coalition, will chair the event. He says, “The majority of our citizens believe that we should end our involvement in George Bush’s wars, and yet there have been few debates in the House of Commons and public anxieties have rarely found expression in the democratic process. That is why I would like to invite you to take part in this People’s Assembly.”

People’s Assembly, Tuesday 20 March, 2-8pm, Central Hall Westminster, London SW1. Register online at or phone 020 7278 6694
