Ali Fadhil, the Iraqi who made the documentary about the US assault on Fallujah shown last week on Channel 4, has delayed leaving Britain so that he can speak at the Stop the War Coalition student teach-in on 2 February. For more details of the teach-in see page 10.
Students at the LSE in central London protested against the visit of Tom Ridge, the US Homeland Security Adviser, on Friday of last week. Thursday of this week was planned as a “Day of Outreach”, to coincide with George Bush’s inauguration, where activists were set to go out and raise awareness about forthcoming anti-war protests.
The Stop the War Coalition has organised a number of rallies around the country leading up to the day of disobedience on 15 February and the national demonstration in central London on Saturday 19 March.
