Peace camp in Trafalgar Square

Issue No. 1942

A peace camp will be set up in Trafalgar Square, London, on Wednesday of next week to start the protests leading up to the mass Stop the War demonstration on 19 March.

The camp is being organised by a range of groups, including Military Families Against the War, London CND, Peace Not War, Hampstead and Highgate Woodcraft Folk and School Students Against the War.

It will open on Wednesday evening with an event involving comedian Mark Steel and samba band Rhythms of Resistance.

On Thursday 17 March Tony Benn will be speaking, while on Friday evening military families will host a forum, followed by a hip-hop gig featuring MCs SkinnyMan and Lowkey.
