On Tuesday 31 October, Parliament will debate and vote on the Iraq war for the first time since March 18 2003. Alex Salmond, one of the MPs who initiated the debate, says: 'This is the first time since the invasion of Iraq that the government can be held to account over this illegal and unwanted war.'
The Stop the War Coalition has called an emergency protest in front of Parliament when the debate takes place between 5pm and 7pm. MPs must end a war which has brought nothing but mass slaughter and devastation to the people of Iraq. There is no excuse. It's what the majority of British people want. It's what even the head of the British armed forces, General Sir Richard Dannatt, wants.
Protest 5pm to 7pm in Parliament Square, London SW1 (Westminster tube)
