British anti-war activists have a great opportunity to join hundreds of Arab and international delegates in Egypt later this month for the fourth Cairo Conference against US intervention and occupation in the Middle East.

The conference is a chance for people from across the world to discuss how we oppose war and occupation. Representatives of the Iraqi resistance, Palestinians and members of the democracy movements in Egypt and North Africa will attend.

Since the last Cairo Conference in March 2005 Egypt’s democracy movement has made huge advances. For the first time in over 50 years there have been open street demonstrations and candidates of the left have stood in a general election.

Mohamed Hassan is one of the conference organisers. He said, “For generations, we in Egypt and the Arab world were isolated from our friends in Europe and North America.

“Imperialism divided us – now the new imperialism is bringing us together to decide how to stop war and invasion, and to campaign for radical reform.

“We are all part of the anti-war and anti-capitalist movements. Please join us, so that we can learn from each other.”

The conference takes place from 23 to 26 March. For full details e-mail [email protected]
