Nothing to do this Saturday?

There are a range of events this Saturday, some of which are listed below.
Firstly, the "peace strike" initiative in London -

www.peacestrike.org

Pre-emptive Peace Strikes

Initiating Peace Strikes in UK/USA/Israel…
Plus other countries around the world

Don’t Attack Iran

Saturday 27th October from 2pm and alternate Saturdays from then on and every third Wednesday of the month from 10am. Check the website for latest updates

Parliament Square

Westminster, London


SOCPA Act 2005 – Authorised Demonstration


Join us on our strike for peace

All welcome

Withdraw your labour, book a day off work, or take a break from your usual routine and show the government that you are opposed to any actions or steps that might be taken that threaten the sovereign nation of Iran, or any other country.

We cannot repeat the mistakes that have been made causing the appalling mindless slaughter of the innocent people of Iraq that we have all felt and witnessed in one form or another in the media. We have to get ourselves organised now in order to have any real chance of saving the Iranian people from the same such horrible fate. It is not too late we can and WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

We say NO to any threat or action by either UK/USA/Israel.

What Sorts Of People Make Up A Strike?

We can all be strikers if we care about each other and other people. The Peace Strike has been formed to provide a direct action movement whereby housewives, parents, students, workers, people on benefits, homeless people, people with disabilities, carers, pensioners, families, etc, can join together in solidarity in a common cause for peace, united in action and standing strong together.

We would also like to hear from individuals, churches, clubs, campaign groups, workers unions, etc, who would like to start a picket and to establish a picket line in their own town or city in solidarity nationwide.

On Strike For Humanity


At first you could book the day off work or ask for a day in lieu. You may prefer to join for part of the day or come for the evening only, depending. You should feel comfortable with the action that you take, come and make new friends and join together to make a stand for peace. And of course, we are not expecting emergency workers to abandon their post.

Please bring: Placards, banners, food, musical instruments plus anything else you would like or need for the day.


Code Of Conduct

We would like all participating groups to act accordingly to the following code of conduct:



· To stand united and participate in peaceful non-violent direct action.



· To be non-confrontational, peaceful and respectful in our attitude and manner. We will act in a courteous and responsible manner at all times.



· Everyone is welcome to join us in our planned demonstrations and actions and all will be able to contribute equally within the group.



“Together we are strong”

Secondly, the Republic Annual Conference -

Republic Annual Conference this Saturday

The conference is for members only, however, each member may bring a guest
and non-members may join at the door (minimum of £10).

This year's Annual Conference and AGM will be on Saturday October 27th.
This is a good opportunity to meet the people running the campaign, to
find out more about future plans and to talk to other members. Guest
speakers include Leanne Woods AM, Norman Baker MP and Graham Watson MEP.

PLEASE NOTE: The venue is near Holloway Tube station, which unfortunately
will be closed on the day of the conference. However, Highbury and
Islington tube station, on the Victoria line, is just a ten minute walk
down the road. If you exit the station and turn left and walk up
Holloway Road you'll pass Holloway Road station on your left. The venue is a
further 200 yards on the right, next door to Waitrose. There are also
buses travelling up Holloway Road.


PS: Keep up with the debate on the Guardian website:

Thirdly, the Campaign Against Euro Federalism AGM and Public Meeting in Birmingham I publicised on Sunday in my weekly links.

Sometimes it would be useful to have the time shifting powers of Hiro in the TV series Heroes to be able to attend more than one event at the same time! Good luck to all involved in these events.
