Britain's Stop the War Campaign to Stage Demonstration Against Imperialist Onslaught on Libya

SWC to stage anti-Libya war protest

Londoners are to protest on June 28, demonstrating their outrage against the interference of the UK government in Libya war leading to the death of scores of Libyan civilians.

Stop the War Coalition announced that the “Stop Bombing Libya “demonstration will be staged on Tuesday June 28 at Downing Street. The UK's main anti-war Campaign have urged all the anti-Libya war protesters to descend to the London streets forcing the UK government to step aside from the bloody war in Libya imposed by the NATO state members.

Stop the War rejected the British media's agenda, claiming that the NATO's airstrikes were planned to protect civilians, and that the coalition governments have entered into the war only to free the Libyan people from Gaddafi's crimes against humanity.

However, it believes that “the main aim of the NATO intervention is to place in power a government subordinate to the Western powers.”

Britain has been playing an important role in the Libya war, providing aircraft, ships, and military personnel for the air strikes launched by the Western coalition to oust the Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi and change the regime accordingly.

Analysts repeatedly declared that the British government had not learned lessons from the past decade's interventionist wars, since the military interference is not the immediate answer to what the Libyan anti-government protesters have been looking for.
