Stop the Genocide in Gaza
Newcastle Stop the War public meeting


On Thursday January 18th Newcastle Stop the War held a public meeting Stop the Genocide in Gaza - Palestine War and the Middle East at the Newcastle Irish Centre. 

The meeting was held After more than 100 days of Israeli war crimes in Gaza and the West bank, backed by the US and Britain and yet another massive protest for Palestine in London at the weekend previously. The meeting was also held when the US/UK attacks on Yemen the previous week and also South Africa filing a case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Israel of genocide.

The meeting called to step up our campaigning and we cannot relent in our demand for peace and justice for Palestine. We have to continue speaking up and force our elected representatives to listen to this overwhelming call for peace and justice for the Palestinians. Following the speeches there were interesting questions and discussion on the importance of continuing to build the movement both regionally and nationally to block the British government's support for genocide and stop Israels' war on gaza and the necessity for justice for the Palestinians in their own lands.

Speakers were. Shumel Rahman, Newcastle City councillor, Abdel Malek, Palestinian Forum in Britain and Lindsey German, Stop the War Coalition convenor. The meeting was chaired by Roger Nettleship, Chair of NSW.

Welcome to the Newcastle Stop the War Coalition Website

Today, the Stop the War Coalition has to continually expose, and fight against the endless false flags and false justifications given by the big powers for their increasing indirect and direct military interventions. This has happened in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, Syria and now Ukraine. These days the Anglo-US/NATO military expansion in eastern Europe to the borders of Russia is causing a new provocative and dangerous military/nuclear war situation on the borders of Russia. The US, Britain and NATO are using Ukraine to wage a proxy war against Russia as well as trying to provoke China in East Asia. 

The Stop the War Coalition not only stands against all war but our main task is  to oppose the warmongering of the British Government as part of the US and NATO alliance. We  must continue to make a contribution for peace in the world by fighting for an anti-war government here in Britain, for Britain to get out of NATO and whilst opposing war everywhere.  Get involved and join in its vital work!

On Saturday October 28 Newcastle Palestine Solidarity Campaign organised its fourth action to stand with the Palestinian people. This was the largest and first demonstration.  Thousands marched from the Civic Centre to the Monument. This followed the emergency rally which had taken place on Monday October 9th at the Monument. Then another rally at the Monument on Saturday October 14th attended by hundreds followed by a rally at the BBC HQ in Newcastle the following Saturday when at the same time hundreds of thousands gathered in London on October 21 with protests across Britain and worldwide.  Newcastle Stop the War has also been taking part in these actions with activists joining activists in the NPSC  to help organise these events and enable thousands to express their solidarty with the Palestinan people and their resistance to the genocidal crimes of the Israeli state.  Many Jewish people have also joined these protests to demand that Israel stop the bomnbing of Gaza and demand an immediate ceasefire.
