Stop the War Coalition
|Stop the War Coalition|
Stop the War Coalition (StWC; informally Stop the War) is a British group established on 21 September 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks, to campaign against unjust wars.
War on Terror
StWC has campaigned against the wars that are part of the so-called War on Terror of the United States and its allies: the war in Afghanistan, the Iraq War, the NATO bombing of Libya and Britain's bombing in Syria. The demonstration against the Iraq War on 15 February 2003, organised with Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) and the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), has been claimed to be the largest public demonstration in British history.
