IN THIS NEWSLETTER:   
1) CLEARING THE GROUND FOR WAR AGAINST IRAN   

************************************   
CLEARING THE GROUND FOR WAR AGAINST IRAN

There is a frightening crescendo building towards war in the   
Middle East. The UN is debating a resolution on Syria demanding   
regime change. This follows the withdrawal of the Arab League   
delegation there and calls for intervention. The US military is   
clearing the ground for war against Iran.

In a report to Congress, Director of National Intelligence James   
Clapper claimed that Iranian leaders “are now more willing to   
conduct an attack in the United States.”

Meanwhile Defence Secretary Leon Panetta went on TV to assert   
that Iran would have a nuclear bomb within a year. The US is   
conducting a military build-up in parallel to the propaganda   
offensive. A third US carrier is now on the way to the Gulf.

On 28 January, Stop the War launched its national DON’T ATTACK     
IRAN campaign at a 500 strong rally outside the US Embassy in   
London. SEE REPORT & VIDEOS OF SPEECHES: http://bit.ly/zMKNEL.

We are asking Stop the War local groups and supporters to   
organise urgent activists’ meetings in every area to start   
planning local campaigns against an attack on Iran.

On Saturday 11th February we are calling a national day of action   
with protests, die-ins, sit-ins, mock air raids, petitioning and   
street meetings, to publicise the arguments against an attack.
