On Saturday 5 August there will be a national emergency demonstration in London

of Israel’s attacks and the end of Tony Blair’s support for George Bush’s wars.
Dozens of coaches have already been booked to bring protestors to London.
Everyone who is outraged by the barbarism we are witnessing in Lebanon and Gaza
should support this demonstration.

George Bush and Tony Blair insist the carnage must continue. They are rushing
bunker busting bombs and laser guided missiles to Israel, which will be used to
raise much of Lebanon to the ground. The UN describes what is taking place as
“horrific”. Half of those killed by Israel’s bombs have been children
(http://tinyurl.com/jq8xo). Gaza has been turned into “a prison with no way in
or out, and no protection from an fearsome battery of drones, precision
missiles, tank shells and artillery rounds”, with once again children being the
main victims. (http://tinyurl.com/ggael)

The rest of the world demands the slaughter stops now. On Saturday 5 August, we
need the biggest possible expression of our disgust over Tony Blair’s slavish
support for Bush’s endless wars and for our demand that Israel’s attacks on
Lebanon and Gaza end immediately.

The letter is being signed at a rate of one name every 10 seconds. We handed it
to 10 Downing Street with the first 10,000 signatures at the CEASE FIRE NOW
rally in Whitehall on Friday 28 July. We will hand it in again with tens of
thousands more names on the national emergency demonstration called for Saturday
5 August. Add your name now and join the demonstration on 5 August.
