Assange and the Anti-War Mass Assembly in Trafalgar Square

October 17, 2011 by

October 8, 2011 marked the tenth anniversary of the founding of Stop the War Coalition in London, the most active group in Britain campaigning against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Amidst the bustle of Trafalgar Square, a site which has seen many political and anti-war rallies over the years, and which now prominently displays the official clock to count down London’s unprecedented third Olympic Games in 2012, a rather sundry group of individuals poured in at noon with flags and signs calling attention to various issues under the umbrella of the anti-war movement ranging from Afghanistan to Palestine to Syria.
