British Activists to Protest at London’s War Rhetoric against Iran, Syria

British anti-war activists plan to stage a massive rally to voice their anger at the British government’s war rhetoric against Iran and Syria.

Anti-war activists will march outside the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Wednesday to protest the government’s warmongering policies and its threats of war against Iran and Syria.

The demonstration, dubbed as ‘Peace For Iran, Peace For Syria – No To War’ has been organized by Peace Strike campaign group and is planned to be held on King Charles Street, off Whitehall.

The peace campaigners who are pledging not to “allow another war to happen” are also calling for a three-day continuous strike “to stop war”.

The US and Britain and their close ally Israel have recently intensified their war rhetoric against Iran. The two arch foes of the Islamic Republic accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.

The United States has long stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.

Iran has warned that in case of an attack by either the US or Zionist Occupation Israel, it will target 32 American bases in the Middle East and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

An estimated 40 percent of the world’s oil supply passes through the waterway.
