Between 20th -25th September the Labour Party will be holding their annual national conference in Manchester. To coincide with this there will be a demo organised by Stop the War and a counter conference organised by The Convention of the Left. Due to the way in which the UK government has overseen an unprecedented increase in social control, No Borders Manchester will be hosting a number of events.
There are coaches to the stop the war demo from around the country.
Friday 19th September
The demo follows serious attacks on Roma people in Italy including physical attacks on camps, threats of fingerprinting of the Roma population (including children) and right-wing/fascist manipulations by Italian politicians & press that are linking Roma people to ‘crime’ and ‘illegal immigration’ which is increasing popularist calls for their expulsion from Italy and destruction of Roma camps.

For a World without Borders, States and War! Block on the Stop the War demo with the Anarchist Federation. Look out for the red and black flags.
The Stop the War Coalition have called for a march through Manchester on Saturday 20th September. We invite all anti-authoritarians, anarchists and all those against states, nations and borders to join the ‘freedom of movement’ bloc, and to play a trick or two on those clowns in the Labour Party circus.
