Revealed: Stop the War Coalition hosted a supporter of Syria airstrikes- at the same event where they stopped Syrians from speaking

Stop the War Coalition hosted Crispin Blunt MP – who would later vote for airstrikes on Syria a month later – on a platform about bombing Syria in which they stopped Syrians from speakingCrispin Blunt incidentally made a case for intervention from the STW platform – he just doubted its efficiency without coordination with the Syrian regime on the ground. He later changed his mind.

In other words, Stop the War stopped Syrians speaking whilst allowing someone who would then vote to bomb their country to do so.

Of course, they continue to slander opposition to them as an attack on them with the laughable notion that they are the leaders of “anti-imperialism” – when they have routinely hosted pro-interventionists (Crispin Blunt was just one example) on their platforms (detailed article coming soon).

The guy was also a supporter of the Iraq War (though he turned against it, but nonetheless) which didn’t seem to dissuade STW from inviting him.

The clashes at the event also featured on the Daily Politics show.

Hands off Assad, not Hands off Syria.
