People's Assembly � Saturday 30th August 2003Dear Friends, As you will probably know, the Coalition has agreed to call a second People's Assembly on August 30. The first People's Assembly was held in early March, on a broad and representative basis, to express the real views of the British people against the impending war on Iraq. It was intended to address the denial of democracy involved in Blair's decision to go to war without the consent of the people. This second People's Assembly is likewise intended to give voice to the views of the majority of people on the key question of the lies told and deceit practised by the government in seeking to justify the war and win support for it. No weapons of mass destruction - the ostensible reason for the war - have been found in Iraq and the government, it is daily becoming clearer, manipulated and misrepresented information to conceal the absence of any real threat from these non-existent WMDs. Indicting The Government For War Lies The Assembly on August 30 aims to keep the pressure on the government by indicting it for its lies, which in themselves constitute a negation of democracy and proper debate. It will include presentations by legal and weapons-inspections experts which will help expose the ministerial deceit, and also provide a voice for ordinary people to speak out against what was done "in our name" and how to prevent it happening again. The linked issues of preserving peace and developing democracy will be central to the Assembly. A successful Assembly will help set the tone for the whole conference season on the war issue. It can also express the continuing vitality of the anti-war movement and help build support for the national demonstration to be held on September 27. We would like the Assembly to be as representative as possible, and that local groups should convene meetings over the next two months to choose representatives who can speak for the millions who marched in February against war, and the many more outraged at the revelations since. If that is not possible, please choose delegates by any other means that seem appropriate. We would ask that you send in delegates names to the Stop the War Office either over the phone or via the e-mail. Further details as to the agenda will be sent out soon. Delegates will be charged �5 each; this is to cover the cost of the room. The Assembly will be held at Friends Meeting House, London WC1 (nearest tube Euston) and will begin at 10:30 hours and end at 17:00 hours. For further details please do not hesitate to contact the office on 020 7053 2153/4/5/6 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For the Steering Committee Andrew Murray, chair Lindsey German, convenor
- 'Fine, you won't be wanting your golf clubs, I'll just borrow them'; or
- 'Oops!' as the rake he walked on barely missed his face; or
- 'Oh well, can I borrow it when you're done then?; or
- 'The birds are always eating my grass seed.'

Music for DXingOkay, some of you have this on CD already, but now "Music for DXing" is available here, courtesy of the kind and friendly 1104. Of course if anyone actually wants it on CD anyway, if e.g. you are on a 56k line for example, email me! Thoughts on it are, of course, most welcome and appreciated.

"He who kills a tyrant to 'free' a country some thousands of miles away from his own will be praised by a public who fail to understand their 'representatives'' actions and rewarded with a more lucrative and more easily governed oil profit margin." (Anon.)
A recent consideration of a friend of mine, who believes the United Kingdom to be on the brink of a civil war...
