Stop the War Coalition















statement on















Middle East revolutions


















There must be no US or British intervention in Libya: the future of Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen must be determined by the people of those countries alone.
The uprisings sweeping the Middle East deserve the support of all progressive people. They are directed against autocracies which have denied their people basic rights and the possibility of a decent life.
These autocracies have also, for the most part, depended on the self-interested support of the big powers, the USA and Britain first of all. Western governments have prioritised cheap oil, arms sales and support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians above the rights of the Arab peoples.
The response of the British government to the events of the last month exemplifies this hypocrisy. David Cameron has prioritised arms sales to the region. And the clamour to intervene in Libya has more to do with control of that country’s oil resources than with support for Libya’s people.
The Conservative-Liberal Coalition has followed Tony Blair’s lead in seeing the Middle East entirely through the prism of the interests of BP and British Aerospace. Any British intervention in the region would be directed to furthering those interests, not the freedom or democracy which can only present a challenge to western domination of the region.
Stop the War Coalition is clear that there must be no US or British intervention in Libya or anywhere else in the Middle East under any pretext whatsoever. Such interference over the last century is the root of the region’s troubles, and its continuation will solve none of the difficulties there.
The future of Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen and all the other states facing popular uprisings must be determined by the people of those countries alone. Solidarity with those fighting for their democratic and national freedom is our obligation.
We can best discharge it by demanding that the government at long last takes its hands off the Middle East and its people, leaving them to settle accounts with their own rulers.

Events in Egypt are at a turning point.
The movement has forced Mubarak toannounce his departure, but demonstrators are demanding he goes now.
Pro-Mubarak thugs - many of them clearly plain clothes police - are trying tocreate a strategy of tension, violently attacking protesters in Tahrir square.The next few days are crucial to what happens next. We are therefore calling a demonstration in solidarity with the Egyptian uprising this Sunday.

S3M-07870 Bill Kidd (Glasgow) (Scottish National Party): Support for the Egyptian People— That the Parliament wishes to express its full support for the demonstrations by the Egyptian people by stating its unequivocal belief that all peoples have the right to live in a free and democratic society unshackled by dictatorial oppression and the fear of arrest, detention and torture by a private army disguised as a police force, as it considers is the case of the 30-year rule of Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, and calls on President Mubarak to halt what it sees as the thuggish behaviour of his supporters and to step aside now, rather than holding off until September, in order to avert further bloodshed of innocent Egyptians and allow a peaceful transition to democracy.
