9/11 Seventh Anniversary Anti-war Protests, London, 11th September 2008.

By Published Last Edited 2008-09-11 00:00:00

On the seventh anniversary of 9/11 and the destruction of the World Trade Center complex in the United States, peace campaigners gather in London to mark the event with a series of anti-war protests. Members of the 9/11 truth movement gather at the US Embassy to hold a week-long vigil to deal with the WTC moment.

This vigil is joined by members of the Parliament Square Peace Campaign who gather to publicise the World Strike taking place in the US/UK and to hand in to the Americans a Peace Plan formally setting out why and how the Americans may sue for peace to end the so-called War on Terror.

On September 12th, campaigners gather outside to highlight the case of Dr Aafia Siddiqui, currently detained in the United States pending action by US authorities who claim she is a proscribed enemy of the United States. Dr Aafia Siddiqui is currently subject to a media campaign to assist US authorities in transiting her into permanent incarceration.

The anniversary and protests take place as a poll is revealed stating that the globalised non-state conflict ideal incited by US authorities in tandem with US globalisation since 2001 has now been rejected by the majority of the worlds population and now only enjoys support primarily within G8 member nations.

CDs, leaflets and flyers sit in a box ready to be handed out to passers-by re-examining the events of 9/11 and setting out how and why the official narrative of the event is troublesome.

Campaigners hold up a banner demanding the US and UK government formally adopt and take on a peace plan to resolve the War on Terror. The protest takes place on the day new evidence emerges that international support for the morally obscure conflict has collapsed and world opinion no longer supports that notion of Al Qaeda were responsible for 9/11.

Seven years after the War on Terror begins, the US government has failed to win the hearts and minds of the people.
