Because of the attacks on the aid flotilla to Gaza, there is now an emergency protest demonstration being held in London on 5th June. Stop the War and BMI are fully involved in organising this protest, given the outrage at the deaths of at least ten on the flotilla and the continued imprisonment of hundreds more.

We have therefore decided to continue with the conference until lunchtime, but then to curtail it and ask delegates to join the demonstration in the afternoon.

This means that conference registration will begin at 9.00 for a 9.30 start, the conference will continue until 1pm with a final session which talks about Islamophobia, the war on terror and how they are linked. We will then adjourn to Downing St to join the march to the Israeli embassy.
