This event will take place online.
To celebrate this, and the organisation’s 20th anniversary, please join us for this online event where some of the Patrons of Stop The War will choose their favourite items from the collections and reflect on their history within the movement.
Following the presentation on 7 October, parts of the archive will be on public display on 9 October at Bishopsgate Institute.
This event will be held via Zoom. You need a computer/laptop or mobile phone to access the Zoom website, and a reliable internet connection. For further information on how to join a Zoom meeting, you can watch the joining video here.

Meet the Hosts
Stop the War
Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the “war on terror”. Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere.
Stop the War has organised around 40 national demonstrations, including the largest protests ever held in Britain, most memorably on 15 February 2003, when up to two million gathered on London’s streets to oppose the Iraq war .
Other events include thousands of public meetings across the country, direct action in the run up to UK wars – including walkouts from schools, colleges and workplaces – two People’s Assemblies, international peace conferences, vigils, lobbies of Parliament and anti-war cultural events.
