of various organisations (Primarily CND
and the Muslim Association Of Britain
) formed on September 21, 2001
to try to bring a halt to the US-led war on terror and to settle racist
tension brought against Muslims
by this war.
They are well known for their posters, including their most famous "NOT IN MY NAME
" flyer-simply the phrase
"not in my name" in a large bold font. They pulled a coup just before the War In Iraq
began, by amassing millions of people in a huge demonstration against the war, although ultimately this protest had little effect on the British government
The group is strongly related to the UK Socialist Party
, trade union
s such as ASLEF
and other such groups.
