What to do

Get involved Join your local anti-war group - check out www.stopwar.org.uk for the nearest one or phone the Stop the War Coalition on 07951 235915 or 020 7053 2153. Make sure you take copies of the Weekly Worker. Send weekly reports We want to feature as many local anti-war activities as we can - send brief reports to weeklyworker@cpgb.org.uk or fax 020 8961 9193. Two hundred or so words will do. Order extra papers Don't go to any rally, meeting or demonstration without extra copies. Write, email or phone for packs of 5, 10, 15, 20 or more. Send us the money for what you sell every month. Left over papers should be given away to promising contacts. They will give you a donation later if they like the paper. If we already send you a bulk order now is the time for an increase. Whole layers are coming into direct political activity for the first time. Older generations of activists are mobilised too. Young people are especially eager to learn. Organise people's assemblies The first national assembly in London on March 12 was a great success. Initiate local people's assemblies in your school, college, workplace, borough, town or city. People's assemblies can coordinate actions, discuss strategies and tactics and organise new, previously inactive forces. If there is already an assembly set up a report-back meeting from March 12. Organise street stalls Party centre has posters, leaflets, badges, stickers, pamphlets and of course the Weekly Worker to stock you up. Just set up something like a decorator's table in the town centre or wherever, stick CPGB posters around it and you are ready. Use petitions against the war to engage people. Sell the Weekly Worker, recruit to the Stop the War Coalition and the people's assemblies and take the names and addresses of contacts. Get a 'campaign pack' - 020 8965 0659.
