Past Action

Demo outside MK Station, 11th December

Don't Bomb Syria!

CMK shoppers were asked to stop and think on Saturday, 28th November 2015, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Members and supporters from MK Stop the War group demonstrated to draw attention to the forthcoming parliamentary vote over the UK extending bombing raids against ISIS into Syria, believing that the escalation of UK involvement in bombing raids is potentially playing into the terrorists hands, making the UK an even more likely terrorist target and contributing nothing to the urgent and compelling need for a negotiated peace amongst the different factions fighting in Syria. Shoppers were asked to contact their M.P. to express their concern and urge a vote against the government proposals. Placards and leaflets spelt out the message- DON'T BOMB SYRIA!


No To Military Intervention In Syria!

More than a dozen people turned up to support a Milton Keynes Stop the War stall on Thursday 29 August 2014 (11.30am to 1.00pm). On the same day Parliament was debating a Government motion on Syria the MKSTW stall was urging people to oppose any military intervention. A vast majority of passers-by were in agreement with us and over a hundred people signed our petition against any military intervention.

What you can do


  1. Come to the Saturday Stall
    From time to time we hold a stall at City Square Central Milton Keynes (opposite the library). We distribute leaflets, get petitions signed and generally keep the agenda on the public's mind. It is also an opportunity to chat and discuss current issues with each other. You could just come and meet others, pose questions and share your thoughts - you would be most welcome.  See MK Group Events for next stall dates.

  2. Put your name on the stall rota
    We need people to commit themselves to staffing the stall. General duties may involve picking up the equipment, setting up or just being there to provide moral support. On each stall we will need at least 4 people on the rota so you would not be alone.

  3. Take part in organising
    You might have administration skills, be good at organising, or accounting. You may have good ideas or see things from new angles. Whatever your particular skill or knowledge we need your help in organising events and keeping the show on the road. We have a loose steering committee comprising the usual 'officers' but we welcome anyone. Ring the contact number and find out how you could help and when the next meeting is.

  4. Become a member or give a donation
    We are a voluntary group, and to cover the cost of printing, mailings, coach bookings, etc. we rely upon donations from supporters. Membership is also available at 1, from the Stall or from the contacts below

  5. Turning up when needed
    You might be busy and only able to turn up for the odd event. That's fine. Make sure we have your contact details and we will keep you in touch. We will tell you when we need a big turn out for something. But why not write letters to the local press or politicians keeping the issues 'live' with them (see below). We can help.
