Saturday's Iraq Demonstration - update

A large number of people from Cambridge will be going to the London
demonstration tomorrow (Saturday), which jointly against bombing Iraq and
against the sanctions on Iraq. Judging by the turnout at last night's
meeting in London, the demo will be important and impressive - please
come. The demo is peaceful and legal (unless you take part in the "die-in"
on a public highway), and is supported by CND and the National Peace
Council, amoungst others. 

National Express coaches depart from Cambridge Bus Station, and stop (on
their way to Victoria) at the Embankment, by Embankment Tube, which is

Cambridge -> London Embankment    
9:30  ->  11:05
10:00 ->  11:35
day return: 8 pounds (6 pounds with discount coachcard)

I highly recommend that you buy a ticket today. If you don't buy a ticket
in advance, you might want to aim for the 9:30 coach in case the 10:00 is

If people going on the earlier coach, or travelling by another means, want
to stick with other people from Cambridge, we will be meeting up at 11:40
outside the Embankment tube stop, i.e. at the north end of the Hungerford
rail & pedestrian bridge.
