At the core of the British anti-war movement there has been a failure of 
internationalism. In running a campaign against British intervention in 
Syria, Stop the War has seemingly run a campaign with as little 
reference to Syrians as possible, and it stands accused of outright 
apologism for Russia and Assad, giving platforms to regime loyalists. As 
a result, the relatively simple anti-war narrative – opposition to 
British bombing, condemnation of Turkey and Assad, and practical 
solidarity with secular and progressive forces in Syria – has lost its 
clarity and persuasiveness in the public eye.
