George Bush has asked US Congress to add 196 billion dollars as a supplementto the 450 billion dollars he has already got for war spending in 2008. He calls the supplemental spending the "Global War on Terror Request" and it includes plans for a new bunker busting bomb which could be geared toward bombing underground targets in Iran.

And Britain's prime minister Gordon Brown has now repeatedly stated his support for Bush's horrifying plans for endless global war, based on what Brown calls "our shared values and our shared destiny".The conference is open to all - whether delegates from political organisations, trade unions, community groups and campaigns, or from individuals.

This international peace conference will bring together peace campaigners from across the world and which will be of paramount importance in helping to devise theantiwar movement's strategy for building international opposition to the intensifying warmongering of George Bush and his allies.
