Anti-war protesters are to stage a rally against US President Barack Obama on May 24, when he is expected to arrive in London for a state visit.
According to Stop the War Coalition, the demonstration titled as “Stop the Obama Wars” will be held outside Buckingham Palace at 17:30 GMT, exactly when the US president is to meet Queen Elizabeth for the full ceremonial welcome and banquet.
Stop the War revealed that anti war groups would welcome the US “War President” with protests, since he is the one who is paying for three wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.
“In just two years, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has attacked six countries -- two more than George W. Bush. He is spending more on the US military than any president in history,” Stop the War said.
In his three-day visit to Britain before heading to G8 summit in France, Obama will meet UK Prime Minister David Cameron. He will also address both Houses of Parliament.
