George Galloway, in his 20 minute talk, brought the audience to its feet man times. His talk was full of passion, and he termed George Bush and Tony Blair as criminals for their destruction of Fallujah.

Concerning a 6 year old Iraqi girl who was wounded there and is living in the UK, he said:

"One year ago the United States Air Force backed by a perimeter ring of steel created by the Blackwatch of the British Army - her house was destroyed, and she lost her mother, her father, her brothers, her sisters, her grandmother, her grandfather. All of them murdered by George Bush and Tony Blair. And I told that little girl we in this movement will never rest until we have brought to account the criminals responsible for the massacre of your family."

The London conference called on the anti-war movement in all countries to:

* Organise international demonstrations on March 18-19 2006, the third anniversary of the war and invasion, calling for the immediate withdrawal of troops and an end to the occupation.

* Campaign for a full international public inquiry into the assault on Fallujah last year.

* Give full support to the campaigns of military families in the US, Britain and the other occupying countries.

* Develop an international coordination from this conference to plan further events.

* Campaign against the privatisation of Iraqi oil.

* Oppose any attack on Iran or Syria.

Additionally:

"This international Peace Conference of 1,400 anti-war activists from Britain, the USA and many other countries demands the release of all illegally detained prisoners in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.

We urge the release of the four Chritian peace campaigners, Norman Kember, Tom Fox, James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden, and we ask those holding them to return them to their families unharmed."
