The Stop the War Coalition (STWC) was formed on 21 September 2001 at a public meeting of over 2,000 people in London. The organisation co-ordinated, in conjunction with Muslim Association of Britain and Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, massive demonstrations in London against wars in Afghanistan (2001) and Iraq (2003).

Organisations from the British 'old left' tend to predominate the coalition, especially trade unions and socialist/communist groups. STWC has been accused of operating as a quasi-front for the Socialist Worker Party [1].
