As the group has been attracting criticism for their views on Syria, Stop the War Coalition has been accused of preventing pro-revolution Syrians from protesting bombing of their country. Stop the War Coalition is facing a further barrage of criticism following accusations that they attempted to bar Syrian protesters from an anti-war march on Saturday.The UK anti-war group has been accused of being apologists for the Syrian regime, reportedly inviting pro-Assad speakers to its events and no-platforming Syrians who support the revolution.The group has come under more scutiny recently as the leader of the opposition Labour party Jeremy Corbyn has been a leading member in the group since it was founded.During the demonstration on Saturday, protesters from the Syrian solidarity movement attempted to join to express their opposition to the British bombing campaign, while also standing against Assad and his allies.Immediately after joining the demo, John Rees, chaiman of Stop the War Coalition, reportedly told a Syrian refugee and a member of the Syria Solidarity movement, Peter Tatchell, that they had to leave the protest.
