Unite Against Terror was a group established in July 2005 in the wake of suicide bombings in London, Israel and Iraq, in support of a statement calling for "a global movement of citizens against terrorism."[1] It was sponsored by OpenDemocracy and Madrid11.net.[2]

The Alliance for Workers Liberty claimed that it was "a sub-group created by Labour Friends of Iraq." This was denied by Alan Johnson:[3]

First, it is not true that the UAT statement (http://www.unite-against-terror.com/) is a Labour Friends of Iraq venture. Of the organisers only myself and Jane Ashworth are involved in LFIQ. The blogs Harrys Place and Hak Mao, and an individual, Adrian Cohen, are the other organisers.
Second, I did not write the statement alone. Harry and I co-wrote it with help and input from other people.[4]

Johnson and the other organisers would go on to be involved in the similar Euston Manifesto group a year later.
