No Return to Blair Wars – Online Launch
Start: Wednesday, March 10, 2021• 7:00 PM • Greenwich Mean Time : Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London (GMT+00:00)
Anti-war opinion is deeply embedded within British society and has been
since the disaster of the Iraq War. The desire for a new foreign policy
was part of the attraction of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party; to distance
itself from Corbyn, and the anti-war movement he represents, the Labour
leadership has recently endorsed attacks on Stop the War - with
accusations that by opposing wars we support dictators. Our members and
supporters will recognise this trope.
To rebuke these attacks Lindsey German (Stop the War Convenor) and Andrew Murray (Former Stop the War Chair and Advisor to Jeremy Corbyn) have produced a new pamphlet, No Return to Blair Wars – A Reply to Open Labour, clarifying Stop the War Coalition’s anti-imperialist philosophy and setting out the left’s foreign policy choices.
As a result of the overwhelming response and debate provoked by the pamphlet we've decided to host an online launch event where you can hear from the authors and put forward your questions on the topics discussed in the pamphlet. We look forward to seeing you there.
