Mobilise to show your opposition to Trump and May’s warmongering.
US President Trump intends to escalate the war against Syria. Today he tweeted ‘get ready Russia’ as he announced that the US is preparing a missile attack.
The Stop The War Coalition have launched a nationwide tour to explore the theme ‘Why We Need An Anti-War Government’, with a series of public meetings across the country.
The tour will be an opportunity to discuss the progressive international role that a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour government could play. Following Britain’s military involvement in Iraq, Libya and Syria, interventions that continue today spreading chaos and human tragedy across the Middle East, Britain changing its approach to war could be a significant and important shift.
The following article by Stephen Bell, on British policy on Yemen, was previously published by Stop the war coalition.
For some time now international pressure has been building up against the Saudi led war upon Yemen. In February this year, the European Parliament voted for an EU wide arms embargo on Saudi Arabia. Recently, 64 members of the US Congress, from both Democrats and Republicans, called upon President Obama to “postpone sales of new arms” to Saudi Arabia.
The Times on 8 December provided such a classic example of the chief methods of Tory media distortion that it is worth analysing. It is in an article headlined ‘Stop the War forced into new retreat.’ Examining this story provides a general lesson for the left in how to reply to the habitual distortion of the Tory media.
