Stop the War’s AGM for members and delegates
9.30am – 5pm Saturday 22nd April 2017
Arlington Conference Centre
220 Arlington Road
This year’s national conference, which is Stop the War’s annual general meeting for members and delegates, is taking place against the background of a 16-year long war in the Middle East and a dangerous and bigoted new US President.
• US President Trump’s aggressive, belligerent and bigoted policies, including the travel ban on people from seven predominantly Muslim countries, are galvanising millions of people to stand up against him.
• Britain continues to be militarily involved in at least seven countries both through bombing campaigns authorised by parliament and through covert military actions.
• The refugee crisis, largely a result of Western military interventions, is continuing to afflict millions of people.
• New threats are developing, including a bellicose stance of the Trump administration towards Iran and China.
The conference will discuss how the anti-war movement should respond in the next 18 months. If you want to be part of this important planning and action conference, please make sure you book early to secure your place.
All individual members with up-to-date subscriptions can register for the conference. The date for the new members to join and attend the conference is 1 March 2017. Join now so you can attend the conference.
Details about proposing motions and nominations for the steering committee meeting are available here.
