Response to Tristram Hunt MP's attack on Stop the War Coalition
PRESS RELEASE: 6 December 2015
Tristram Hunt’s attack on Stop the War Coalition is unfounded and unjustified. We did not picket Labour Party offices, we have unequivocally condemned the terrible massacre in Paris, and we do not take a view on who should hold which office in the Labour Party.
We do note, however, that unlike Mr Hunt we take the same view of the Syrian War as the Leader of the Labour Party and the great majority of Labour MPs and members. We look forward to celebrating that fact with Jeremy this week.
Mr Hunt has been wrong about all the wars Britain has fought this century. He is entitled to his errors, but Stop the War and others are entitled to peacefully protest against them, and we shall continue to do so.See also:
