Model resolution for Trade Union branches, CLP’s or other party branches


This branch notes:

– Recent Western military interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria have been disastrous, leading to the deaths of over a million people, the displacement of millions more, and increased violence at home and abroad.

-The wars pursued by our governments have been opposed by the majority of the population who want to see a change in foreign policy. 

– That the so-called special relationship has helped to tie Britain to a failed and damaging foreign policy.

This branch believes:

– That Britain needs a new, independent, foreign policy based on co-operation and diplomacy. That such a policy would end the waste of billions of pounds that would be better spent on welfare, education and the NHS.

– That arms sales and political support for despotic and aggressive regimes like Saudi Arabia must stop.

– That the anti-war movement has played an important role in creating anti-war opinion in this country and strengthening the movement is essential to achieving a change in foreign policy.

This branch resolves:

– To affiliate to Stop the War Coalition.

– To oppose future foreign military interventions by the UK government.

– To demand the cancellation of Trump’s visit.
