To: Incoming Labour Government
From: Stop the War Coalition

Keir Starmer’s Labour promises to be a government of more war and militarism.

He has backed every Tory foreign policy position possible: the enabling of genocide in Gaza, fuelling the NATO proxy war in Ukraine and unlawful bombing raids on Yemen. Labour has also committed to a 2.5% increase in defence spending, an “unshakeable commitment to NATO” and nuclear weapons.

We need a foreign and defence policy based on peace and diplomacy, not war and destruction. We demand that the British government breaks with US war policy and that it develops an independent, peaceful approach to international affairs.
