An Internationalist Labour Party?
New Internationalist

Add to calendar

Corbyn’s foreign policy is a huge source of his support, especially among younger members who grew up in the ‘war on terror’. However, it’s also his greatest departure from the consensus – not simply within the British state but also the Labour Party, which has often been supportive of destructive foreign military interventions. How can we make the party into a genuinely internationalist organisation? Come and discuss the history of Labour’s relationship to empire and interventionism and hear concrete proposals for how Labour deals with colonial injustices and supports oppressed people around the world.
