This Saturday: No to NATO International Counter Summit

PLEASE NOTE: Registration Opens at 10am not 10.30

With Donald Trump, Boris Johnson and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan set to attend the gathering of the world's largest nuclear-armed military alliance next week, it’s vital that the peace and anti-war movements are mobilised to full capacity to oppose what John Pilger calls an 'American invention designed to impose American power on Europe'.

In advance of the protests being organised around the Queen’s reception for NATO leaders on the 3rd of December, we are hosting a counter-summit in Central London. The event will bring together anti-war voices from across Europe and beyond, to discuss NATO’s nuclear warmongering, its interventionist wars, and set out how civil society can work to abolish NATO and create a more peaceful world.

NATO is by design a powerful arm of US foreign policy, and increasingly dangerous in the hands of the reckless Donald Trump. We must take action against NATO - Join us in saying “No to NATO” on November 30th.

No to Trump - No to NATO: International Counter Summit

Sat 30 Nov | 10:00-17:30

Become a Stop the War Member

After decades of death and destruction caused by unnecessary British military interventions, we now have the opportunity to elect a Prime Minister who will take real measures to transform British foreign policy to one that is based on social justice, peace and human rights.

Stop the War has played a huge role in changing the narrative of ‘Bomb first, talk later’ and this is reflected in the Labour Party’s new manifesto that promises a sharp change in foreign policy.

This is an exciting time for us, but we still have a very long way to go. We urgently need your financial help to continue our crucial campaigning work during the election period and to strengthen the movement against wars and against NATO.

QUOTE FOR THE MONTH

PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATES INVITED TO PUBLIC ASSEMBLY

The Leadership Group of Citizens:mk has invited all prospective parliamentary candidates for MK North and South to a public assembly on Monday 2nd December at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone at 6.15pm.

Hosted by the City Church, parliamentary candidates will each be given four minutes to talk about their interests and the power they will use, if elected, to further Citizens:mk campaigns. Current Citizens:mk campaigns include Fair Work, Refugees Welcome, Fight Against Hate and Action on Climate Change.

Jonathan Wilson, Deputy Headteacher of Orchard Academy primary school, said: “Our children have been asking retailers in the shopping centre to sign up to a Refill scheme where they refill their water bottles for free. They want to reduce single-use plastic bottles and want to ask the future MPs to help them.”

Kurshida Mirza, Chair of Citizens:mk, said: “Our assemblies are grounded in listening respectfully to MK residents and power-holders alike. We are non-partisan, focused on understanding one another’s interests, developing relationships and using the power of our alliance to achieve social justice campaign goals. We look forward to welcoming MK’s parliamentary candidates and helping MK citizens get to know them.”

If you would like to attend the public assembly on Monday 2nd December, book your place here.
