A public meeting organised by Newcastle Stop the War Coalition and the Power/Space/Politics Geography research group, Newcastle Universityhttp://www.stopwar.org.uk/index.php/events/local-stop-the-war-events/3169-14-nov-newcastle-what-sort-of-foreign-policy-does-the-uk-need-today

Theresa May is backing Donald Trump's aggressive foreign policy, supporting his escalation of the war in Afghanistan. The British government also continues to arm and otherwise support Saudi Arabia as they bomb thousands of Yemenis, helping to create the world's biggest humanitarian crisis. Meanwhile, Britain champions NATO's expansion into Eastern Europe, widening the ongoing rift with Russia. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has announced that Britain will be sending Royal Marines to Ukraine in addition to increasing the presence of Royal Navy patrols in the Black Sea in 2019.

Jeremy Corbyn stands for a different foreign policy, marked by opposition to foreign interventions and support for Palestine. We're closer than we've ever been to an anti-war government – one that puts welfare and homes before mindless military interventions. This will only happen with the widest possible campaign.

Lindsey German, national convenor Stop the War
Nick Megoran, Newcastle University's Power/Space/Politics research group

Chair - Craig Jones, lecturer in human geography, Newcastle University
