Block the Plans for Another Pro-War Government
« on: April 15, 2009, 10:30:14 PM »
Motion from South Tyneside Stop the War Coalition

Block the Plans for Another Pro-War Government

Recognising that another world is possible is the vision of the anti-war
movement and that present pro-war government continues to defy the will
of the British people in prolonging the occupation of Iraq, in stepping up its
occupation of Afghanistan and in continuing its policy of interference in
other sovereign states.

Recognising that the continuation of this criminal pro-war policy, which is
not in our name,  is the preoccupation of the major political parties that are
part of these present and future arrangements which are being prepared
and promoted to be put in place at the next general election.

Recognising that, with the severe economic crisis, leaving in place such
pro-war arrangements  is extremely dangerous for the lives and liberties of
the people of Britain and the world.  That young people will increasingly be
used as cannon fodder for wars of aggression and occupation, to defend
the privileged positions of global monopolies and "British interests" and
that this will lead the world into an even more dangerous situation.

Recognising that the movement for change must rely first and foremost on
its own strength, organisation and sense of justice.

We resolve that the anti-war movement makes preparations to block these
plans of present and future pro-war government so as to bring about an
anti-war government.

We resolve that the movement should encourage the standing of anti-war
candidates in workplaces, communities, and all spheres of society, and
make preparations for the people to support such candidates.

Also, we resolve that the anti-war movement continues to work to form an
anti-war block with small parties and organisations that wish to take a stand
in their communities for an anti-war government so that every candidate is
speaking out against the continued wars and occupations, against the
continued militarisation of the economy, against involvement in aggressive
military alliances such as NATO, against the stationing of British troops on
foreign soil and to take the stand for unity of the people of all nationalities
and to defend the rights of all.

End of motion
