Green Left conference fringe on Afghanistan

just had this from Joseph, didn't know Farid was candidate for Bethnal Green and Bow, he does some excellent work and blogs here


True costs of the Afghan War – really staggering.

It has now been confirmed that our fringe on the War in Afghanistan will be on the Thursday evening of conference – the debate on the motion will be the following day. Stop the War Coalition will have a stall at conference and will be attending our fringe. We are fortunate to have Jeremy Corbyn MP as one of our speakers at the fringe – a Labour MP who has consistently spoken out against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our other speaker will be our own Farid Bakht, who gave a short presentation on this issue to the AGM and is the Parliamentary Candidate for Bethnal Green & Bow.
