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.
