NUT conference last weekend overwhelmingly voted to affiliate to the Stop the War Coalition and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
The motion called for an end to the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. It condemned the “continuing attack on civil liberties in this country, such as the continuation of detention without trial”.
Dave Harvey, from the NUT executive, said, “We should pass this motion, and take a stand against imperialism, take a stand for peace.”
Over 200 delegates attended a Stop the War Coalition fringe meeting at the conference.
