A group of health workers from South Wales came as a delegation to the conference. Shop steward Ian Thomas, who helped to organise the group, told Socialist Worker, “Our union branch unanimously backed this event.

“And by raising Stop the War in the union, we’ve made the union more relevant.”

Nursing assistant Davide said, “It’s important to get everyone together to hear different opinions and experiences”.

Selena, who is international officer for the Cardiff Unison union, agreed, “Last year we sent two delegates to this conference. This time there are five.”

Gareth, who had not been to a Stop the War event before, said, “I’ve come to educate myself about the issues.”
