Around 150 people joined the Stop the War Coalition’s annual conference in central London last Saturday.
The coalition’s convenor Lindsey German opened the conference by paying tribute to outgoing chair Jeremy Corbyn.
The right wing press claimed Corbyn stood down under pressure.
But a message to the conference said, “I want to make absolutely clear my continuing solidarity with the coalition and its work.”
The conference debated building opposition to the prospect of the West bombing Syria.
Lindsey said, “We should not allow the warmongers to use refugees’ plight to justify fresh bombing.”
