Delegates back troops pullout
Wednesday 14 September 2011
Campaigns officer Andrew Murray told delegates at the Trades Union Congress in London that his union was pushing for immediate withdrawal from both countries.
“It is fraught with disaster and should be brought to an end now,” he said.
From British daily News Line:
Delegates voted overwhelmingly for motion 71 ‘Peace in the Middle East/South Asia’.
It calls for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, a halt to military action on Libya and endorses the call for the recognition of the state of Palestine.
Motion 71 says: ‘Congress believes the attack against Libya has been misjudged and, while holding no brief for the Gadaffi regime, believes military action should be halted immediately.’
