Submitted to Labour Against the War conference
(report at LAtW conference)
We ask anti-war activists in the labour movement to consider the following action points:
1. Campaign in the affiliated unions to make union representatives on Labour's National Executive and other key bodies stand for union
policies. (At the 28 January 2003 NEC discussion on the war, every single union representative voted for the motion supporting the Government line).
2. Campaign in the CLPs and affiliated unions for no confidence in Tony Blair as leader of the Labour Party, and also for votes of no confidence in, withdrawal of union sponsorship from, and where feasible deselection of pro-war Labour MPs.
3. The establishment of an extended Labour Against The War steering committee, to include delegates from CLPs and union bodies affiliated
to LATW. This committee to plan model motions for Labour Party conference 2003 and a recall gathering to coordinate and discuss activity at Labour Party conference.
4. Set up local Labour Against The War conferences and groups.
