STOP The War is to launch a new briefing analysing the past, present and likely future of NATO.

The online launch of NATO: A War Alliance will be hosted by Andrew Murray and Jenny Clegg and features chapters on Ukraine, Libya, the Cold War and the potential for the creation of an Asian NATO.

Dorset Stop The War Coalition will meet on Wednesday, July 20 to plan the next steps and an in person meeting for the near future.

A spokesperson for Dorset Stop The War said: “Boris Johnson, one of the world leaders most enthusiastically banging the drum of war, may be on his way out, but the threat to international peace still hangs in the balance.”
