THE Communist Party warned of a “rapidly escalating danger of war” at its political committee this week.
Chair Liz Payne demanded a large “red bloc” at June 4’s London demonstration against US President Donald Trump’s state visit in protest at Washington’s threats to attack Venezuela and Iran.
“The US military’s build-up in the Persian Gulf and on Venezuela’s borders has intensified alongside sanctions designed to promote internal misery, subversion and rebellion,” she said.
“Make no mistake, British imperialism is fully complicit in these preparations for war following US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent visit to London and to Nato and EU officials in Brussels.”
She urged the Labour Party to develop an independent foreign and defence policy free from Nato and EU obligations to increase military spending as a subordinate ally of the US.
Ms Payne, who convenes the British Peace Assembly, was reporting back from an international peace conference hosted by the World Peace Council’s Cuban affiliate.
