We attended an event with Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry on 21 April hosted by Afzal Khan's campaign for MP for Gorton. In the Q&A session, we asked Emily whether Labour would continue to support aid drops on besieged areas as it called for on 13 December 2016 in the context of the East Aleppo siege.
Following complaints and call-ins to the National Liberal Club for their hosting of the pro-Assad European Centre for the Study of Extremism for a conference on 5-6 April, the Club issued an apology and said that it regretted hosting such a conference.
We held an event at our centre on 19 April with Gorton Labour candidate for MP Afzal Khan. Afzal discussed the importance of being engaged in the political process and of making our voices heard. He also took questions from the audience on Syria and Libya, and stressed his long-standing opposition to the Assad regime.
