Invitation: LCID and Open Labour Pamphlet Launch ‘A progressive foreign policy for new times’

LCID is pleased to be supporting Open Labour to launch a new pamphlet written by Dr Harry Pitts and Professor Paul Thompson which argues that Labour should put forward a new foreign policy inspired by two great figures of our movement – Robin Cook and Jo Cox. 

Joining us for the launch will be Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy, and Oscar nominated and Emmy and BAFTA award winning journalist Waad Al-Kateab. Waad made the incredible documentary For Sama, is a board member of the Syrian British Council and made the BBC list of 100 women and Time magazine ‘s 100 Most Influential People in 2020.

It will be place next Thursday 10th December at 7pmPlease register here to get the Zoom link
