Live Decisions of Congress 2024

Motion 119


“That this Congress notes that the US has been developing a massive military build-up in the Pacific amidst constant talk of war with China.

“Congress notes that increasing military activity in disputed waters in the South and East China Seas and around Taiwan runs a high risk of accidental collision escalating rapidly into a catastrophic war.

“Congress notes that these increasing tensions jeopardise international cooperation essential to address the mounting climate crisis.

“Congress agrees to support work in the following areas:

  • The raising of public awareness on the dangers of Pacific militarisation and Britain’s part in this; and
  • The developing of an understanding within the Trade Union movement of the dangers of military confrontation with China.”
