|This event marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of NATO. But it is no cause for celebration. NATO is a Cold War relic that has, paradoxically, expanded over the last 30 years. It has consistently served as an extension of US power around the world.
Theresa May is set to host a NATO summit - in London this December - with President Trump in attendance. The summit, and the protests which will accompany it, will draw attention to this institution and its role in the world. It is important we understand its history and its influence today, so that we can build opposition to war and aggression.
