Palestine Solidarity Campaign Hold Vigils of Support

Free PalestineVigils were held tonight across the country to show support for the people of Palestine at a time of crisis. Hundreds turned up from cities and towns such as Birmingham, Worcester, and Wolverhampton to show support for the Palestinian people ahead of a national demonstration in London on 19th July.

Palestine is effectively under military occupation and speakers reflected the widespread anger that governments everywhere are failing to recognize and take action to deal with Israel’s continued breaches of international law.

The horrific violence against the Palestinian people by Israel isn’t about rockets from Gaza; it’s about Israel fighting to maintain its control over Palestinian lives, and Palestinian land. It’s about Israel feeling able to commit war crimes with complete impunity.

Speakers at these meetings were quick to condemn the world’s media for colluding and broadcasting a message that Palestinian lives are worth less than Israeli lives. Reference was made to the 45 000 strong petition that was handed into the BBC Director General last weekend criticising BBC reporting and calling for fair treatment for the Palestinian people in broadcasts about the occupation.

The protestors were urged to not stand idly by and watch the continued and systematic undermining of any viable Palestinian state by the increased expansion of illegal settlements on stolen Palestinian land.

The solution is to end the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories; to end the siege on Gaza, imprisoning Palestinian people in horrific conditions. These people must be able to travel and interact freely with neighbouring states.

The only solution is a free and independent Palestine.

GMB express concern over jobs of 146,000 staff; as Walmart sell Asda to billionaire Issa brothers & a private equity company. Asda is priced at £6.8 billion, Walmart will still hold a minority stake; £4b is to be borrowed.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
