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.

In Scotland the aim must be to have a non-separatist majority who are willing to work together to prevent the SNP and allies having a disruptive second referendum.
No to the break up of Britain! Deal with this before we can rebuild.

#votelabour today to build a better, fairer future after the pandemic.

Difficult times for the unity of Britain. Stopping an overall majority for separatists depends on tactical voting by unionists & their large turnout; a lack of cohesion among the pro independence parties; & winning over undecided voters.
Vote for Unity.

Support for Scottish independence has dropped from a high point at the start of the year, and polls are showing a 50/50 split on the question. In this crucial election many workers intend to vote tactically to maintain the union & thwart the separatists.
