The horror of life in occupied Palestine was witnessed by Richard Burgon, Labour MP for Leeds East. In a recent article in The Morning Star he described the impact of Israeli settlements as "truly frightening. They appear as wealthy gated communities. And the number of them, the size of them, and their sinister strategic locations physically block off the possibility of a two-state solution."
A series of recent events in Sheffield celebrated the resilience of Palestinian women in particular. Photos are online below. Palestine Solidarity Campaigners, after a victory in persuading Veolia to withdraw from its contracts in Israel, are now fighting the move from the Government to prevent local authorities from divesting from companies linked to Israeli illegal occupation of Palestinian land. They urge supporters to take action and send a message to the government’s consultation on this issue.
