ACTION: Call on the Labour Party to Speak Out on Palestine
We the undersigned, as Labour members and supporters, call on the Labour Party to urgently and unequivocally condemn the violence against and the displacement of Palestinian civilians by Israeli forces.
In the last month the world has seen a series of serious escalations across the occupied Palestinian territories. This has included demonstrations by extremist far-right groups in Jerusalem chanting “death to Arabs”, forced evictions and displacement of residents in the occupied neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah, and violent attacks by Israeli forces on Al-Aqsa mosque on the final Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.
We therefore call on Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer MP, Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy and other members of the Labour Party leadership to urgently speak out against this violent escalation by Israeli forces, stand up for the inalienable human rights of Palestinians, and actively support the enforcement of international law.
The 2021 local elections have shown us that communities across Britain desperately need the Labour Party to set out its vision for the UK and the world. We need to stand up for peace and justice. That must include standing with Palestinian communities in this most urgent moment.
