Palestine solidarity demos in the UK

Cake sale solidarity.


At the Crick institute in London some staff organised a bake a cake sale for Gaza with money raised going to MAP Medical Aid for Palestinians.

HR then got complaints that the cake sale had made them feel "unsafe"

Further sales were banned by the mge

The Director of Crick institute waded in with email to staff suggesting that any further cakes sales should be to fund a "neutral" charity.

The word Palestinian in MAP was the problem.

Same director of Crick hadn't been "neutral " on Ukraine. Holding forth with long article on the Crick website


Doesn't really suprise me. Any support for Palestinians in Gaza makes one suspect. Ukraine a different matter.

It's about whiteness as a political concept and the white privilege that stems from it. Hence, the reason why Ukraine is seen by some as a more worthy cause.

Hmmm, mysterious disappearing post. Have we had another visit from that person who likes getting banned a lot? I did spend a while today mentally drafting a response while bored at work, but if the post's vanished then I suppose there's no point.

Is he not an anti-vax crank too? :hmm:
Yep, he's fucking scum. From what I remember he never recanted his Powellite views and has repeated them in one form or another over the years. Also a wife beater and self confessed rapist. From his wiki page:

During a 1999 interview with The Sunday Times, Clapton admitted to raping and abusing her while they were married and he was a "full-blown" alcoholic who felt entitled to sex.[195]
 
Fair enough.

The Lambeth Labour Cllr who the ruling right wing Labour group suspended indefinitely for voting for Green Party motion at Lambeth Council meeting for Lambeth Council supporting a ceasefire was the only Jewish Cllr. He happen to be spokesperson for Momentum


He was the sole Cllr from Momentum

All the rest either keep their heads down or are Progress supporters. So got few months suspension. He was singled out for being on the left.

Lambeth Council fell over itself to adopt the IHRA plus examples not just for the local Labour party but for the whole of Lambeth with little consultation amongst the ethnic minority groups who make up Lambeth population.

It was merely a move to attack Corbyn

The irony that a Labour Council which adopted IHRA then in effect de selects a Jewish Cllr ( indefinite suspension means in effet he will not be reselected for seat) is lost on them

IMO the right of party and Starmer going on about rooting out anti semitism is entirely cynical. And done for factional purposes.
The Labour Party's got previous in disciplining Jewish members over accusations of anti-Semitism.

Pro-Palestine Jews: Purged by Starmer's Labour, now Voting Green

Former Labour councillor Jo Bird is standing to be an MP for the Green Party after Keir Starmer's regime pushed her out over supporting Palestine. Jo and her mum Rica were accused of anti-Semitism for criticising Israel, despite being Jewish women themselves. Declassified's John McEvoy went to Birkenhead to uncover one of the most inconvenient stories of this general election - the ex-Labour Jewish members now supporting the Greens, outraged at Starmer's treatment of Palestine activists.
