Britse vakbeweging versterkt campagne voor een vrij Palestina

TUC commits to ‘step up the campaign for a free Palestine': PSC response, 10-9-2014

 The TUC’s commitment to ‘step up the campaign for a free Palestine’, endorsed today at TUC conference, has been welcome by Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).

In a statement from its General Council, the TUC condemns the ‘collective punishment of the people of Gaza’, and describes Israel’s latest land grab in the West Bank as ‘a shocking provocation’.

The strongly worded statement, which was passed almost unanimously today, says the response of the UK government, the EU and the UN to Israel’s 2014 attack on Gaza has been ‘unacceptable’.

  • The TUC has now joined PSC, Amnesty International and other organisations in demanding an immediate end to the UK and EU’s arms trade with Israel.
  • The statement adds: ‘The TUC should, working with the relevant unions, press those companies involved in supporting Israel’s military to cease to do so.’
  • It also reiterates a previous TUC call for the suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement ‘until the rights of the Palestinians are established’. This echoes the demand made by PSC.
  • The statement commits the TUC to ‘raise the pressure on corporations complicit in arms trading, the settlements, occupation and the wall’.The TUC’s commitment to ‘step up the campaign for a free Palestine’, endorsed today at TUC conference, has been welcome by Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
