Gaza

Douglas Alexander in Gaza this weekA big thank you to DFID minister, Mike Foster MP for coming to Hodge Hill to brief me and scores of concerned constituents about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza at a public meeting I organised, chaired by Cllr Ansar Ali Khan. You can see DFID’s daily update here. Mike was able to report on Douglas Alexander’s visit to Gaza and – the UK’s new promise of another £30 million in aid and support. But there was a lot of anger at how justice is now secured for the people of Palestine – and a strong demand to see the conduct of the conflict investigated, and prosecutions delivered where needed. My message was simple. Justice for Palestine demands that we don’t just turn our minds to the Middle East at times of crisis. This demands constant debate, focus – and action.
