Palestine comment

Councillor Bernard Little, who was at the Sheffield demonstration today in support of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, said

“We cannot experience the unbelievable suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza and their relatives and refugees abroad. We can only offer our support to the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign in Sheffield. Israel’s continuing assault on Gaza is not only disproportionate it is also counter-productive, sowing the seeds for further conflict. Reconciliation between the people of Israel and Palestine is the only guarantee for a lasting peace. I urge everyone to come to the continuing protests in Sheffield and write to their local MP to demand urgent government action to broker a ceasefire.”
