Leeds Green Parliamentary candidates fully support Palestine

Flag of the State of Palestine

All eight of the Leeds Green Parliamentary candidates fully support the Palestine Solidarity Campaign following contact from their constituents, jointly stating:

“We urge the UK Government to uphold the principles of equality, human rights and international law in all its relations and dealings with Israel. The construction of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem is illegal and unjustifiable.

One of the first acts of the next UK Government should be the recognition of Palestine. The blockade of Gaza should be lifted without delay. Trade with Israel’s settlements on Palestinian land must cease immediately, as should the sale of settlement goods.

The EU Israel Association Agreement should be suspended until Israel meets its human rights obligations. No arms should be supplied to Israel until it complies with international law.”

Voters are still waiting for responses from other candidates in Leeds, who have ignored their potential constituents' requests to make their position clear. You can see if other candidates have responded here.
