|Meeting with Kavla Oved workers' rights group|
It was will worth noting that the Lord and the Tories left before the briefing meeting finished. Obviously keen to get to Gaza.
Sadly the situation in Gaza shows no sign of improvement. Shame on the UN as a body which is suppose to provide humanitarian assistance, WHEN?
At this point their focus is protecting workers in farming and horticultural employment and the majority are employed by Israeli settlers who have taken their land with the help of the Israeli government.
|At the home of trade unionists|
Kavla Oved seek the assistance of all UK trade unions in this fight which I will expand on when I return to Scotland and the UK.
Finally today on our return to Jerusalem we met with the Israeli committee against house demolition (ICAHD), represented by Jeff Halper, author and an active voice for civil rights in Palestine.
|Bedouin people are also under threat |
of forced removal by Israeli government
In a systematic destruction of Palestinian homes and villages, the pace of these clearances has increased drastically since 1948 and to date more than 120,000 homes have been destroyed.
The UN must change their stance on Israel and Prevent further acts of blatant destruction driving Palestinian from their homes and country, Jeff stated, the Israel government don't recognise Palestinians they only see Arabs.
