Labour Party supports Palestinian statehood bid  

Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's shadow Foreign Minister
has written to William Hague setting out Labour's position on the Palestinian statehood bid ahead of the United Nations General Assembly:

"The case made by the Palestinians for recognition as a state is strong. This week, at the United Nations, the British Government should be willing to support the recognition of Palestinian statehood as part of continuing steps to achieve a comprehensive two state solution."

"But there also remains a heavy onus upon the British government and other members of the international community this week to work to ensure that any change in the level of Palestinian recognition is then followed by meaningful negotiations between the parties."
The Chair of Labour Friends of Palestine & the Middle East, Simon Danczuk MP welcomed the position of the Labour leadership, saying it was a step in right direction and re-confirmed the Labour Party's commitment to a viable and just two state solution in the Middle East.   For further information please click here.

For those of you in London, please do join us for the demo at Downing street to urge the Govt to support the Palestinian statehood bid.  We will be there from 5 to 7pm.  There will be a counter demonstration by the Zionist Federation so please come and show your support for Palestine.
