North West London: Why does Britain back Israel? Palestine and Western Imperialism

Book on Eventbrite

Throughout Israel’s genocide against the Palestinians in Gaza, the British government has given full support to Israel. Even after the ICJ ruling calling effectively for a cessation in violence because of a plausible case of genocide, Sunak’s government’s response was to stop funding for humanitarian aid organisation UNRWA instead of ending arms sales to Israel or backing a ceasefire.

Palestine solidarity activist Shabbir Lakha will discuss why the British state is so committed to supporting Israel even as it massacres Palestinians and what this means for our movement.
