Middlesbrough is with Palestine
Some 80 people attended a march in solidarity with Palestine in Middlesbrough last Saturday.
Labour MP Andy McDonald spoke, but his support for a two-state solution didn’t seem to fit with the majority of people on the march.
March organiser Shabana Kosar insisted on support for all Palestinians.
Shabana said, “If somebody attacks my house, I will not stand still, I will resist”.
High Court quashes protest injunction
A High Court judge has overturned an injunction preventing protests outside an Israeli arms factory in Shenstone, Staffordshire.
It had restricted protests within 50 metres of the UAV Engines Limited factory.
The factory is owned by the Israeli company Elbit.
But at an appeal hearing on Tuesday of last week, Judge Purle, who originally granted the injunction, repealed it.
And, in a ruling that has far-reaching consequences, she declared the injunction had been “dismissed ab initio”—as if it never existed.
