Radical unity on the menu

Issue No. 1931

ABOUT 240 people packed into the community hall of the North London Mosque in Wightman Road, Haringey, on Saturday of last week.

They were treated to a meal organised jointly by the mosque and Haringey Respect.

Abdul Ali, chair of the mosque committee, welcomed everyone who wanted to fight against injustice at home and abroad.

Respect executive member Sait Akgul described how Respect had grown out of the anti-war movement. European election candidate Gary McFarlane spoke movingly about the need for solidarity with Palestine.

The high turnout and the mood of unity were inspiring—as was the £1,600 raised for the Respect general election campaign fund.

OVER 120 people came to Swansea’s Guildhall last week to support the cause of a free Palestine. The meeting was organised by Respect.

John Rose, author of The Myths of Zionism, spoke about the roots of the decades-old oppression of the Palestinian people.

He explained the need for the millions of expelled Palestinian refugees to be allowed to return to their homeland.
