Pauline McNeill addresses Glasgow’s Nakba rally

Thousands of Palestinians across the Middle East held demonstrations to commemorate the 63rd anniversary of the Nakba today. They were joined in solidarity by many thousands who demonstrated in the UK.

At a rally in Glasgow marking the Nakba, LFPME’s Pauline McNeill said “public opinion was on the side of justice and Palestinians, and it was time the legitimate state of Palestine was fully recognised.”

She went on to demand the UK take “decisive action to deal with violations of international and the illegal Israeli settlements, which the international community agree are illegitimate.”  She called for the UK and Europe to take the lead on dealing with the settlements issue given the US has failed to take the action necessary in the interests of peace and justice.
