Up Front: Resisting the Far Right

September 2018

In this special edition of Up Front we highlight how we are resisting far right extremism: a politics that is turning back the clock to the darkest moments in recent history, and creating fertile ground for rising inequality, climate crisis, racist scapegoating and attacks on our human rights. That’s why we helped co-found the Stop Trump Coalition, and brought together thousands of people from all walks of life.

Leaflet: the Palestinian right of return

The right of return is a core demand of the Palestinian struggle for justice. The right of return for refugees is a universal right, enshrined in international law through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention. UN resolution 194 affirms that Palestinians have a right of return to their homes.

This short leaflet explains what we mean when we talk about the Palestinian right of return.

Briefing: UK-Israel trade

July 2018

The UK Government has identified Israel as a priority trading partner with which it will negotiate a bilateral trade agreement post-Brexit, replicating its current trade arrangement under the EU-Israel Association Agreement. The UK Foreign Office has expressed concern year on year over Israel’s violations of international law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention. These serial violations raise serious questions about the legality of current trade with Israel, especially the arms trade, and must not be left out of discussions on trade moving forward.
