Peter, though, did put a stress on labour internationalism of which he saw that the solidarity between unions is only one and a small part in the broad picture. Coming from a Jewish family himslef he, has been openly critical of Zionism and Israel’s ever-expanding a barbaric occupation on Palestinian…Continue

Below is an appeal from Eric Lee to support the ITUC position on Gaza. As I may have elsewhere said, I do NOT support this appeal because:
1) It has nothing in it that either draws on or addresses labour or union theory or strategy;
2) It simply here echoes the position of an inter-state organisation (here echoing general ITUC subordination to the ILO);
3) The weakness and tardiness of any criticism or even distancing from the…Continue

Apart from the welcome Israeli and International union protests against Israel's third war in five years against the people of Gaza, I note that in a UK parliamentary debate on the current outrage not only Labour (and at least one Jewish) MP have condemned this, but both Liberal and Conservative ones were doing so.
In so far as this site's creator, Eric Lee, has 1) in the past identified himself with the Zionist state and even some of its most…Continue

New Delhi, Thursday 17th July 2014 - The Government of India must stand up for
Palestine: The murderous attack of Israel on Gaza that began on 3 July is like all Israel’s
attacks on Palestine without justification and lacking in proportion. There is no evidence that
the three Israeli teenagers who went missing on 12 June and whose bodies were found on 30
June were killed by Hamas. In the 18 intervening days the Israel Security Agency…
