Poor call by Palestine Solidarity Campaign

freethepeeps | 17.05.2003 16:08

Whilst most speakers referred to the ISM activists, and offered support, a request to speak by a newly returned ISMer who was deported this week, and had witnessed the brutal attacks on Rachel Corrie was refused.

There was a platform for Trade Unionists, politicians, unionists, religous ministers at the rally today, but the request by a newly returned ISM activist who has a shocking story to tell was refused. requests made by other ISMers to allow him to speak were also turned down.

Perhaps it is time for the PSC to review what it means by solidarity, as issuing words of support to ISM activists from the platform whilst refusing a voice to activists on the ground seems a little contradictory.
