The picket is now facing opposition from Zionists and BNP members who for two weeks in a row have set up a stall supporting Israel. They fly the Union Jack alongside the Israeli flag and hand out leaflets defending Israeli supremacy in the Middle East.

The (very) long awaited issue 10 of radical ecological journal Do or Die is out now.

Do or Die is an occasional journal crammed with reports and analysis from the world-wide ecological frontlines.
