Carla Denyer, MP candidate for Bristol Central and Green Party co-leader, urges Bristol’s four Labour MP’s to join the Greens in calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Gaza conflict.
“The mass civilian suffering we have seen in Israel and Gaza has shocked the world. Over 700 civilians are being killed every day, one child every ten minutes. The dire humanitarian situation is clearly intolerable and must end.”
This week, the Green Party Leadership sent open letters to Foreign Secretary James Cleverly , and his Labour counterpart, Shadow Foreign Secretary David Lammy . The letters, signed by Green co-leaders Carla Denyer and Adrian Ramsay, deputy leader Zack Polanski and Global Solidarity spokesperson Carne Ross, urge the Conservatives and Labour to “listen to the people” and join international calls for a ceasefire in the Israel-Gaza conflict.
“We cannot hear arguments about violence now somehow preventing further violence in future without shuddering. The lives of children cannot be bartered in this way.”
