Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow

From NEU:

Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow (13 October)
Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) have organised a demonstration in London to oppose a demo organised by the racist ‘Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance (DFLA).

SUTR will be assembling at Old Palace Yard, Westminster, at 1pm. We know that members will wish to join this demonstration and we would encourage them to do so in groups – members do need to be aware that the DFLA tactics can be, frankly, thuggish and it would be irresponsible if we did not prepare members for this.

Further information can be found here

Khan al-Ahmar is facing imminent demolition

From PSC to NEU Newham:

Dear Friend,

The Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar is now facing imminent demolition. Last week Israel perversely issued an order for the 180 residents to destroy their own homes, with a deadline that passed on Sunday.

Tension is now running extremely high as Israeli bulldozers are poised to carry out the demolitions. Worryingly, it seems that UK company JCB Limited is potentially aiding this war crime against Palestinians.
