The Trump Presidency has overseen a worrying rise in US interventions in Latin America, with the blockade of Cuba being tightened, sanctions threatened on Nicaragua, and Trump pushing for military intervention in Venezuela. But the resurgent right-wing in Latin America is facing resistance, with the Left winning the Mexican election, and trade unionists and popular movements mobilising to defend social progress across the region. Come along to hear eyewitness accounts and get involved in standing up to Trump’s interventions in Latin America. Click here to register.

Israeli bulldozers have stormed the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar accompanied by soldiers and police. Activists protesting against the imminent demolition of the community were violently removed, and several arrested.
Meanwhile, a nearby illegal Israeli settlement flooded Khan al-Ahmar with waste water and sewage in an attempt to drive out residents and activists. This has not worked, and the week has seen global condemnation of Israel’s actions – including from UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
Maintaining international pressure is essential, but needs support from people like you. We need to make sure that Theresa May’s condemnation of Israel is translated into Government action. You can help by writing to the UK Foreign Office and First Ministers of Scotland and Wales
