I would firstly like to start on a positive note by saying that I affirm my support for Will Duckworth (first preference) and Amelia Womack (second preference) in the GPEW Deputy Leadership elections. I postitvely believe Will's hard work so far as Green Party Deputy Leader and within Dudley, and Amelia' passion and inspiration to young activists, will all be useful in tandem in the Green Party, especially as the 2015 general election looms ever closer.
I also ask you, if you can, in light of the escalating situation and death toll in Gaza, to come to a protest against Israel's attacks on Gaza (especially its massacring of families and shelling of schools and hospitals, which constitutes a war crime), outside the Israeli Embassy in High Street Kensington, London, tomorrow at 5.30 pm. Further details can be found via this link: www.palestinecampaign.org. I also hope you have found and signed a petititon calling for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be charged with war crimes-by encouraging these attacks on Gaza he is clearly guilty of them, just as one of his now-deceased predecessors, Ariel Sharon, was guilty of war crimes (he was unfortunately never officially brought to justice,though) when the Israeli army under his tenure gratuitously attacked and ravaged Lebanon in the 1980s. In the meantime, continue boycotting Israeli goods to stand in solidarity with the people of Gaza.
