Suggested Contemporary Motions for Labour Party Conference

Labour's Future

Suggested Contemporary Motions for Labour Party Conference This year, Labour’s national policy forum did not agree to a single minority report. Nor did any policy papers include even a single option for decision by conference. This means that meaningful policy debates at this year’s conference, the last before the general election, can only happen on the basis of contemporary and emergency motions. The deadline for receipt of contemporary motions is Thursday 11 September at 12 noon. The title has a maximum of 10 words and the motion a maximum of 250 words. [continue...]

Scottish referendum: time running out for ‘Yes’

Scottish referendum: time running out for ‘Yes’ By Ewan Gibbs Political life in Scotland has been dominated by September’s independence referendum since the moves towards it began about two and a half years ago, and the ‘Yes Scotland’ and ‘Better Together’ ‘No’ campaigns were launched in the summer of 2012. Since then it’s at times often felt as though things were more or less on hold in the build-up to the vote and almost every major political issue is viewed and discussed through the prism of independence. This has intensified over recent months as the official campaigning period began and the first of a series of televised debates took place. [continue...]

From one Israeli pogrom to another

International solidarity

From one Israeli pogrom to another By Martin Wicks Israel is in trouble. Not because of the threat from Hamas rockets but because its barbaric assault on Gaza is so patently out of all proportion to the threat they face that even their traditional supporters are raising questions about their strategy. It’s traditional supporters admit as much. Even Tory MPs are criticising the UK government.
The Economist has written an editorial entitled “winning the battle, but losing the war” (the war, that is, for world opinion), subtitled “For all its military might, Israel faces a grim future unless it can secure peace”. Yet the Israeli regime does not want a negotiated peace. [continue...]

Gaza – Stop the bombing:

International solidarity

Gaza – Stop the bombing:
Statement by the EC of the LRC As Israeli bombs rain down on Gaza yet again, indiscriminately mowing down civilians, and a land invasion and naval bombardment gets underway, public opinion around the world is outraged. Yet western governments call at best for restraint and urge Palestinian support for a ceasefire on Israel’s terms. Such a ceasefire would entail an eighth year of Israeli blockade, the continued confinement of Gazans to their open prison and the ongoing denial of their access to markets, education and employment. This is the ‘peace’ that Israeli bombs and the western powers that support them seek to impose on the Palestinian people. [continue...]
