This is urgent. We have today and tomorrow to act in a government consultation about the investment decisions of local councils.
Sounds boring? Yes, it does. But it's about the rights of local councils to make investments based on ethical considerations. The government is trying to stop local councils from boycotting Israel.
If you care about this, please follow this link and send an email to the government consultation before close of business tomorrow, Friday.
Why should you care? Here is one of so many reasons -
The Israeli government demolishes the homes of Palestinians in order to build their new settlements on occupied territory - in defiance of international law.
This is my only openly political stance on a non-political blog - my support for the rights of Palestinians, and my encouragement to you to join the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement against Israel until they start to treat Palestinians justly.
