Up Front: Resisting the Far Right

September 2018

In this special edition of Up Front we highlight how we are resisting far right extremism: a politics that is turning back the clock to the darkest moments in recent history, and creating fertile ground for rising inequality, climate crisis, racist scapegoating and attacks on our human rights. That’s why we helped co-found the Stop Trump Coalition, and brought together thousands of people from all walks of life.

Leaflet: the Palestinian right of return

August 2018

The right of return is a core demand of the Palestinian struggle for justice. The right of return for refugees is a universal right, enshrined in international law through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention. UN resolution 194 affirms that Palestinians have a right of return to their homes.

This short leaflet explains what we mean when we talk about the Palestinian right of return.

Liam Fox MP, the Secretary of State for International Trade, made a statement to the house on Monday 16 July, on a transparent and inclusive future trade policy. The fact that he made such a statement is welcome and overdue, however his proposals largely leave the status quo unchanged. Powers currently being held by European institutions will be returned to the UK after leaving, but rather than transferring them to Parliament they are being retained by the executive, creating a democratic deficit.
