Recent weeks have seen significant reprisals in the Israel-Palestine conflict. The images on our television screens have been truly harrowing. Most of all, it has become clear to many Britons and Europeans that this is not a conflict of equal margins and standing, it is a battle of disproportions. There is no doubt that Hamas (the governing force in Gaza) is an undemocratic and oppressive organisation, however the actions of the Israeli forces and government in recent weeks have been disproportionate to the threat that faces them. Everyday, the children of Gaza witness buildings collapsing, people being mutilated and even death. It is time that the United Kingdom suspended its arms exports to Israel.

Britain Should Stop Selling Arms to Israel

"Strong communities are vital so that we can lead happier, healthier, wealthier and fulfilled lives. Only by working with the whole city, can we tackle the big challenges, like transport, homelessness, education, elderly and special needs care, and climate change. Together, we can build a future for Bristol that is culturally, financially and environmentally sustainable." - Mary Page, Bristol Liberal Democrats Mayoral Candidate
