    In response to Netanyahu’s announcement, Jabareen tweeted , “It’s fitting for US President Trump to have a settlement named after him that’s illegal and contravenes international law. Trump’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Heights is spitting in the world’s face. Transferring Israeli citizens to the Golan is a war crime under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. A war crime named after Trump.”

  • Connolly Youth Movement statement on the divorce referendum

    We, the Connolly Youth Movement support the YES vote in the upcoming divorce referendum on Friday the 24th of May 2019,  currently, the law according to the constitution of the twenty six mandates that a married couple must be separated for four of the last five years to be granted a divorce, if the yes vote were to win, the oireachtas will then have the power to shorten this period to two years, while not perfect this is a far more preferable state of affairs, we believe this because we view it as an unnecessary invasion of privacy to have to prove that you have been separated for four of the last five years. This makes mutual divorces unnecessarily complex and poses many problems for someone facing domestic abuse from their spouse.

  • Palestinian FM: US is Proposing a Plan of Surrender, Not a Peace Deal

    Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki called the US-proposed “peace plan” (aka Donald Trump’s “Deal of the Century”) a Palestinian surrender, as the US Special Envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, lashed out at the United Nation’s “anti-Israel bias” while urging support for the Trump administration’s “vision,” on Thursday, May 9

    Greenblatt, who was speaking before a meeting of the UN Security Council initiated by temporary member states Indonesia, Kuwait, and South Africa said it was “surprising and unfair” that the council meeting was organized to condemn Israel’s behavior when the latter “was not even invited to speak at this session.” He called the council’s “obsessive” focus on Israeli settlements a “farce,” saying that the purportedly illegal Israeli settlements are not keeping Israelis and the Palestinians from negotiating peace.

  • Respect the vote, respect the people

    By Tony Conway Convenor of ARAF – the CP anti racist and anti fascist commission

    The decision of the British People to leave the EU in 2016 was a shock to the ruling class as represented by big business, the senior civil service, government and banking. The Government of the day had the support of the majority of trade unions, who publicly spoke up for Remain, in spite of the views of many of their members. Since that majority decision, certain sections of the left have set about vilifying those who voted leave. Working class voters have been called racist, stupid or selfish. Others seek to split the population into convenient stereotypes. They have argued the people got it wrong and should be given a chance to change their mind.
