Council passes landmark motion

Amazing achievement yesterday at Sheffield council meeting through the combined pressure of wonderful work by Sheffield Greens and the relentless, continued protests, letter writing etc by Sheffielders.

The council voted almost unanimously ( only one vote against?) for an immediate ceasefire and a statement that Starmer was wrong to speak about the right of Israel to withold water, food and electricity and should retract.

They also voted to call on UK govt to cease all arms sales to Israel, and to consider joining the Coalition.

The chief exec has to send the whole motion to UK government. Let’s hope that letter is published!
