Nick supports Hastings Against War Gaza Vigil

January 5, 2009

nick-supports-haw-gaza-vigilLib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, Nick Perry, attended the vigil organised by local group Hastings Against War on Saturday in Hastings town centre.

After the event Nick said, “Hastings Against War is absolutely right to want to show solidarity with the innocent civilians that are suffering in Gaza at this time.

“As a nation, we must make our protest against the disproportionate actions of Israel in due humility. It is the shaming truth that our international reputation has been done untold damage by the foreign policy record of the current Government.”

Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg MP is calling for the European Union to flex its economic muscles in order to achieve a ceasefire. He said,

“With the US Administration hobbled by the transition between Presidents, it is time for the EU to act. The EU has enormous potential leverage in the Middle East as the major donor of aid to the Palestinian community and the main market for Israeli exports…”

“EU Foreign Ministers must immediately suspend the proposed new agreement with Israel. The deal cannot proceed until there is a transformation of the conditions on the ground in Gaza.”
