Jenny Tonge delivers a clear message on Israel's apartheid state.

Despite Israel lobby’s efforts, Tonge delivers clear message

Despite an extensive campaign of intimidation, abuse and vitriol by the pro Israel lobby, Hastings Palestine Solidarity Campaign succeeded in holding its planned talk by Jenny Tonge on Israel’s apartheid state – a victory, as HPSC says, for freedom of speech. The group’s Laurie Holden reports on the meeting, and describes the strenuous efforts which preceded it to overcome the attempts to disrupt it by the faceless defenders of an unacceptable Israel.

Israel lobby launches malicious attack on Hastings PSC event
