We’re moving to Greens Engage

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:11 pm by Mira Vogel

When we first started this blog our priority was drawing attention to, and hopefully reversing, the detrimental effects on the British Green movement of the ill-principled boycott of Israel.

These days there’s more to do. There’s the boycott of Israel, which remains our policy. There’s the Green Party’s draft policy on Israel which wants to turn back the clock to 1948, the execution of which would effectively make Israel unworkable as a state for Jews. And there’s the antisemitism within the Green Party which is a familiar feature of boycott movements world wide. It has been documented here and unaddressed by a Green leadership which shares platforms with Hamas and urges us to boycott Israel.

So we’re changing our name to reflect these broadened concerns. Please remove this blog from your feed reader and subscribe instead to Greens Engage, which can be followed at http://www.greensengage.wordpress.com.

Thanks for reading.
