Gaza: what happens here?

Gaza: what happens here?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

The aftershocks of 10/7 have brought hundreds of thousands of protesters onto Britain’s streets. They’ve jeopardised years of work by Labour’s post-Corbyn leadership to eradicate the stain of anti-semitism, brought a spike in reports of Islamophobia and left Britain’s Jewish community in fear. Police in the UK have so far walked the tightrope between free speech and hate speech but the longer the war lasts the more precarious and difficult their task will be. What is the just stance for the UK government in this war? What constructive role can it play in the region? And how can it ensure the agonies of Gaza don’t tear down the edifice of British multiculturalism?
