For the last 25 years, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has been a consistent supporter and advocate of the Palestinian people’s fight for self determination.
In 2011, the FBU undertook a campaign to provide equipment, kit and 2 fire engines to Palestinian firefighters in Nablus. The full story of the FBU’s journey to Nablus is detailed in a report given to MSPs during their exhibition at the Scottish Parliament.
FBU Regional Organiser, Jim Malone, gave a talk on the campaign and their journey to deliver the equipment at a public meeting in Dundee in February. A video of Jim’s talk is available at Robert Stewart’s blog.
