Helpers for Dundee United vs Celtic game


Can you support Palestine by helping us to leaflet the Celtic-Dundee United game in Dundee on Sunday 22 November from 11.30am–12.30pm? Meet promptly at corner of Tannadice St & North St Isla St. If you can, text or call 0795 800 2591 to confirm you can help.


Celtic are playing Israeli team Hapoel Tel Aviv in Glasgow on Wednesday, December 2nd. Kick off is 8.05. The Israeli Ambassador, Man of Blood Ron Prosor, will be there and the JNF and Zionist Federation are asking their supporters to attend to carry off the illusion that Israel, while bulldozing Palestinian homes on a daily basis, is a normal state.

SPSC has leafleted every home game for two months, receiving a great response from fans. The STUC will now be printing 10,000 Palestinian flags for distribution to fans on Dec 2nd for a visible demonstration of solidarity with Palestine inside the stadium on that night. To prepare for this, the STUC will also be asking trade unionists and others attending the annual STUC St Andrews Day anti-racism march to leaflet Celtic Park afterwards to build support for the demonstration. The main theme will be ‘End the Siege of Gaza’.

This game will be a megaphone into Israel & Palestine; the game is being broadcast live. You leafleting on Sunday will make a difference.

    Could you please explain why you aren’t boycotting the UK and calling for an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Your own country is responsible for the deaths of far more civilians in those countries in the past 8 years than Israel is responsible for in the 60 years of its existence. How about you get your own house in order before telling others how to act. And why don’t you call for a boycott of Chinese goods and oil while you are at it considering the heinous human rights records of China and the Gulf states.

    Can you explain why your opinion should be taken as worth replying to seeing as you posted via the website of the Labour Friends of Israel? Incidently do they call for an end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, a boycott of the UK and of China?

  3. Matthew says:

    Not via the website, via the server. My point is that you are hypocritical to be calling for a boycott of Israel when you live in the UK. If you are opposed to the practices of Israel you sure as hell should be opposed to the practices of China, the Gulf states and the UK. As I said before, you should get your own house in order first.

  4. Alan G says:

    So do Labour Friends of Israel call for any of those things then?

  5. Matthew says:

    No, LFI don’t call for boycotts of anybody or an end to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. LFI campaign on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we are opposed to settlements and call for a two state solution with just compensation for Palestinian refugees.

    P.S. The Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions work with Histardut is just one example of the many good cross-border initiatives that are promoting peace and reconciliation out there, a boycott doesn’t help anybody.

    See the Wikipedia article on PGFTU.

    “In 2005, the PGFTU called for the international community to engage in a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel.”

    Nice way to check the organisation you use as the basis for your argument.

    So LFI work on a narrow policy area but this group should be criticised for not campaigning on a wide and diverse area. Not even a good troll.
