Members of the Aylesbury Constituency Labour Party are deeply saddened to see the humanitarian crises in Gaza deepening and call for an immediate ceasefire and allow humanitarian corridors to be opened up to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people.

The brutal terrorist attack at the hands of Hamas on Israelis on 7th October was horrific and we respect the right of Israel to defend itself from such atrocities within the parameters defined by International Law.  We condemn the murder of innocent Israeli citizens by Hamas and call for the immediate release of all hostages taken.

The Palestinian people are not Hamas and cannot be held responsible for the actions of a recognised minority terrorist group. Enough is enough.

 Humanitarian aid including access to water, medicines, fuel, food and shelter must be provided to the Palestinians as a matter of the utmost urgency.  To facilitate this, we call for the UK government and its international partners to call for an immediate ceasefire.

We are members of the Labour Party because we share a commitment to the values of social justice, human rights and equality – all lives are of equal value whether they are those of Israeli citizens or the Palestinians of Gaza and the West Bank.  We recognise that a political solution is required, and advocate for the creation of two states living in peace side by side respecting each other’s right to exist as the only answer to the current crises.  A ceasefire is required to allow the international community to begin to build the path to peace and the two-state solution that is needed.  We stand with all communities of Aylesbury – a town which is tolerant and respectful to everyone.
