Many people in Britain agree that the suffering and injustice being inflicted on the Palestinian people is deeply wrong, yet the political elite follows a US policy that colludes in Israel’s breaches of international law. Clare Short will share her experience of 23 years in the House of Commons, and six years in the Cabinet, to help us improve our lobbying effectiveness.
Clare Short was MP for Birmingham Ladywood from 1983 until she stood down before this year’s election. She was secretary of state for international development from 1997, but resigned from the Blair Government over the 2003 invasion of Iraq. She has continued to campaign on Palestine and the wider Middle East, international development and sustainability.
