I currently work in a voluntary capacity as an advocate supporting individuals against injustice. Formerly a councillor on Birmingham City Council i left the Labour Party and joined the Socialist Labour Party led by Arthur Scargill who fought against Thatcher's attack on working people. I have three beautiful grandchildren and I want to see them grow up in an unpolluted world where human values prevail over greed and injustice.

We Are Not Free Until Vanunu Is Free

When I visited Palestine/Israel in 2004 Mordechai Vanunu was still in jail. No one knew what was happening to him there. He was in solitary confinement for much of the 18 years there, and now more than 10 years later he is still held against his will in Israel, which is contrary to the UN Human Rights Charter. Now an Israeli newspaper, who lied about him, is demanding settlement of the libel case he lost - the state of Israeli justice is totally undependable as we have seen in many other cases. He sacrificed much so that we should all know the truth about Israel's secret nuclear, powerful and extremely dangerous weapons of mass destruction. He deserves our thanks. Please help with a donation if you can. Please share widely in any case. Thank you!
