Hundreds of school students – plus college and university students – walked out on strike in Bristol on November 3 for Palestine, and in particular to show solidarity with children in Gaza and express their horror and disgust at the frightening numbers of murders of children.

Children from the age of 18 down to just 4 took the microphone to speak eloquently and powerfully about the rapidly worsening situation in both Gaza and the West Bank, with a number of Palestinian students taking the chance to speak out.

They delivered a petition to the Town Hall, demanding that the Labour Mayor (Marvin Rees) annd the Bristol Labour MPs (Kerry McCarthy, Darren Jones, Karin Smyth and Thangam Debbonaire) call for a ceasefire – something that disgracefully, none of them have done.

The students have now decided to strike every Friday until this appalling genocide and ethnic cleansing is stopped. It’s a brilliant move – and now every school in the UK should join them.
