In Roman Road LDN: Motion calling for Gaza ceasefire ruled outside of Council remit
I was quoted in the Roman Road London online magazine because my motion on the Gaza conflict was not accepted due to safety concerns.

My quote: “My main priority is that I want everyone in Tower Hamlets to remain and feel safe in the borough and that is what my motion was directed at. It is deeply frustrating that the council officers have decided to not accept the motions on this topic which is so important for so many in Tower Hamlets.
I would have loved to have had the opportunity to pass a motion to put pressure on our national leaders to support an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. Now, we must be content to publish statements which have much less significance than an officially agreed and published motion.”
