This statement came in light of Netanyahu’s determination to unilaterally annex 30% of the occupied West Bank.
Margaret’s honorable position towards the Palestinian cause prompted a group of Pro-Palestine activists from “Sun Bird Palestine” to praise her.
FROM OUR BELOVED PALESTINE, Thanks a million, We call on the British government to take strict steps towards Israel's plans to annex the lands and towards the boycott of Israel and its products#FreePalestine

The Apartheid State of Israel,was created by Brittain, without it's, planing , help and support, the Zionist entity, would've never been created and survived . If Brittain conscious, intends to wake up, it's required to do more than this, the least to recognize Palestine , #BDS

The British government should ban goods from the illegal settlements in the West Bank. The issue of labelling remains to be resolved, but this move would send out a clear message that such a blatant breach of international law is not without consequence.
