Quotes

"Please write to your MSPs and ask them to support the Scottish Parliament motion calling for sanctions on Israel. It will be noticed, and it will help secure justice for Palestine."
On July 18 an Amnesty International media release confirmed , "Israeli air strikes and shelling have caused devastating damage to water and sanitation infrastructure across the Gaza Strip. Three workers have been killed trying to make critical repairs and continuing hostilities have made such work too dangerous in many areas. On 16 July, the UN reported that at least half of Gaza’s population – some 900,000 people – were not receiving water. Damage to sewage and pumping facilities and the resulting potential for contamination of water supplies has created a public health emergency."
Committee to Protect JournalistsProtect Journalists Africa Program Coordinator Sue Valentine called the ruling, "an indictment of the thin-skinned Swazi judiciary that serves a monarch and denies citizens the basic right of freedom of expression"
At the March 18 show, Bruce said of the new tour: "This is our rededication of our band and the job that we do. It's our commitment to serve. So it's a big, big night, and I don't know what to say except I'm real happy."
