What's important is creating a movement or at least taking first steps towards such a serious campaign, however tentative and faltering those steps may be at first.
"If that doesn't count as an official PR statement, what does?" Perhaps something voted on by the membership?
But who cares anyway about 'official' statements? Why so officious? Why not just debate the issues? As it happens, whatever you think about it, HOPI supports a 'nuclear-free Middle East' and though such formulations risk being a little empty I have no problem with it. As it happens also Israel is the only country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons.
Interestingly, there's an article in today's Guardian which lends credence to the idea that Israel were seriously considering attacking Iran- an attack that at least some of the AWL would not condemn.
It seems to me more important that we take practical steps to support activists both inIran
and here fighting deportation
to Iran as well as creating a movement that relates to workers’ needs here in fighting fuel poverty, racism and all the other shit thrown at us by the system.
