The trade-union backed Palestine Solidarity Campaign in the UK has added some new content to the front page of its website, which used to feature just the latest news from the organisation. Under the headline “About our campaign” it now says:
The Palestine Solidarity Campaign exists to build a mass solidarity movement on Palestine. It is founded on principles of justice, human rights, and opposition to all forms of racism. Any expression of racism or intolerance, or attempts to deny or minimise the Holocaust have no place in our movement. Such sentiments are abhorrent in their own right and can only detract from the building of a strong movement in support of the fundamental rights of the Palestinian people.
While this is certainly good news, it strikes us as odd. Did someone in the PSC do a bit of Holocaust-denial lately? Apparently so, judging by the wording of this. If anyone knows anything more about this, please let us know.
