We at BEATS stand in solidarity with the victims of the Palestine/Israel conflict. We mourn alongside the families and innocent lives lost that have being cruelly taken away for decades due to the political violence.
BEATS reject the term ‘Hamas supporters’ which has been coined by BBC news and other media outlets to describe protestors in the Pro Palestinian marches speaking against the Palestine-Israel war. We find this is a damaging and irresponsible tactic against those who march in support of ethnic minorities and it encourages and escalates racism.
Our thoughts and compassion are with the victims of this horrific war. #ceasefirenow
