November marks the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. 102 years later, we examine its devastating impacts on the people of the region and the central role Britain had in the formation of Israel and in creating the foundation for all the problems we still see today. We follow Britain’s role from the Balfour up to the present day, looking at how we still facilitate and legitimise Israel’s apartheid regime, how we contribute towards Israel’s regime of oppression and violence over the Palestinian people and how we enable Israel’s colonial expansion of Palestinian lands, through the UK-Israel arms trade and the UK’s diplomatic and strategic ties with Israel. We examine how alternative governments such as a Labour intend to decolonise foreign policy.
