I’m the child of Holocaust Survivors. This kind of genocidal violence in Israel must be called out for what it is. This is totally unacceptable. Occupation is a crime. Our heritage should forbid us from engaging in this horrendous violence. We must address the cycle and end it

"Overcrowding, unemployment, financial difficulties and illness of a family member were identified by young people as key factors in contributing to relationship tensions and eventual breakdown." Early intervention would help reduce homelessness.

It costs £1,000 for a child to register as a British citizen. £640 of this is Government profit. Barriers like these discourage social integration, and are unfair on young children - many of whom were born in this country.

Home Secretary just said Windrush children can become citizens if they want to be. They were citizens when we invited them 70 years ago. Their citizenship is theirs by right, and was taken away by your government, not something that your government is now choosing to grant them.

I can explain very simply, in general terms. But it's a lot harder to explain how it applies to me, and to emphasise that it is a sort of all encompassing condition that affects every part of my life and means my /entire life/ has to be worked around it.

To be clear: there is no such thing as 'one kind of Jew' or even one entity 'the Jews' until such time as there is persecution, pogroms and attempted genocide. The Mail is trying to create one OK kind of Jew by persecuting Jews. It is antisemitic Jew-baiting. Mass media.

Powerful people maintain their power through identifying members of minorities and those without power as 'not good' and hoping to find other minority people and unpowerful people to agree with those in power.
