Subject: RE: BS: Uk Labour Party discussion II
Labour MP John Mann, the chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Against Antisemitism, said his party should "condemn the authoritarian regime".
He said: "The government has refused to protect the Jewish community there from anti-Semitic attacks and refused to meet me and other international politicians to discuss this.
"Venezuela is a despot regime…, leaving millions living in abject poverty and on the verge of starvation."
Asked about the Labour leadership's position, Mr Mann said: "It is time to revise our understanding of Venezuela and condemn unreservedly its current slide into violence, poverty and dictatorship."
Anyone here disagree with Mann>
