Brussels diary – 25th May

13 Jun , 2018  

• With my colleague Julie Ward, I welcomed constituents to the European Parliament and discussed youth engagement with politics.

• In the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee, I condemned the Israeli army’s despicable actions at the border with Gaza after the US embassy opening.

• I hosted an event with the British Medical Association to discuss the medical professions concerns about a badly negotiated Brexit. We sent out a powerful message that patient care must not be negatively affected by ideological decisions. I support the BMA’s call for clarity for the healthcare staff working in the UK currently who might leave because of Brexit.

Labour MEPs call for action on Kashmir

8 Jun , 2018  

Labour MEPs today called for action on Kashmir, in dialogue with human rights activists at the European Parliament. Mr Wajid Khan MEP chaired the event and he was honoured to hear the voices of Kashmiri women speaking up about human rights abuses.

The chief guest, Shamim Shawl, spoke of her direct experience of violence in the Jammu and Kashmir region. Undeterred by her experiences, she speaks out on behalf of Kashmiri women and calls for their calls to be listened to: "Kashmiris are not voiceless they are simply not heard".

In a frank discussion the various MEPs gave their opinions.
