Video: Lowkey at London demo: “our taxes were in those bullets”

2 June 2010

“We as British citizens were not there this morning physically, but we were there through our taxes. Our taxes were in the bullets that were fired into our friends and our brothers and our sisters. And we are sick of it. Our taxes were there; our Balfour Declaration was there – we are sick of it!!

“Something I would like to direct to that sell-out Nick Clegg. Before he became the deputy prime minister, this man was calling for an arms embargo on Israel. Where is your arms embargo now?

“It’s simple: when they drop white phosphorous bombs on Gaza, they drop white phosphorous bombs on us. When human beings are being born with deformities in Gaza, that is our children that are being born with deformities. We must express our solidarity with those people, because they are us and we are them.

“On this subject, there is only one line of division; only one! It’s not a line of division between muslims and jews; it’s not a line of division between Arabs and jews; it is a line of division between those who stand for the equality of all and those who stand for the supremacy of some – and that government stands for the supremacy of some! No more!”
