Ursula von der Leyen, resign!

In responding to the recent crisis in Israel and Palestine, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has violated the European Union’s legal framework and disregarded basic moral decency. While condemning attacks on civilians in Israel, she has supported the sealing off of civilians in Gaza from water, food and electricity and the bombing of the people of Gaza under the guise of “defence”. This unilateral action disregards international law and the democratic mandate of EU member states.
