The United Campaign Against Police Violence.
In the aftermath of the death of Ian Thomlinson, just the latest in a long line of deaths attributable to British police forces;
We are focussing on a very important and alarming issue that has begun making the news with depressing regularity here in the UK: the increasing use of police violence as the State's chosen tactic, and forming part of a broader strategy, to drastically limit people's legitimate right to protest.
Why support UCAPV...
We need a campaign to raise public awareness of both individual instances of the use of excessive force or violence by the police and the very real threat current methods of increasingly non consensual policing pose to all our civil rights. The United Campaign Against Police Violence is that campaign.

*About the book*
Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide is a highly readable introduction to understanding the origins of the conflict and how apartheid applies to the situation in Palestine. Packed with information and resources, the book is rooted in the author's extensive on-the-ground experience in the region and is an indispensable guide for the Palestinian solidarity movement. Israeli Apartheid aims to inform and mobilise, and is a vital resource for anyone who wants to help work towards peace and end poverty and human rights violations in Palestine.
*About the author*
Ben White is a freelance journalist and writer specialising in Palestine/Israel. He also writes on the broader Middle East, Islam and Christianity, and the ‘war on terror'.
