8Notice of motion by Councillor Danny Alderslowe:-

"Council is extremely concerned and saddened, as are many Glasgow residents, at the tragic loss of life in Gaza due to military action. The military action, following two years of economic and total blockade, has created a humanitarian disaster in the area.

Council condemn the loss of civilian life and the destruction of homes, mosques, schools and infrastructure, including United Nations facilities, by Israel in Gaza.

Council supports:

" the practical support by the DEC, Red Cross/Red Crescent, Interpal, Islamic Relief and others to assist the people of Gaza;
" the efforts of our Glasgow MPs and MSPs to persuade the Government to do everything possible to press for an immediate and total ceasefire, to challenge the blockade of Gaza and help to bring peace to the people of Palestine;
" an immediate negotiated ceasefire;
" greater international pressure through the UN on Israel and the Palestinians to reach a political agreement;
" an end to the isolation, impoverishment and virtual imprisonment of the people of Gaza and Palestine.
