The NASUWT deplores the escalating violence and unfolding humanitarian crisis in Gaza and Israel.
The NASUWT supports the call by the United Nations for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire. We strongly urge the UK Government and the wider international community to make all efforts to ensure that international law is upheld and all civilians are protected.
The NASUWT condemns the brutal attacks and murder of Israeli civilians by Hamas. We call for the immediate, unconditional release of all hostages.
We are seriously concerned by the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Gaza, which has left civilians and children without access to food, water, electricity and fuel supplies. The NASUWT calls on the UK government and international community to demand safe and immediate access to humanitarian aid.
The NASUWT stands in solidarity with Israelis and Palestinians affected by this appalling violence and our condolences to those who have lost family and friends.
We are deeply concerned by the devastating impact on children caused by the escalation of violence. We assert the right of every child to live in safety and security, free from violence and hatred.
The NASUWT stands in solidarity with the children, teachers and other educators in Israel and Palestine and all those who are committed to education for peace.
We deplore the escalation in antisemitism and anti-Muslim racism and oppose those who are using these events to stir up division in the UK. The NASUWT stands in solidarity with all working people, their friends, families and communities and opposes any attempt to divide us.
We stand together with the international community in calling for a just peace in Israel and Palestine, an end to the military occupation of Palestinian territory, and respect for all Palestinian rights including the right to self-determination.
The Union remains committed to working with our colleagues in the trade union movement in Israel, Palestine, the UK and internationally to resolve these issues.
The NASUWT is committed to working with, and through, Education International, the TUC, STUC, ICTU and the Wales TUC in calling for peace and as such support the following statements by the trade union confederations of which the NASUWT is a member:
