Star should do more for boycott

Having read the excellent article by Peter Lazenby (M Star July 8) regarding the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel, can't our newspaper play a more active part in the campaign?

We must beat Labour reformism

Was Lowry a Tory after all?

Though there has been a bit of a flurry in the capitalist media and on the internet over BBC commentator John Inverdale's remarks about Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, I am surprised that there hasn't been more of a backlash.
I would thank the editor for two great editorials in recent editions of the Star.

Why focus on LGBT?

Gerry Cohen may be drowning in alphabet soup (M Star July 4) but in his letter he offers only one example, being that in your June 27 edition you used the LGBT abbreviation without explaining what it stands for.

MPs won't find any sympathy here

The fuss around the news that MPs could be in line for a 10 per cent rise after the next election is hardly surprising in view of the support most of them have given to austerity measures, job losses and real-wage deductions imposed on working people.
I was happy to see the coverage of Cameron's visit to Kazakhstan (M Star July 1) was balanced with appropriate criticism of Nur Otan's violations of trade union rights and democratic freedoms.

Time to take fracking seriously

We are concerned about the recent media representation of fracking - the unconventional, unregulated drilling method of gas extraction from Shale rock where millions of litres of pressurised water, sand and toxic chemicals are used to fracture the rock to release the gas.

Stephen Nolan's graphic exposition of the consequences for working people of their countries' subjection to the EU capital, labour, goods and services "four freedoms" diktats was well put (M Star July 2).

Unions aid democracy

Amid the media stories about Unite and Labour candidates and funding we should recall that the trade unions are the biggest civil institution in British society by some distance.
Steve Schofield writes - correctly, in my view - "The stakes now are too high, the accumulation of power even greater and the threat to democracy so acute that we cannot accept anything other than root-and-branch reform" (M Star July 3).
Stephen Nolan (The left needs to ask why the right is rising, July 2) is right to call for strong mobilisation against populist right-wing forces.
