Hugh Lanning, PSC Chair:

I had the privilege of sharing the platform with Jo Cox on a number of occasions. She was a passionate advocate for Palestine – speaking up on child prisoners, the siege of Gaza, the right to boycott and many other issues.

Her murder is a tragic loss – most to her friends and family, but also to the causes she so brilliantly supported. She was a bright star who will be much missed.
