LFI parliamentary supporter Alex Davies-Jones MP

At today’s statement from the prime minister on the US-UK airstrikes against the Houthis in Yemen, following their attacks on shipping in the Red Sea, LFI parliamentary supporter Alex Davies-Jones MP reminded colleagues of the Houthis’ destructive ideology and condemned pro-Houthi chanting at protests in London at the weekend.

She said: “The Houthis are an antisemitic terrorist group that have caused havoc in Yemen over the past decade, starting a civil war that has killed more than 350,000 people. Their slogan includes the lines, “Death to America, death to Israel, a curse upon the Jews”. Will the Prime Minister join me in condemning the shameful pro-Houthi chanting that we saw at many protests in the UK over the weekend?”
