    A children’s educational movement has voted to boycott Israel at their annual gathering in Sussex.

    The Morning Star reported that the Woodcraft Folk, which runs weekly sessions for children including singing, dancing, craft and eco-projects, voted for the boycott at their conference in Ashdown Forest, west Sussex.

    The emergency motion was proposed by international secretary Paul Bemrose, who said it had been prompted by the deaths of nine Turkish activists on the Gaza flotilla.

    A majority of the 150 delegates at the conference backed a complete boycott until the Gaza blockade is lifted.

    Other motions at the conference included a debate on whether to keep green as the movement’s official colour.
