Nine Labour Councilors have resigned from the party in protest against Labour’s stance on the war in Gaza.
In a statement, Councillor Coyne said: “That the Labour leadership continues to issue hollow statements as we watch a genocide unfold before our eyes is, in my view, unconscionable.
“I have resigned from the party because I can no longer stand with a leadership that claims to value international law, human rights and equality, but will not condemn clear violations of these by Israel, and call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
“Self-defence does not justify crimes against humanity; no violence against civilians should be condoned.”
She confirmed she would be sitting as an independent instead.
It comes after Imogen Thomas, Edward Mundy, Paula Dunne, Duncan Hall, Dr Hosnieh Djafari-Marbini and Jabu Nala-Hartley all resigned on Friday.
Shaista Aziz and Amar Latif announced their resignations two weeks ago.
