Big National Lobby – are you part of it?
lobby of Parliament
Wednesday 27th November, 2-6pm, Parliament, London
On Wednesday 27th November hundreds of supporters of Palestine will gather together in Parliament to call on MPs to take action for Palestinian human rights and against ethnic cleansing and racism. Make sure you are part of it!
We will be campaigning for Government and Parliament to apply the principles of equality, human rights and international law when it comes to Israel.
We will be calling for:
  • MPs to challenge the ethnic cleansing of 40,000 Palestinian Bedouin from the Naqab(also known as the Negev)
  • A ban on settlement goods
  • Respect for Palestinian prisoners’ rights and a end of the abuse of children in Israeli military custody
  • Urgent action to end the crisis in Gaza, and a complete end to the siege
So far, 41 MPs have been asked for meetings in Parliament from as far afield as Northern Ireland! Make sure your MP is one of them. At you will find all the information you need to get involved.

EU Guidelines – have you emailed your MEPs yet?
Last week we asked you to email your MEPS to support the EU guidelines, due to come into force in January 2014, which aim to stop Israeli projects in illegal West Bank settlements from being granted EU research funds, awards, prizes or loans. MEPs are under incredible pressure from the US Secretary of State and other friends of Israel to reverse these plans. Thousands of letters have already been sent. Thank you. But if you haven’t yet emailed your MEPs please do so today. If you have, then please forward to your family & friends. It is very important that the EU stands firm.

Public consultation: Media Ownership and Plurality
Christmas card 
Do you think the BBC’s monopoly on news coverage should be challenged?
Should an organisation which is unable to report clearly, fairly and impartially on Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land enjoy a monopoly which sees its news output reaching 81% of the UK each week?
Take part in the government’s public consultation on media plurality and have your say.
