Urgent Action Needed - Help End Israel's Ethnic Cleansing and Siege On Gaza

Palestine Solidarity CampaignJoinDonate
The Palestine Solidarity Campaign works for peace & justice for Palestinians, in support of human rights & against all racism
Join the lobby of Parliament and help end the crisis

Wednesday 27th November, 2-6pm, Parliament, London
The situation in Gaza is beyond desperate – the 6 year blockade of the Gaza strip is forcing Palestinians to breaking point and Israel’s incursions continue. Everyday life has  fallen by the wayside as people struggle to maintain life.
Meanwhile, Israel’s plans to ethnically cleanse the Palestinian Bedouins living in the Naqab (Negev desert) are still forging ahead.
Now more than ever we need to demonstrate to MPs that support for Palestinian human rights is at an all time high – and that Government action to end these human rights abuses is a must. Please commit today to joining the lobby of Parliament on the afternoon of Wednesday 27th November. 72 MPs have  been asked for meetings so far – the furthest being in Northern Ireland and the closest being Westminster. Email your MP today using our easy e-tool.
EU Guidelines – have you emailed your MEPs yet?
Well done to everyone who has already emailed their MEPs to ask them to support the EU guidelines against economic cooperation with Israeli settlements, due to come into force in January 2014. These guidelines 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 but over a thousand of you have already sent letters to your MEPs. This is already having a significant impact, but we need to get everyone on this email list to use it to contact their mep and get their friends to do the same. It is very important that the EU stands firm. The crucial decisions are being taken in November so this is urgent!
