Demands for Gaza projected onto Parliament

On Friday 1 August 2014Palestine Solidarity Campaign projected the flag of Palestine onto the Houses of Parliament. The projected image called for an end to the massacre in Gaza, and a call for sanctions against Israel.
There was a ceasefire brokered by the USA and the UN due to start at 8am today but since then  Israel Forces have killed at least 35 people.
Hugh Lanning, Chair of Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said:
“It is an outrage that the British Government is standing by whilst Israel slaughters Palestinians. The Prime Minister, David Cameron has failed to listen to the voices of hundreds and thousands of British people who have taken to the streets. He has failed to stand up for an occupied people being ruthlessly murdered by an occupying power.
The Prime Minister has weakly accepted the US’ political position, which is totally out-of-step with the mood of this country. It is time for firm action consistent with international law."
David Cameron must:
  • Demand an end the massacre in Gaza
  • Implement an immediate and total arms embargo on Israel
  • Employ sanctions now until Israel ends its illegal occupation
Join our call for action! Sign our open letter to David Cameron today, and ask your friends to sign it too. Let’s demonstrate to David Cameron how angry people are that this injustice is allowed to continue. The Government must not delay in responding to the moral and public demands it faces.”
