Action Alert: Israeli Cricket Team on UK Tour
The Israeli cricket team are due to visit the UK this week. They are due to play several matches as part of the European second divison championship, including three matches in the greater Glasgow area. Don’t stand by and watch the Israelis play cricket in your backyard, whilst they continue to massacre hundreds of innocent Lebanese and Palestinians on a daily basis!
Act now to show your opposition to the matches and to get them cancelled. If they are not cancelled then we plan to protest at these matches! The world boycotted Apartheid South Africa from sporting events, and the same must be done to the apartheid state of Israel.
The first match is due to take place on Thursday 3rd August, so it is imperative you act now!!
Email and ring the European Cricket Council, and the Scottish Cricket Board, explaining to them your disgust at allowing the Israelis to play here at such an insensitive time. Urge them to cancel these matches, and make clear that you plan to protest should these matches not be cancelled.
