An emergency lobby of Parliament day has been called to take place on Wednesday 11 March 2009, to call for the following:

    • End the blockade on Gaza
    • Suspend the EU-Israel Trade Agreement
    • Bring Israeli war criminals to justice
    • End the arms trade with Israel
    • Urge the government to act to implement international law, including an immediate end to Israeli occupation

Wednesday 11 March 2009
2-6pm, House of Commons, London
(Nearest Tube Station, Westminster)

Contact your MP now to make an appointment for 11th March 2009.

A delegation of MEPs visiting Gaza reported that they were “shocked and dismayed at the scenes of wanton destruction witnessed in Gaza.” The delegation called for the immediate opening of all crossings for people, goods and humanitarian aid in order to alleviate the on-going and continuing suffering of the civilian population in Gaza and to
allow the reconstruction of infrastructure. UNRWA informed MEPs that closures are still ongoing and that food and medicines are not yet sufficient to meet the needs of the population.

The Lobby of Parliament Day is an opportunity for everyone to call for urgent action by the British government to address the horrific humanitarian crisis that has been forced upon the people of Gaza.

Take Action Today.
