End Israeli Occupation
Peace For All
Lobby of Parliament
Wed 28 November
2-6pm Westminster, London
Followed by a Public Meeting at 7pm
This marks the UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (annually observed on 29 November).
Join with us and call on your MP to: support international law, end the siege of Gaza and respect Palestinian democracy.
End Israeli occupation and support international law
Israel must withdraw its settlements and military presence from the occupied Palestinian territories. There are currently 120 Israeli settlements established as far as 10km into the west bank taking up 3% of the West Bank, but due to the surrounding settler roads and the route of the Wall, Israel has occupied 40% of the West Bank, leaving Palestinians unable to access their land and facing severe restrictions on movement in and around the West Bank.
End the siege on Gaza
Since the Israeli imposed siege on Gaza, an urgent response is needed from the international community to ensure that aid and other essentials are reaching Gazas 1.5 million besieged people.
To lobby your MP:
1. Contact your MP as soon as possible and arrange a meeting with them on Wednesday 28 November. If you dont know who your MP is, go to http://www.faxyourmp.com or phone 020 7219 3000. Briefly explain to your MP what you would like to speak to them about.
2. Let us know when you have an appointment with your MP so we can co-ordinate with other people in the same constituency.
