Lobby of Parliament - 'Justice for Palestinians'

Lobby of Parliament - 'Justice for Palestinians'

2-6pm on Wednesday 19 November 2008

Followed by a public meeting 'Time for Government Action' 7pm, Committee Room 10 in the House of Commons.

A lobby of parliament is being organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, the Council for Arab-British Understanding and Jews for Justice for Palestinians on Wednesday 19 November to mark the UN international day of solidarity with the Palestinian people. Previous lobbies of parliament have attracted a significant level of support from solidarity organisations, faith groups, trade unions and other groups. This broad support is very important in demonstrating to MPs and the British government the wide range of organisations calling for peace and justice.

This year the lobby theme will be 'Justice for Palestinians', and will take place from 2-6pm on Wednesday 19 November.


The lobby of parliament will call on the British government to implement international law and press for:
• an end to the blockade on Gaza.
• Israel to end its occupation.
• the dismantling of Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
• respect for Palestinian sovereignty.
• the suspension of the EU-Israel trade agreement.

Ensure that your MP hears your views – please contact them straight away and ask to meet them on the afternoon of 19 November.
