PSC’s Annual Lobby of Parliament: 28 November

Bookmark and Share

We are asking everyone to get involved in lobbying their MPs. There are 650 MPs and we want as many of them as possible to be lobbied directly by their constituents. Let’s make sure they know that Palestine is one of the biggest issues for our Government and Parliament.

This lobby will focus on the need for UK and EU policy to support the implementation of international law by:

  • Ending UK support for the occupation and settlements: the UK and EU have failed to stop settlements from benefiting from EU benefits. The EU also funds Palestinian welfare because of the impact of the occupation; these costs should be borne by the occupier. The government should be implementing policies which will lead to the dismantling of all Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.
  • Action against Israel’s forced expulsions of Palestinians from their lands and homes: The UK and EU must develop robust policies in response to breaches of international law and human rights, to ensure Israel stops committing further violations.
  • Insisting on the rights of all Palestinian prisoners under international law.
  • Action to protect child prisoners: the UK Government must press Israel to meet its international obligations on the treatment of Palestinian children.

Action not words

As more and more of us become aware of the injustices against Palestinians denied their basic rights, the situation is becoming even more desperate on the ground.

It has never been more important for us to make our elected representatives aware of the growing and unstoppable pressure for peace and justice.

Our government should be playing a leading role in implementing policies to ensure that Israel ends its illegal occupation and respect Palestinian human rights and international law.
