A reminder about campgaigning against the Israeli massacre in Gaza

 I think many will be interested in this email from Stop the War coalition there are many suggestions as to what we might to do to alert our country as to what is happening and to press the UK government to supine its attitude to Israel

Stop the War Coalition

*Newsletter - 3 April 2018
*Protest for Gaza: Stop the Killing
Saturday 7 April | 1-3pm
*Downing Street, London, SW1A 2

The issue of Palestine is once again in the headlines. On 30 March 2018, the 42nd anniversary of Land Day, unarmed Palestinian protestors were fired at with live bullets at the Gaza border by Israeli snipers. They killed 17 people and injured over 1500 people. The protest was the beginning of a series of events which will continue until Nakba day, 15 May. By selling arms and in other ways supporting the right-wing Netanyahu government, Britain has long been complicit in the Israeli state's war crimes against Palestinians.

Join us this Saturday to call for an end to the siege of Gaza and ask the UK government to condemn Israel's violent actions instead of facilitating them.

The protest is co-organised by Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Friends of Al-Aqsa and Stop the War.
