Please sign and share our 3 current petitions below. Please be in touch directly with us to join our activities.
(1) Oppose annexation of the West Bank. Please write to your MP or the Foreign Office. We are waiting for a Parliamentary Petition to be approved and will then paste it here. Mid-June 2020: We have not heard anything about our petition to Parliament so can’t send it to you! Please do write to your MP and also contact us about our socially-distanced demos on 1st July.
Israel’s government is now planning annexation of the West Bank and Trump’s administration in the USA is also encouraging Israel to take most of the land in the West Bank, if not all of it. This plan is entirely against the human rights of the Palestinians, against international law and numerous international judgments. It will be a decisive next step in the dispossession of Palestinians. Israel has no intention of giving the Palestinians equal rights or a vote; this annexation will cement in the apartheid inequalities already created by the Israeli occupation.
(2) Visa equality campaign SIGN HERE
We argue that while Israel holds on to Palestinian land and builds on it on defiance of International law, the UK should either treat Palestinians like Israelis (no visas needed for UK) or Israelis like Palestinians (long, expensive and complicated UK visa system). The aim should be to end the apartheid situation, and the UK should have no part in upholding it
(3) Free Mohammed Salah from adminstrative detention SIGN HERE
We are calling for an end of Israel’s policy of mass imprisonment of Palestinians and in particular the policy of administrative detention – there should be no imprisonment without trial. We believe that Palestinian prisoners should be released in a hurry because of the Corona virus which is rumoured to be spreading in Israeli prisons.
Here we are calling in particular for the release of Mohammed Salah from Abu Dis. He was imprisoned on 7th April and has been given a “sentence” of six months in prison without any trial. Mohammed was ill when he was taken and so his family are doubly worried about his health – They want to know that he is getting the treatment he needed – but they also are concerned that he does not compound his existing medical problem by catching the virus in jail.
