UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

A week of action to mark the UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Join us from the 25th November – 2nd December for one or more of our events!

The Israeli government continues to press ahead with its gross violations of international law and Palestinian human rights – accelerating the ongoing colonisation of yet more Palestinian land.

These include plans to proceed with formal annexation, with the so called UAE/Bahrain peace deal signalling only a temporary halt in those plans. Meanwhile Israel continues with the de facto annexation on the ground… just this week plans were announced to build over 4000 more units to expand illegal settlements in the West Bank.

The need for solidarity through action is more important ever. Now is the time to #StopAnnexation and #EndApartheid !
