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 !

Liverpool Electronic ARMS Fair Cancelled

Electronic Arms Fair scheduled to take place in Liverpool in November has just been cancelled after public pressure. It will now be held in Spain in May 2021.

It is welcome that Electronic Warfare Europe, due to take place at the council-run ACC Exhibition Centre in November, has been cancelled after pressure from a large groups in Liverpool.

However, it is extremely disappointing that the cancellation has come from the event organisers, not the council. Instead, the council has refused to respond to large coalition of groups in Liverpool, who had been calling for the event’s cancellation on the grounds of human rights.

PSC are therefore asking people to write to the Liverpool City Council cabinet to call on them to confirm that no arms fair will take place at a council owned venue in the future, and to implement a robust ethical events policy.

To commemorate the Nakba, we will remember the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestinian villages beyond 1948. In 1967, on the second day of the 1967 war, Dima Abu Ghosh was forced to flee her village, along with all its inhabitants, when she was two years old. None of the villagers was ever able to return. After demolishing Emwas and a neighbouring village, the Israeli government turned the area into a public park called the Canada Park. The film follows the journey of the director, Dima Abu Ghosh, as she brings the demolished village to life and rebuilds her demolished hometown through a model, to restore the memories of its inhabitants and their dreams.

About this Event

Join guest speakers and experts in a monthly webinar series to explore the role of the Jewish National Fund in the historic and ongoing ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people. From the Nakba to today, the JNF has been a key agent in the colonization of Palestine. We will also explore how the JNF has helped to forge the racist ideology of the state of Israel, financing a discriminatory system whilst, at the same time, being accorded charitable status across the world. The campaign against the JNF likewise reaches across the world – we invite you to join us , wherever you are, in this campaign for justice.

Webinars will be held on the first Saturday of Month at 4pm (BST)  starting on Saturday 2nd May .

Our expert guests will discuss the JNF as a pioneer of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and its ongoing activities to expel Palestinians from their homes. We’ll look at the JNF’s claims to act on behalf of Jews worldwide and show how this racist organisation can be challenged wherever you are.
