Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS (behind the Central Library).
Manchester PSC invited representatives from various political parties, standing in either the General or Council Elections, to come and explain how they would support Palestinian human rights if elected in May.
After Israel’s attacks on Gaza last summer, this is an issue concerning many voters.
Come to Friends Meeting House to hear them talk about:
*Urging the UK Government to uphold the principles of equality, human rights and international law in all its relations and dealings with Israel. *The blockade of Gaza. *Banning the construction of Israeli settlements, and the wall, on occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. *Suspending the EU Israel Association Agreement until Israel meets its human rights obligations. *The recognition of Palestine by the next UK Government. *Banning trade with Israel’s settlements on Palestinian land, and stopping settlement goods being sold in Britain. *The arms trade between the UK and Israel.
