Also, please ask your MP to Speak up for Gaza
at the National Lobby of Parliament for Palestine
on Wed 28 November 2012
This is our best chance to tell MPs that they must:
  • act to stop Israel acting with impunity
  • act to help end the siege on Gaza
  • act to end Israel’s colonisation and occupation
by asking a question in Parliament.
It is urgent that we talk to MPs across the country about the attacks on Gaza and ongoing human rights abuses. This is our best opportunity in the year to make sure that MPs know that Palestine is an issue that matters to their local constituents.
