Oban Vigil on Saturday, 28 Sept 2013 – Stop Arming Israel!

Within about 90 minutes, a few members of Oban Concern for Palestine collected over 85 signatures from passers-by to the following Petition to Alistair Burt, MP, the UK Minister responsible for the Middle East:

“Stop Arming Israel

“Israel has violated more UN resolutions than any other country and its increasingly violent occupation of Palestine has created a humanitarian crisis in the region.  Yet the UK government continues to license the export of military equipment for use by Israel in violation of its own arms export policy.

“By selling arms to Israel, the British government is giving direct material support for Israel’s aggression and sending a clear message of approval for its actions.

“This must stop. Please help us end the UK’s material support for Israel’s aggression.”

Please copy this petition and send to Alistair Burt and/or consult the War on Want website for more details.130928 Oban Concern for Palestine Peace vigil Jan June Graeme D 130928 Oban Concern for Palestine Peace Vigil Standup Banner Jan June
