Re: EU parliamentary vote on Resolution to recognise Palestine as a State in its own right

Dear MEP for Scotland

You will no doubt know that an EU parliamentary vote on a resolution to recognise Palestine as a State in its own right was originally planned for the plenary meeting
on 27 November 2014, and has been carried forward to the next plenary sitting in Strasbourg in December this year.
As someone who has been working for Peace and Justice in Palestine and Israel, I urge you
on 15 December 2015 to vote in favour of the resolution to recognise Palestine as a State in its own right.

[Salutation]

[your name/address etc]
