Scottish Friends of Palestine have asked Oban Concern for Palestine to post this clarification:
‘It has come to our attention that a newly formed charity, ‘Friends of Palestine’, has established itself in Scotland. Currently it operates a stall in Buchanan St., Glasgow on a Saturday.
‘It claims to support the Palestinian people in Scotland and “internationally”.
‘Given the broad similarity in names we ask you to note that this body has absolutely NO association with Scottish Friends of Palestine.
‘In addition we ask you to publicise this disclaimer on social media to reach as wide an audience as possible.’
