A United Kingdom-based group is stepping up advocacy for human rights and justice in Palestine. The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) is gathering support for a National Lobby of Parliament for Palestine on November 27, according to a press release on the NGO’s website.
The organization will lobby the British government on 4 key issues:
1) Members of Parliament to challenge ethnic cleansing and discriminatory policies
2) Ban settlement goods
3) Respect for prisoners’ rights and an end to Israel’s illegal treatment of Palestinian prisoners, including children.
4) An end to the siege on Gaza
While the most visible advocacy will happen at the British Parliament in London, organizers are encouraging supporters to meet with their MPs one-on-one to discuss issues. They believe international pressure is key if Israel is to change its policies.
“It is our Parliament, they are our MPs – so let’s show them they must respect Palestinian human rights if they want our support.”
