MPs to be lobbied on Gaza

Members of Sutton for Peace and Justice will be taking part in the mass lobby of Parliament for Gaza on 9 September.

They will be joining with hundreds of others from across the country lobbying their MPs to show how much we care about the situation in Palestine.

The lobby is calling for:

  • An immediate and permanent lifting of the blockade on Gaza, allowing free movement of people, goods and humanitarian aid
  • An end to the arms trade, and all military-industrial collaboration, with Israel
  • Sanctions against Israel until they abide by international and human rights law

 

There will be a briefing session to prepare people for meeting their MP, at Westminster Cathedral Hall between 12 and 1.45.

This will be followed by the lobby of MPs at the House of Commons between 2 and 4 pm.

If your MP is Paul Burstow or Tom Brake and you are interested in joining the lobby please contact Saleh Mamon on salehmamon@yahoo.co.uk

The lobby is being organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and there is more information on their website.
