GENERAL ELECTION 2010: Make Palestine the Issue


ballot box graphic The issue of justice for the Palestinians has never been more urgent. 1.5 million Palestinians living in Gaza are now into their fourth year of living under a horrific and brutal siege. And Israel is continuing its illegal settlement building programme throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem, further entrenching its illegal occupation.

It is vital that MPs in the next Parliament understand they have a responsibility to act to end Israel’s violations of international law.

Use our campaigning tool to contact your candidates and let them know the strength of public feeling for a just resolution for Palestine, and make them aware that this is a key election issue.

Ask them to show their support by signing up to PSC’s six election pledges:

  • Call on Israel to end its violations of international law, including ending its illegal occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza
  • Oppose any attacks on universal jurisdiction and support bringing those responsible for Israel’s war crimes to justice
  • Work to end the siege on Gaza
  • Call on the government to ban the import of settlement goods
  • Call on the government to suspend the EU-Israel Association Agreement
  • Call for an end to Britain’s arms trade with Israel

It only takes a few minutes. Just click here to find out who your Parliamentary candidates are and you can start lobbying on behalf of the Palestinians.
