17 April Israeli embassy

Activists from Workers' Liberty, the Worker-communist Party of Iran (Hekmatist, Official Line), and others protested on the street outside the Israeli Embassy in London on Thursday 18 April.

Israeli prime minister Netanyahu has announced plans to annex to Israel Area C of the West Bank - 60%-plus of the West Bank's land area, surrounding every one of the 160-odd patches of land (cities, towns, villages) designated as Areas A and B with some autonomous control by the Palestinian Authority. The Trump administration in the USA has given a tacit endorsement to this plan.

The West Bank has been under Israeli military occupation since 1967, but formally declaring most of its land area to be part of Israel will create a huge new obstacle to the realisation of the right of the Palestinian people to have their own state alongside Israel, and to a democratic settlement on the basis of equal rights.

We called for an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel: two nations, two states!

Whether Netanyahu carries through on this depends in part on the scale and volume of protest worldwide.

We will be on the streets again, with a "Two States" bloc at the Palestine Solidarity Campaign protest on 11 May. Join us there, 12 noon at the BBC, Portland Place, London.
