Protest: 6pm to 7pm, Thu 27 Feb, at Kensington Court W8 5DL, just off High St Kensington, opposite the Israeli Embassy
As socialists, labour movement activists, and campaigners for human rights, we are protesting opposite the Israeli embassy in support of the Palestinians' right to self-determination, and in opposition to occupation and threats of annexation, given a green light by Trump’s sham “Peace Plan”.
We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and with socialists, internationalists, and peace activists within Israel protesting their own government’s brutal policies.
We believe that only a settlement based on equal rights for both peoples, Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs, can bring peace, security, and justice. Immediately, this means:
• No to annexation
• An end to the occupation and the blockade of Gaza
• An end to all settlement building
• A viable, independent Palestinian state, alongside and with the same rights as Israel
• Full civil rights for Israel’s Arab minority
• Justice for the Palestinian refugees
We call on trade unions, local Labour Parties, and other campaign groups to cosponsor and help us build our protest.
Initial supporters of this callout (all in a personal capacity):
Clive Lewis, Labour MP for Norwich South
Nadia Whittome, Labour MP for Nottingham East
Barnaby Marder, Socialists Against Antisemitism
Dana Naomy Mills, University and College Union activist
Daniel Randall, RMT activist
