..There are two actions where we need your help:
LOBBY OF PARLIAMENT
You can make a difference. We regularly hold briefing sessions in Parliament about Palestine... but often MPs need to be lobbied by their constituents before taking action.
This is why we're organising an online national Lobby of Parliament on Tuesday 7th December. You'll have the opportunity to join other constituents on a zoom meeting with your MP, and let them know why Palestine is important to you.
Anyone can take part. Once you register to join the Lobby Day, you'll receive a full briefing pack on what to expect and what to discuss. You don't need to be an expert to let your MP know Palestine matters.
Every meeting will have a trusted PSC expert in it, and all participants are invited to a pre-lobby training session. We'll be there to support you throughout the Lobby. Lobby your MP
Grassroots pressure is vital in creating political change. Replicating the framing of PSC's Summer Lobby, we saw Labour Party members overwhelmingly pass a significant motion calling for sanctions against apartheid Israel at their Autumn conference.
Now is the time to build upon this momentum and take the same message to all parties.
Last week Israel moved to criminalise 6 well respected Palestinian human rights organisations. Our politicians need to condemn this outrageous attack on civil liberties, and the broader system of apartheid imposed on Palestinians. Join us in calling for action.
INVITE YOUR MP TO A PARLIAMENTARY BRIEFING
PSC is hosting an important online Parliamentary briefing on the decision of the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) to allocate 100million NIS to use discriminatory laws to claim ownership of hundreds of Palestinian properties, in an attempt to forcibly expel the residents from their homes.
KKL-JNF will use a similar procedure to that being deployed in attempts to remove Palestinians from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan. Israeli organisation Peace Now estimates that over 2000 Palestinian properties in annexed East Jerusalem alone are threatened.

We're going to hold another on our (nearly monthly) stalls in Guildford High Street this Saturday
Please come and join us, even if it's only for 5 mins.
And if you don't have 5 mins: just come and say "hello"!
NOTE: At this stage the weather looks good for Saturday. But if it changes substantially then we'll postpone. We'll make the call on Friday morning, so check the website later Friday/Saturday...
