Since the summer of 2014 there has been a seismic shift in public opinion on Palestine. And with that came a transformation in the influence we can have as a movement. Our goal is clear. We are fighting for freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians. The only question is, what’s the most effective way to do it?
PSC’s Action Summit is about answering this question. It’s about the tactics and strategy we need to grow our movement in solidarity with the Palestinians. The Action Summit will provide an empowering space for activists to plan around key issues and get involved in PSC’s campaigns, including BDS campaigns, media bias, the 2015 General Election, and tackling the arms trade. This is our opportunity to escalate our campaign and use this tipping point in Palestine activism to make a difference for Palestine.
