Justice for Palestine – Stop Annexation and Occupation Now
Monday 14 September 6pm BST
The Palestinian people need our solidarity more then ever, to achieve justice and equality, in the face of the military occupation, the ongoing and crippling siege of Gaza and the rapidly expanding illegal settlements. More so as the Israeli government is moving towards further annexation of Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank, which is not only an attack on the rights and futures of Palestinians, but also against the very foundations of international law.
Join us to hear how, now more than ever, the trade union movement in the UK can stand up for justice and equality for the Palestinian people.
