We are pleased to announce that Awad Abdel Fattah, General Secretary of the Palestinian National Democratic Assembly (NDA) is visiting the UK.
The NDA is part of the Joint List of Palestinians in the Israeli Parliament (The Knesset). Awad comes here at a critical moment. Haneen Zoabi MK and one other NDA member of the Knesset have been accused of supporting terrorism and banned from sitting in the Knesset. These are representatives of one and a quarter million Palestinians living inside Israeli borders. The Zionists clearly have the Joint List of Palestinians in their sights. Many fear that they will wield their majority vote to expel the entire Joint List, ending any Palestinian presence in the Israeli parliament.
The Zionists’ attempts to ban the political representatives of 20% of the people inside their state, show their claims that Israel is the only democratic country in the Middle East to be patently false.
Awad will explain the background to this parliamentary crisis and the brutal reality for Palestinians living within the borders of Israel. The British government is complicit in this situation. Its role in supporting the Israeli state in the oppression of the Palestinian people is well known: it buys, sells and develops the weapons that are then tested on Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, as well as others throughout the Middle East.
Awad represents a number of committed, brave people who are determined to fight back. They need our support.
This meeting is hosted by North London PSC branches in Hackney, Walthamstow, Enfield and Haringey
