We are very pleased that with your help we have emailed candidates in 612 of the constituencies in the election – from Airdrie  to Yeovil and from Aberconwy to York Central.

 

However we still have much to do over the next 90 days to push Palestine  up  the political agenda and ensure that it is THE international  issue that the next  Parliament delivers on.

 

It is not simply about reaching all the candidates, but ensuring that they each receive as many emails as possible, demonstrating to them how many of us care about justice for Palestine!

 

– If you haven’t already used our easy e-tool to contact your local candidates, take a moment to do so!

 

– If you have already emailed your candidates and haven’t received a reply, please chase them! If you have received a reply, please forward us their responses.

 

– And please, please ask friends and family to email their candidates too! The more emails candidates receive, the more impetus they will feel to commit to human rights in Palestine.

Get involved and take action. Let’s make sure all candidates know how we feel about Palestine!

 

If you know of candidates that aren’t listed please let us know.

HP provides Israel with specialised technologies which are integral to Israel’s system of oppression of the Palestinian people. HP profits from the illegal Israeli occupation by providing:

 

  •          Key IT systems used by the Israeli navy to enforce the deadly blockade and destruction of Gaza
  •          Technologies used by the Israeli army to stop the free movement of Palestinians living in the West Bank, and to maintain Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land, such as the BASEL system
  •          Services and technologies to major Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, including Ariel and Mod’in Illit

The letter, with all your signatures, will be delivered to HP before its main shareholders meeting in March. Let’s get thousands of signatures onto the letter!

PSC’s Action Summit is a day of interactive workshops for activists and supporters.

It will provide an empowering space for activists to plan around key issues, including BDS campaigns, media bias, the 2015 General Election, and tackling the arms trade.

academic), Omar Barghouti (co-founder of BDS movement), Owen Jones (author,

activist and journalist at The Guardian), Hugh Lanning (PSC Chair) and Sarah

Colborne (PSC Director).

 

More inspiring and experienced activists will be running the workshops throughout the day so that we can come up with concrete actions to strengthen our movement and the struggle for a free Palestine.
