Last chance to sign the petition to the Prime Minister calling for an end of the siege on Gaza
On Friday PSC will deliver a petition to the Prime Minister calling for an end to the siege on Gaza. Sign the petition now>
Help Palestinians by calling for the Prime Minister to end this unsupportable and immoral blockade of Gaza. Israel’s blockade on Gaza must be ended immediately and permanently.
The total number of trucks carrying exports from Gaza in 2013 was 182, according to UN OCHA. Before the siege began it was 250 every week. There is no wonder that poverty and unemployment are shockingly high.
In the week starting 31 December, no one was allowed to enter or leave Gaza via the Egyptian border.
floods in Gaza
Although the floods in Gaza have now subsided, people are still suffering additional hardship as a result.
It is time for our Government to play its full part in finally ending the horrific siege on Palestinians living in the Gaza strip. The United Nations Works and Relief Association (UNWRA) has called for the ‘world community to lift Israel’s blockade on Gaza’.
Please help us to press the UK Government to take the right action. Petition the Prime Minister today. And share this email with your friends and family.
