Tell your MP: VOTE to recognise Palestine
So far over 15,000 of you have emailed your MPs to ask them to vote for Palestine. This is amazing but is only a small proportion of those who receive our updates – so please take action if you haven’t already.
This is important: this is the first opportunity in at least four Parliaments that MPs have had a vote to recognise Palestinians’ right to self-determination.Please make sure that you do all you can to urge your MP to vote for Palestine.

Ask your MP to vote to recognise Palestine:
MPs say 'recognise Palestine'

Even if your MP is not usually supportive please do take the time to send them an email, and encourage others you know to do so as well. As this is a backbench debate, MPs will not be obliged by their political parties to vote – so let’s make sure that as many as possible turn up and vote for Palestine.

7,000 call for action over BBC’s Head of Statistics
BBC
This week PSC sent an open letter, signed by 7,000 people, to the BBC. The letter calls for the removal of the broadcaster’s Head of Statistics from all reporting on Palestine and Israel.

 

The demand followed an article published on the BBC website, in which the Head of Statistics, Anthony Reuben, misused Palestinian casualty figures in an attempt to back up Israel’s claims that it had not targeted civilians during its July/August assault on Gaza.
