The General Election 2015 is now only a few months away and despite all the other problems in the world and the Middle East, Palestine remains a crucial issue for our Government’s foreign policy and one that must be addressed if there is ever going to be peace and stability in the Middle East. Gaza remains under siege, tensions in East Jerusalem are at an all time high and there is no sign that settlement building will stop, essential before any meaningful final status negotiations can take place. Elections are due to take place in Israel shortly with the possibility of an even more hard line coalition government coming to power.
The West London branch of the national Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) has invited the candidates from all 4 main parties to debate the issue therefore. We intend to hold a similar meeting in the Hammersmith constituency in March.
Attached is a flyer for the event.. Please distribute and let others in your organizations know about this meeting. Further information available via the PSC website www.palestinecampaign.org or by emailing us on [email protected]
