We are calling for an end to Israel’s near-10 year siege on Gaza, and an end to the UK’s arms trade with Israel.
Join PSC opposite Downing Street on Friday 8th July at 5pm.
For the last ten years, the densely populated Israeli occupied Gaza Strip has been besieged by Israel, by land, sea and air. 1.8 million Palestinians, the vast majority of whom are refugees, are effectively trapped.
After three major military assaults by Israeli forces in the last eight years, resulting in the deaths of thousands of Palestinians, and very little reconstruction, Gaza is now virtually unliveable.
Two years after Israel’s last major assault, which killed over 2,220 Palestinians including 500 children, the siege remains firmly in place.
The siege of Gaza amounts to collective punishment, illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention. As the occupying power, Israel has obligations to the people of Gaza, under international law.
End the siege on Gaza | End the arms trade with Israel | Free Palestine
