Friday 15th May marks the 67th year since the Nakba. That’s 67 years since whole Palestinian villages were razed to the ground, their residents massacred and hundreds of thousands more Palestinians were forced to flee. The Nakba (catastrophe) created 750,000 Palestinian refugees in just a matter of weeks. Today that figure is over 7 million.

The Nakba continues to this day. Not only in the millions of Palestinian refugees spread across the world, many of whom have become double refugees due to conflicts like the one in Syria, but in the ongoing displacement of Palestinians. Just this week it has emerged that the Israeli government plans to legalise settlement outposts (which even the Israeli Government have considered illegal until now) making permanent the illegal stealing of Palestinian land and destruction of livelihood. Whilst in Gaza it has emerged that families in Khuza’a have been forced to live in shipping containers after their homes were destroyed in the most recent Israeli massacre. Many families look out onto the rubble of their houses and face the constant memory of Israel’s attack.

You can support two villages that are facing imminent destruction, evictions and deportations:

For all of you who care about Palestinian rights and will be remembering the Nakba, show your support with a selfie! Tweet it to us @PSCupdates and post it on our facebook page. Wear your keffiyehs, badges, stickers and Palestine t-shirts. Make sure to include #Nakba67 so that we can show the world just how many of us are standing in solidarity with Palestine. Let’s make a loud noise on social media in support of the determination of the Palestinians who refuse to give up on their rights. Take a selfie for Palestine!

General Election update
vote palestine
Thank you for all your actions throughout our General Election campaign. Over the last few weeks supporters sent over 36,000 messages to candidates up and down the country – and we were able to gather the views of 1,043 of them from parties across the spectrum. With your help we made sure Palestine was on the agenda of the candidates across the UK.

With David Cameron at the helm, with his agenda of repressive legislation and pro-Israel bias, it is clear that we will need to work together to ensure that Palestinian human rights and the need for action stay on the political agenda.

Please help us raise £10,000 to continue our work with MPs. Donate now
Sanctions now! Support our petition for the new Government
Join the 15741 people who’ve called on the new Government to introduce sanctions on Israel. We will be handing in our petition to the new government in three weeks, demanding action against the Israeli Government’s extremism.
Israel’s Prime Minister, Netanyahu, has publicly vowed that there will never be a Palestinian state. We believe that only sanctions on Israel can end the occupation. We the undersigned demand that the UK government pushes the EU to impose immediate sanctions on Israel until it abides by international law, ends settlement building, and ends the occupation and the blockade of Gaza.
Red card Israeli racism campaign

In the face of severe Israeli pressure the Palestinian FA is holding firm on its proposal for the Israeli FA to be suspended from FIFA until guarantees to respect the jurisdiction of the Palestinian FA, and upholds Palestinian players freedom of movement, and remedies the Israeli FA’s breaches of anti-discrimination rules.

FIFA’s annual Congress is being held on 28th-29th May in Zürich. FIFA’s President appears to be doing everything he can to avoid this coming before FIFA’s annual congress.

PSC members can make a personal impact – and numbers do count – by emailing FIFA President Sepp Blatter at [email protected] and/or tweeting him at https://twitter.com/SeppBlatter to insist that the motion be discussed and voted on. To find out how else you can help, read more>
