Please help us get one of the longest blockade’s in human history lifted. Following floods and freezing temperatures, the situation in Gaza is now catastrophic. UNWRA have called for the immediate lifting of the blockade in order to allow recovery efforts to proceed.
Help us call for the Prime Minister to end this unsupportable and immoral blockade of Gaza. Israel’s blockade on Gaza must be ended immediately and permanently.
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’.
UNWRA’s Chris Gunness, said:
“Any normal community would struggle to recover from this disaster. But a community that has been subjected to one of the longest blockades in human history, whose public health system has been destroyed and where the risk of disease was already rife, must be freed from these man made constraints to deal with the impact of a natural calamity such as this. And of course it is the most vulnerable, the women and children, the elderly who will pay the highest price of failure to end the blockade.”
Please help us to press the UK Government to take the right action. Petition the Prime Minister today.

Reprieve won for Bedouin families against Prawer Plan
Bedouin Palestinian children
Legislation to enact the Prawer Plan – a plan to forcibly displace of up to 70,000 Palestinian Bedouin in the Naqab (Negev) – has been dropped by the Israeli Parliament. This is following world-wide campaigning (including by PSC) led by Palestinian Bedouin people.
However, this has been seen as temporary reprieve and Israeli legislators are already looking for ways to revive the Bill. And it is clear the Israeli Government still intends to ethnically cleanse the area. We will be continuing to campaign on this issue in the new Year.
