The ongoing conflict in Gaza has resulted in immense suffering, a huge loss of life, and a severe humanitarian crisis. Yet the British Government is still refusing to call for a ceasefire to stop the bloodshed.
I have been proud to speak at every major demonstration for Palestine in Central London and I will be there again this Saturday as we march from Hyde Park to the US Embassy demanding an immediate ceasefire. I hope you will join me and encourage your friends and family to join this peaceful protest. With the Home Secretary stoking division and calling these peace marches “hate marches”, it is more important than ever to stand up for the right to protest and a peaceful way forward.
We know our strength is in our numbers, so please join us this weekend – on Saturday 11th November, 12 midday, assembling at Hyde Park.
We will march from Hyde Park to the US Embassy after the US House of Representatives voted to send $14.3 billion worth of weapons to Israel.
As a new session is starting in Parliament, we must [also] urge every MP to call for a ceasefire. You can use this tool by our Peace & Justice Project to email your MP urging them to back a ceasefire in Parliament.
As Mohammed el-Kurd – who I had the privilege of meeting earlier this year – said, “we must not wait for history to pass us by. Everyone, regardless identity or sector, must heed the calls coming from the Palestinian streets and take action against genocide.”
See you on Saturday.
