For the past 100 years Palestinian rights have been disregarded. As we approach the centenary of the Balfour Declaration on 2nd November – which built the path for their dispossession – we are demanding justice and equal rights for the Palestinians now.
This is going to be one of the biggest UK demonstrations for Palestine in several years – it’s an opportunity for the people of Britain to demand that British complicity in the dispossession of the Palestinian people must end now.
More info (including a video) on the national PSC website.
We’re hoping that local people will travel to London together and then march together behind our BHPSC banner. We’ll be catching the 10.28am Victoria train from Brighton, so let’s meet up at 9.45am to arrange group tickets for anyone who has not already bought tickets.
Speakers at the rally will include:
Dr Mustafa Barghouti / Andy Slaughter MP / Mick Whelan General Secretary ASLEF / Gail Cartmail TUC / Matt Wrack General Secretary FBU / Margaret McKee President Unison / John Pilger / Senator Paul Gavan Sinn Fein / Leanne Mohamad / Reem Kelani / Philipa Harvey NEU/NUT Section / Daoud Abdalah BMI / Ajmal Masrour Imam & broadcaster / Prof Manuel Hassassian / Tariq Ali / Salma Yacoub / Dave Randall – And many more to be announced.
