Action for Gaza

7 August 2014

We back today's ITUC day of action for Gaza. Join Saturday's demonstration and the lobby of Parliament in September.


It seems like the politicians are starting to listen. Labour leader Ed Miliband has said the government must oppose Israel's actions in Gaza, calling Prime Minister David Cameron's silence 'inexplicable'. Yesterday, Baroness Warsi, the senior Foreign Office minister, resigned from the government, saying its 'approach and language during the current crisis in Gaza is morally indefensible'.
The pressure is mounting on the government over its silence and inaction over Israel's massacre in Gaza and PSC have organised a demonstration in London on Saturday to highlight that the overwhelming opposition to what is taking place in Gaza and to persuade our government to change it's one sided approach.
Date: Saturday 9th August
Time: Assemble at midday outside BBC Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London W1A 1AA
For march to Hyde Park via the US Embassy
TSSA is supporting the PSC demonstration and members planning to attend should meet at 1130am outside Oxford Street tube station on the junction with North Regent Street, from where we can walk to the BBC.?

Mass Lobby of Parliament

Tuesday 9th September, 2-4pm, Parliament, Committee Room 11
On Tuesday 9th September we are organising an emergency lobby of Parliament, focused on Gaza.
We will be focusing on three demands: 

  • Lifting the blockade on Gaza
  • An arms embargo on Israel
  • And sanctions against Israel to support international law and human rights. A central target is the suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement

Evening Rally: That evening from 6-7.3pm we are having a rally in committee room 14. It would be great to see you there.
