article from PALESTINE CAMPAIGN
The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, will be in London to meet David Cameron on Wednesday 9 September, according to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
Palestine Solidarity Campaign is organising a protest outside Downing Street on that day to oppose the visit.
GATHER FROM 11am TO 1pm OPPOSITE DOWNING STREET ON WEDNESDAY 9 SEPTEMBER, 2015
We will be providing protest banners and other materials to make the point that this war criminal is not welcome here.
Netanyahu bears direct responsibility for the war crimes identified by the UN Human Rights Council following Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza last summer. More than 2,000 Palestinian men, women and children were killed by Israeli forces during that 50 day massacre, and much of Gaza was destroyed.
And yet the British Prime Minister will shake Netanyahu’s hand next Wednesday and doubtless discuss, among other things, more arms deals between the UK and Israel.
PLEASE JOIN THE PROTEST IF YOU CAN
And please sign PSC’s letter to David Cameron – tell the Prime Minister he should be imposing sanctions and an immediate arms embargo on Israel, not welcoming its war criminal leaders to the UK.
