From the Palestine Solidarity Campaign:
All out on Saturday!
We have seen an incredible response to Israel’s assault on Gaza. We will be protesting outside the BBC HQ in London tonight and handing in a letter containing 45,000 signatures. The letter calls on the BBC to reflect the reality of Gaza’s occupation and siege in its reporting. Signatories include Noam Chomsky, John Pilger and Ken Loach. Protests have taken place outside BBC studios around the country in the last few days.
54,800 people have emailed their MP to tell them they must take action to end Israel’s war crimes.
And an unprecedented alliance of organisations has come together to take this message to both the British government and Israel’s representatives. Organisations working with Palestine Solidarity Campaign in the demonstration include Friends of Al Aqsa, Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative, Palestinian Forum of Britain, Muslim Association of Britain, Israeli Coalition Against House Demolitions-UK, War on Want, Jews for Justice for Palestinians, and unions Unite, Unison, PCS, RMT, TSSA, ASLEF, and the NUT. More organisations are continuing to add their support.
