Stop the Killings - Protest for Gaza: Saturday April 7th 1pm Whitehall




 Assemble this Saturday, April 7th in Whitehall (Downing Street) at 1pm.  Called by Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Friends of Al Aqsa and supported by Stop the War UK.

JOIN THE NATIONAL PROTEST FOR GAZA: STOP THE KILLING
Saturday 7th April, 1 PM - 3 PM
Downing Street, London, SW1A 2, United Kingdom


In the worst single day of violence since the assault on Gaza in 2014, Israeli forces shoot 773 unarmed Palestinians taking part in a Land Day demonstration.

Thousands of Palestinians congregated in Gaza to start a series of protests called “The Great Return March”. Organised as a non-violent demonstration supported across Palestinian society, the protest is reaffirming the Palestinian right of return (grounded in International Law), and calling for an end to Israel's illegal decade long blockade of the coastal strip.

Last week Israel deployed hundreds of snipers along the border of Gaza, who opened fire using live ammunition on unarmed Palestinian civilians. Over 1,400 Palestinians were injured, with 773 being shot, leaving 18 fatalities. There was not a single Israeli casualty.

“Israeli soldiers were not merely using excessive force, but were apparently acting on orders that all but ensured a bloody military response to the Palestinian demonstrations.” - Human Rights Watch.

Videos emerging of the shootings show Protestors being shot whilst running away from the border, and in the act of praying. But most devastating perhaps are the images of young men, and women, walking calmly towards the border, waving the national flag, before being felled by sniper fire.

The Great Return March will continue until May 15th  (coinciding with the 70thanniversary of the 1948 “Nakba”), with more largescale demonstrations planned. The Israeli government, protected from international censure by the shield of western governments, has announced that it will continue to meet demonstrations with live fire.

The only thing that can prevent more Palestinians being gunned down in the coming weeks is the force and weight of international public opinion. Have your voice heard by writing to the Foreign Office, and by joining the Saturday demonstration in London.

The organisers of the Great Return March asked that the only flag to be raised during the march is the Palestinian flag with no partisan or factional symbols. We are asking all those attending the demonstration on Saturday to respect this and bring no flag other than the flag of Palestine.

Free Ahed Tamimi and all Palestinian child prisoners


Add your name to this open letter targeting all world leaders:
"We demand that Ahed and all Palestinian children are released from Israeli prisons now.

The international community must put an end to the ill-treatment and detention of Palestinian children. Enough is enough.

To Ahed and all the children in Israeli jails: We stand by your side, and are holding you in our hearts. 


We will not give up until you are free. You are not alone."
 
More information:

Ahed Tamimi was dragged out of her bed in the night and arrested.

Ahed is a child, and like thousands of Palestinian children she could be humiliated and abused if we don't get her out fast.

Ahed's been on the frontline defending Palestine since she was 7 years old. Now Ahed needs us to stand up for her.

Add your name to free Ahed and all child prisoners, it will be delivered to leaders worldwide and to Ahed's lawyer, to give to Ahed in prison to give her strength as she faces the Israeli military's terrifying interrogation tactics.

Support needed after Abu Dis students and teacher beaten by Israeli army




From Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association
Dear friends of CADFA

We wrote to you this morning about the Israeli army entering Abu Dis schools, two students being hurt and a teacher being beaten. This is a terrible escalation of the problem of the army around the schools that we have written to you about several times in the past year and we have written again to our MP.

We would be grateful if you could back up this effort by writing to your own MP/ MEP along the following lines.  You can find your MP here and your MEPs here.

Many thanks for your help.

Dear (MP/ MEP)

Israeli army in Abu Dis schools

I am writing to express my horror at the report received this morning from CADFA (Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association), who tell us the Israeli soldiers this morning interfered with the running of three schools in Abu Dis, bursting into two secondary boys’ schools (Abu Dis Boys and the Jawarharlal Nehru School, which are adjacent to each other) and using tear gas and shooting rubber bullets. I understand that they were there before the boys arrived at school and that in the early morning, at least two boys were injured, a teacher beaten, others affected by tear gas and the schools closed. Then the army threw tear gas into the New Generation primary school on the same road.

CADFA’s human rights reports since 2006 show the presence of the Israeli army around the schools is regular and a matter of concern. During this past year, they have often interfered with schooling, throwing tear gas and on one occasion bursting into the school to arrest a student. Today, beating a teacher and shooting inside the school take the unacceptable to a new level, and this letter is to ask you to raise this matter with the Foreign Office and ask them to raise this with the Israelis.

This is an important issue on two levels. One is immediate: how to protect the children and make a safe space for them in school?  The army invading schools and attacking students is not only a contravention of the rights of the children but it is building problems for the future. The second issue is how to move forward on the issue of on-going violations of human rights by the Israelis in Palestine, which are creating suffering for generations of Palestinians and related problems for the region and for all of us.

Please will you convey to the Foreign Office the concern felt by increasing numbers of us that this is a matter that should not wait.

Yours sincerely

Please note CADFA's new address:
