Palestinians Living in Israel: The Challenges

Defend the Rights of Palestinian Citizens in Israel
Wednesday 28th July 2010, 19.00, House of Commons

Haneen Zoubi MK – Israeli Knesset member on the Mavi Marmara
Dr Jamal Zahalka MK– Leader of the Balad party, Knesset
Talab Al-Sana MK - Bedouin Knesset member

PSC and the Middle East monitor have organised a meeting with three Palestinian members of the Israeli Knesset to discuss the challenges of living in Israel.

Find out about the work that Palestinian Knesset members are carrying out to represent their electorate, despite the overwhelming difficulties they face on a daily basis.

The meeting will be a unique opportunity to hear about the serious attacks on the democratic rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel, following the decision last week to remove parliamentary privileges of Haneen Zoubi for her participation in the flotilla taking humanitarian aid to Gaza.

RSVP essential. To reserve a seat please email: events@memonitor.org.uk

Get your MP to sign EDM 508: Haneen Zoubi MK

Jeremy Corbyn MP has tabled an early day motion stating ' That this House is concerned that Israeli Knesset member Haneen Zoubi has had a number of her parliamentary privileges withdrawn because she participated in the Freedom Flotilla which attempted to take aid to Gaza in May 2010; believes that the siege of Gaza is wrong; and applauds Haneen Zoubi for her courage in exposing this.

Please contact your MP and ask them to sign the EDM before the summer recess break (begins: July 27th)
