PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Palestinians facing upsurge in Israeli repression

  

Join

Israel’s attacks on Palestinians are continuing, as tensions increase in Jerusalem and beyond.

Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu, has announced the reintroduction of punitive house demolitions, an inflammatory and illegal act – whilst a further 200 settlement units have just been approved in East Jerusalem.  This week Israel bombed  a Palestinian fishing boat off the coast of Gaza, as attacks on fishermen become an increasingly common event. The UN are reporting a spike in the number of Palestinians with their homes demolished by Israel. Now Israel’s impunity looks set to continue with Israel refusing to cooperate with the UN Inquiry into the war on Gaza.

The Israeli far right have been mobilising, not only at Al-Aqsa mosque. On Monday night, a violent extreme right wing demo by supporters of Yisrael Beiteinu, the political party headed by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, demonstrated in Jerusalem outside an art exhibition, this time directing their anger at B’Tselem, an Israeli organization that documents human rights abuses against Palestinians. At the demonstration, at least one person was physically assaulted, with shouts of ‘may you burn in the gas chambers’ directed against B’Tselem supporters. Read more>

 

Please help us increase pressure on the UK Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond, to take urgent action, and join the thousands who have already emailed him:http://act.palestinecampaign.org/lobby/ejerusalem

Christmas card

 

With Christmas fast approaching, PSC have produced a card, with a small message on the back.

 

You can order these with ‘Season’s greetings’ or blank inside.

 

Message on the back of the card: “During Operation Protective Edge in Summer 2014, more than 2,100 Palestinians were killed in the Gaza Strip. More than 11,000 Palestinians were injured, and over 475,000 have been made homeless. Major infrastructure has been destroyed or severely damaged. Israel’s continuing blockade meant that there was nowhere to flee to safety. Israel’s blockade on Gaza continues. Its illegal occupation, violations of Palestinian human rights and its refusal to respect international law are ongoing.” £3 for 5 cards, £12.00 for 25 cards.

 

Also, you can order our ‘Colours from Palestine’ calendars. Resistance Art have collected art pieces from 12 different Palestinian artists for this year’s calendar.
