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

Ask your MP to help end the siege on Gaza

1.7 million Palestinians in Gaza are suffering intense hardship. And without urgent action the situation will get even worse.

 

Following the coup in Egypt, the Rafah crossing is mostly closed and tunnels have been blocked, tightening Israel’s siege. Students are so frustrated at being prevented from leaving to study abroad they stormed the crossing to get out. Students like Yousef Aljamal risk losing scholarships at university because they have been prevented from leaving Gaza by Egypt and Israel.

Boy collecting rubble, Gaza, Palestine.

For over 6 years, 1.7 million Palestinians have lived under Israeli siege and blockade in Gaza. The Rafah crossing into Egypt, and the tunnels, provided a lifeline for Palestinians needing to enter or leave Gaza, and for food, medicines and fuel to enter.

Ask your MP to urgently write to the Foreign Office to ask what action is being taken to address the growing humanitarian disaster in Gaza.

 

Palestinians are relying on us to not let their suffering go unnoticed in Britain.

Please take action today

Will the Methodists support BDS?

This Monday, the Methodists launched a major consultation exercise to ask for the views of as many people as possible on BDS. Should the Methodist Church support boycott, divestment and sanctions? Please let them know! The details and the 14 questions that are being posed are here. http://www.methodist.org.uk/BDSBriefing. Although the Methodist Church already supports the boycott of illegal settlements, this is possibly the first time that a major UK church has discussed full BDS. The outcome will be debated next year at the highest levels of the Church including by their Governing body, the Methodist Conference.

The deadline for responses is 8am on 4th November 2013
