Dear Friend,

Today socially distanced protests are taking place all over the UK demanding the UK ends its complicity in Israel’s war crimes, six years after Israel ended its 51 day aerial bombardment and ground invasion of besieged Gaza, killing over 2,200 Palestinians.

As Israel attacks Gaza yet again, subjecting the besieged strip to 10 consecutive nights of bombing, will you join your local action?

Yes, I’ll join my local protest today!
I can’t join a protest today, but I’ll tweet to say #StopArmingIsrael!
Despite widespread condemnation of Israel’s deliberate and systematic targeting of the civilian population of Gaza, and the ongoing suffocating land, sea and aerial blockade, the UK government continues to arm Israel, granting licenses for weapons and military technology worth hundreds of millions to be exported to Israel.

In addition, the UK continues to purchase high-tech weaponry from Israel, advertised as “battle-tested” on the Palestinian people in Gaza.

As Israel continues to murder Palestinians with impunity, Palestinian civil society has called for states to take effective action to hold Israel to account for its egregious human rights violations, including by introducing a two-way arms embargo now.

Write to your MP and demand they support a two-way arms embargo on Israel.

Tell your MP to call for a two-way arms embargo now
UK complicity runs deeper than the government.

Financial institutions such as HSBC invest in and provide financial services to companies that supply Israel with weapons. This includes BAE Systems and Raytheon. Weapons with both BAE and Raytheon components were used by Israel in 2014. That’s why many of the protests today take place outside HSBC branches.

Write to HSBC’s management and tell them to #StopArmingIsrael.

Write to HSBCs CEO, demand they end their complicity
The chain of complicity runs deeper still. As revealed by our research both UK universities and local government pension funds invest in swathes of companies complicit in Israel’s war crimes, including companies that supply weapons to Israel.

Both students and local government pension scheme members are speaking out for justice, campaigning to get their institutions to divest from all companies complicit in Israel’s war crimes.

Tell all institutions to #StopArmingIsrael
When we act together we can win.

Last week, 2,000 of you wrote to your MP, demanding they speak out against the illegal detention of BDS co-ordinator Mahmoud Nawajaa. After international pressure, including from the UK, Israel released him without charge.

Taking coordinated action, as part of the global solidarity movement, makes our collective voice stronger. That’s why days of actions like today are so important. 

We’re counting on you to take part.

Join a protest and demand the UK #StopArmingIsrael
In solidarity,

Lewis
