GENERAL ELECTION 2010: Make Palestine the Issue

21 April, 2010 – Palestine Solidarity Campaign


We’ve had a fantastic response to our lobby of parliamentary candidates, with thousands of emails sent and over 1200 candidates lobbied. With only two weeks left until election day use our campaigning tool to contact your candidates and let them know the strength of public feeling for a just resolution for Palestine.

Over 1.5 million Palestinians in Gaza are now into their fourth year of living under a horrific and brutal siege, and Israel’s continuing illegal settlement building programme throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem is further entrenching its illegal occupation. It is vital that MPs in the next Parliament understand they have a responsibility to act to end Israel’s violations of international law.

Ask them to show their support by signing up to PSC’s six election pledges:

• Call on Israel to end its violations of international law, including ending its illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza
• Oppose any attacks on universal jurisdiction and support bringing those responsible for war crimes to justice
• Work to end the siege on Gaza
• Call on the government to ban the import of settlement goods
• Call on the government to suspend the EU-Israel Association Agreement
• Call for an end to Britain’s arms trade with Israel

It only takes one minute. Just click here to find out who your Parliamentary candidates are and start lobbying. Please send replies to – candidates can also directly sign the pledge by sending their name, constituency and party to this email.

Find out if your local candidates have sign the pledge here: You may want to download our election briefing to send to your candidates with more in-depth information about the pledges.
In solidarity,

Hugh Lanning
Chair, Palestine Solidarity Campaign
