Message from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Southampton Branch.

From: PSCSouthampton. pscsoton@gmail.com

Dear All

The state of Israel under Prime Minister Netanyahu, is set to annex much of the West Bank from July 1st onwards. This is unlikely to happen all in one swoop because the state of Israel will want to minimize international reaction but Israel looks set to annex most of the small amount of land that is left to Palestine. This will mean that there will no longer be an effective State of Palestine. The little that will be left will be small unconnected territories heavily controlled by Israel and with no corridors connecting them. This is illegal under international law. Palestine is a state recognised by the UN. However Israel has the support of President Trump and with the world preoccupied by the Coronavirus they may not be much international opposition.

Israel has already announced that Palestinian citizens living in land to be annexed will not have citizen rights in Israel.

Please join us outside West Quay in Above Bar Southampton at 11am on July 4th to demonstrate against this illegal land grab.

Let’s remind people to call on Israel to End Apartheid. Stop the Annexation of Palestine and call on the UK and the EU to implement sanctions. Sanctions Now

We will provide flags and Placards, although please bring your own if you wish. We intend to respect social distancing rules on public gatherings therefore we will not be giving out leaflets and we will be dividing into small groups of six and staying apart . We would advise the wearing of a face mask.

Please also write to your MP. Call on the UK government to implement a ban on all trade with Israeli settlements and for a two way arms embargo on Israel. You can follow the link below to send an email to your MP.

Please also sign the online statement to stand in opposition to annexation.
