What is the national lobby for Palestine?
The most powerful way to let your MP know you care about Palestine is to ask them to meet you to discuss it.
When lots of people from around the UK arrange to meet their MPs in Parliament on the same day, it is known as a lobby day and alerts all MPs to the fact that lots of people care about the issue.
Who can take part?
If you’re eligible to vote in General Elections you can lobby your local MP.
Do I need to be an expert?
No! Your MP will be used to meeting local people who care passionately about an issue, but they shouldn’t expect you to know everything. We will provide all the information you need in advance. We also have experts on hand on the day itself for last-minute preparation and questions.
How long will my meeting last?
The meeting will normally last about half an hour, sometimes more, sometimes
less. There are likely to be other people meeting your MP at the same time –
MPs like to see everyone together. So you won’t be alone!
What is it like?
Coming to the lobby is one of the best ways to show solidarity with the
Palestinian people and we are sure you will get a lot out of the day. You’ll meet
lots of like-minded people, our preparation talks are interesting and informative.
It is also a great way to visit Parliament, and there is also an evening rally with
MPs, Lords and other great speakers. Make sure you are part of it.
Great! What do I do now?
