Plans for the coming weekend 21/22 October
(including travel arrangements to London on Saturday)
On Tuesday, Al-Ahli hospital in the Gaza Strip was bombed, killing over 500 sick and injured Palestinians, doctors, nurses and refugees sheltering from apartheid Israel’s ongoing bombardment. Israel’s war on Gaza has now left over 3,500 Palestinians dead, and over 13,000 injured.
You will have seen that Israel and the USA claim this atrocity was self-inflicted. As Jonathan Cook has said, ‘It’s not just unlikely that a Palestinian rocket hit the Gaza hospital. It’s impossible. The media know this, they just don’t dare say it.’
Amid this horrific loss of life, the UK government and opposition are failing to demand a ceasefire to stop the bloodshed, uphold international law and protect Palestinian lives, or even to call out Israel for its war crimes.
A mass mobilisation has been called for London on Saturday Oct 21. We’re urging all our members and supporters to join this march if they possibly can. Details below, including travel arrangements from Brighton.
The following day, Sunday Oct 22, we will have a vigil at the Peace Statue on the seafront at 2pm. Details below.
