New Campaign Launch: Full ban on settlement goods (UK)

Dear Friend,

In the 43rd year of Israel”s occupation of Palestine, the repression of its people is worse than ever.

This must end. The Palestinians have a right to live with dignity, free from occupation.

To coincide with the call for a Global Day of Action on 30 March 2010, made by the Palestinian Boycott National Committee, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign is pleased to launch a campaign in partnership with the TUC which aims to end the sale of settlement produce in Britain.

The British government has recognised that the settlements are illegal and an obstacle to peace. Yet produce from Palestine”s stolen land – fruits, herbs, beauty products, DIY tools – are being sold in our supermarkets and shops, helping to economically sustain the settlements and strengthening the occupation.

Take action using our campaign tool-kit. Inside you”ll find:

* TUC-PSC postcard, leaflet and briefing
* Basic facts about settlements
* Information on organising consumer action
* Model letters to send to your MP, MEP and local supermarkets
* A local media strategy
* E-tools to use in the virtual world
* Useful links, resources and more

All available at:
Together, we can send a clear message that the international community is serious – Israel”s illegal occupation must end, and it must abide by international law.

In solidarity,

Hugh Lanning
Chair, Palestine Solidarity Campaign
