“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians”

Nelson Mandela

For over 60 years, the Palestinians have been denied access to self-determination and basic human rights.

You can find out more on the PSC website which has excellent fact sheets about the issue.

Why is Palestine one of the key issues of our time?

It’s one of the great historical injustices of our time, for which Britain, Europe and the West bear a particular responsibility, due to the role they played, and continue to play, in the dispossession and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people since 1945.

A grasp of the situation in Palestine and Israel is key to understanding the issues currently faced by the wider Middle East. Finding a just solution to the festering crisis in Palestine/Israel would play a key part in securing peace and stability in the region.

We believe that people power works, and that change is implemented from the grassroots upwards. The situation in Palestine is often (and aptly) compared to South African apartheid – a famous example of injustice brought down by global solidarity and grassroots campaigning.
