Email your MP: Israel's attacks in Gaza

Israel’s attacks on protesters in Gaza are only the latest example of its militarised repression of Palestinians. Israel’s military administers the illegal occupation and siege of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, enforcing closure from land, air and sea. It targets unarmed Palestinians with tear gas grenades, rubber-coated bullets and live ammunition, and carries out mass arrests, house demolitions and extrajudicial executions. This brutality lies at the heart of Israel’s systematic violations of Palestinian rights, amounting to serious breaches of international law, and even war crimes.

Palestinians have every right to protest against this illegal and devastating oppression. Israel’s attacks against Palestinian protesters are not a series of reactions, they are a built-in part of Israel’s apartheid regime of control.

After Israel’s latest crackdown, the United Nations General Secretary and the European Union called for an independent investigation into the killing and injuring of Palestinians in Gaza during the protests. The call has been echoed by UK MPs across parties, and has been reiterated in Early Day Motion 1163.

Please ask your MP to support this important EDM and to raise the issue of accountability for Israel’s breaches of international law.
