LUTON TOWN HALL, GEORGE STREET, LU1 2BQ // 3.30PM
IMPORTANT: If you have coronavirus symptoms do not attend. Wear a mask, use hand sanitiser, keep social distance.
There is an attempt to ethnically cleanse Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah, occupied Jerusalem. Reports state that over 1,500 Palestinians are at risk of being forcibly displaced by the Israeli authorities.
As Palestinians protest in Jerusalem against these evictions, Israeli forces have responded with brutality, including ongoing assaults on worshippers at Al Aqsa Mosque wounding hundreds and killing many, including children.
Luton mosques and local organisations are organising a solidarity demonstration, outside the town hall at 3.30pm on Friday 14th May. We will be raising our voice against the planned evictions of Palestinian families in Jerusalem, condemning attacks on worshippers at al Aqsa mosque and raising concern about the flagrant violation of human rights and international law.
The UK government must take immediate action and stop allowing Israel to act with impunity. It must demand an end to current proceedings to evict these families, and start holding Israel accountable for all its actions ,which contribute to the crime of apartheid. This includes through implementing sanctions, and banning the import of goods from Israel’s illegal settlements.
In the face of these brutal crimes, we can’t remain silent! Come together to raise your voice for justice.
SAVE SHEIKH JARRAH!
