I just sent an email to my MP calling on them to call for an end to Israel’s massacre in Gaza, and for sanctions on Israel. It only took a minute using a model letter - please take the time to do the same.
All you have to do is visit http://act.palestinecampaign.org/lobby/sanctions and put in your postcode - easy as that.
Fantastic article on the current bombardment of Gaza:
ending with “What will be the end of it? There will be no end, just round after round, unless a political solution is adopted.
This would mean: stop the rockets and the bombs, end the Israeli blockade, allow the people of Gaza to live a normal life, further Palestinian unity under a real unity government, conduct serious peace negotiations, MAKE PEACE.
Latest casualty figures: Palestinians in Gaza killed - 405, 2400 injured. Israelis killed - 18 soldiers, two civilians”
The UN Security Council has called for a ceasefire in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict centered on Gaza.
A council statement approved on Saturday by all 15 members calls for de-escalation of the violence, restoration of calm and a resumption of direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians aimed at achieving a comprehensive peace agreement based on a two-state solution. Full story here

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.
Would rather be right there….
