Come and meet us in the briefing room W1 from 3 to 6pm.
The lobby of Parliament will be followed by a meeting in Committee room 12 at 7pm.
Palestinians are facing a humanitarian catastrophe following the blockade imposed by the EU, US and Israel, suffering what the World Bank describes as an 'unprecedented economic depression'. Access to food, water and electricity is severely restricted in the Gaza Strip. Israel is assaulting basic democratic rights by imprisoning elected representatives of the Palestinian people, launching military assaults on the West Bank and Gaza which have killed over 260 Palestinians since June, and continuing to build the Apartheid Wall and settlements.
The lobby of Parliament is taking place on the UN's international day for Palestine. We are calling urgently for everyone to contact their MP to tell the British government to work to end the blockade on the Palestinian people, act on the decision of the Inter-Parliamentary Union to release the Palestinian parliamentarians held by Israel, and to end its arms trade with Israel.
The purpose of the lobby is to meet your MP and explain to them why you feel that these issues must be addressed immediately, calling on them to take action.
Please come along, whether you have spoken to your MP before, or have never contacted them before. Showing there is strong support for Palestinian human rights makes a difference!
To lobby your MP:
Firstly, contact your MP as soon as possible and arrange a meeting with them on Wednesday 29 November. If you don't know who your MP is, go to www.faxyoump.com or phone 020 7219 3000. Briefly explain to your MP what you would like to speak to them about.
Secondly, please let us know when you have an appointment with your MP so we can co-ordinate with other people in the same constituency - phone 020 7700 6192 or email email@example.com
Even if you do not manage to contact your MP in advance, you can still try to meet them on the day - just come along to the lobby and ask for a 'green card' which you then fill in to request that your MP meets you.
We will be able to brief you on how to lobby your MP on 29 November in the House of Commons.
Contact your MP today to make an appointment for the 29th November.
