Follow the link below and write to your MP urging them (using the sample letter below) to insist that Prime Minister Gordon Brown acts to ensure:
• An immediate end to Israel's military assault on Gaza
• An immediate end to the blockade and siege on Gaza
• An end to Israel's violations of international law
• An end to Israeli occupation
Please use the sample letter below:
As you know the people of Gaza are being bombarded by a devastating onslaught from Israeli F16s, tanks and warships.
Nearly 400 people have been killed in three days and while we deplore the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel this can in no way justify the systematic slaughter being conducted by Israel on a captive unarmed civilian population.
This slaughter follows almost two years of blockade which has prevented essential supplies of food, fuel and medicines from reaching the Palestinian people in Gaza and causing untold suffering.
I believe that the people of Britain are horrified by the current situation and would like to ask that you request the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, to say exactly what measures the government is taking to ensure an immediate end to the military attacks on Gaza and an immediate end to the siege as the first step in ensuring that international law is upheld in relation to the rights of the Palestinian people.
I would also like you to press the Foreign Secretary to take steps to ensure that the favourable status of Israel in the EU, including the EU trade agreement is removed immediately since it is a country which is violating international law and I do not wish my taxes to contribute to the economy of such a state.
