TAKE ACTION! Ask your MP to sign Early Day Motion 225 on international law and trade with illegal Israeli settlements. This is another way that constituents can inform their MPs about the issues that they care about. At the heart of this is that Israel is committing war crimes and our government is not calling Israel to account for these violations which makes the UK complicit. The EDM is found here.

Early Day Motions (EDMs) are used by MPs in the Commons to draw the attention of the House to an issue, event or campaign. By attracting the signatures of other MPs, they can be used to demonstrate the level of parliamentary support for a cause or point of view. They are useful when applying for a debate in parliament.

For more information see ICAHD UK’s post on writing to your MP about the UN’s list of 112 companies that work in the illegal settlements which includes reference to JCB machines that are used to demolish Palestinian homes.

Contact details for your MP may be found here.
