British Parliamentarians send letter to the Foreign Secretary: Pressure Israel to stop evictions

81 British parliamentarians representing all parties within the House of Commons and the House of Lords signed a letter to the British Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, asking that the British government must do everything in its power to prevent the mass forced evictions and dispossession of Palestinian families from their homes in Jerusalem. This letter goes beyond the usual words of condemnation and states that “All measures should be considered including reducing diplomatic engagement and banning trade in settlement products in full conformity with international law obligations in order to challenge the settler economy that profits from the occupation.”

Read the letter and find out whether your MP was a signatory. If so, please write to express gratitude for this support. However, if your MP’s name does not appear, then write requesting an opinion on this position because our government has a responsibility to ensure that international law is respected. Please keep up the pressure.
