National March for Palestine – Tomorrow – Saturday 3rd February
RMT, alongside other trade unions have been consistent in condemning the atrocious violence and for calling for an immediate and permanent ceasefire and for a lasting peace in both Israel and Palestine and we have always been conscious that we will have members who may have been personally impacted by the horrific situation in the region.
RMT is dismayed that violence and the bombardment and siege of Gaza continues. It is now more important than ever that we keep up the pressure with protests and campaigning happening across the UK demanding an immediate and permanent ceasefire.
On Saturday 3rd February Palestine Solidarity Campaign have once again called a National Demonstration in London which will begin to assemble at BBC, Portland Place, London, W1A 1AA, 12 noon before marching to Whitehall for a rally.
