National March for Palestine - Saturday 8th June

Head Office Circular No: NP/141/24




5th June 2024


Dear Colleague


National March for Palestine - Saturday 8th June


Join the Palestine Solidarity Campaign on Saturday 8th June for another National March for Palestine to protest the continued violence, bombardment and siege in Gaza. 


The National March will begin to assemble at 12:30pm noon at Russell Square before Marching to Whitehall for a rally.


RMT, alongside other trade unions have been consistent in condemning the atrocious violence, 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 ongoing situation in the region. 


RMT is dismayed that violence and the bombardment and siege of Gaza continues and with Israel now launching an assault on Rafah 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.


Trade Union bloc


There will be a Trade Union Bloc on the National March for Palestine that will begin forming up from 12:00pm, Russell Square, Corner of Bedford Place, WC1B 4HP.Please bring flags and banners.


Branch Affiliation


I would also encourage all RMT Branches to affiliate to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and support their campaigns and you can find out more information on how to do that here


Yours sincerely


Michael Lynch
General Secretary
