TO ALL BRANCHES AND REGIONAL COUNCILS

 

27 September 2023

 

Dear colleague,

Palestine Solidarity Campaign - Protect the Right to Boycott Events 

The government has tabled an ‘anti-boycott bill’ that, if passed, could dramatically affect the ability for civil society organisations to campaign for social and climate justice in the UK and around the world.

 

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign is organising a few events to protest the Government’s Economic Activity of Public Bodies “Anti-Boycott” Bill including

 

Right To Boycott Online Rally – Tuesday 3rd October 6:30PM

 

Join PSC for an online rally against the anti-boycott bill. Hear from MPs and civil society groups about the threat the bill poses to our rights and how you can help stop it from becoming law.

 

John McDonnell MP, Caroline Lucas MP, Dr Philippa Whitford SNP MP and speakers from the Right to Boycott coalition including CND and Liberty will be speaking. 

 

Register HERE

 

Right to Boycott Day of Action - Saturday 7th October

 

Take action locally to defend the Right to Boycott! Join a protest, stall, or meeting happening in your area to show your opposition to the government’s undemocratic anti-boycott bill.
