"We demand health and dignity."

Sign up and take action

Life under Israel’s military occupation means dealing with constant restrictions to the basic freedoms which should guarantee our health and dignity.

Our day-to-day movement is restricted by checkpoints and permits, we are denied access to adequate healthcare, and we are frequently at risk of being killed or injured in conflict or violent attacks from settlers.

This year marks 50 years of this occupation and 10 years of Israel’s suffocating closure of Gaza.

Health and dignity are not gifts to be earned; they are basic rights. They are not denied to us by natural disaster, but instead by a prolonged, man-made crisis; the longest military occupation in the world today.

International support can help us attain these rights.

The UK Government continues to wield influence on the world stage, and has a historical responsibility towards the rights of Palestinians. It can, and must, support a brighter future for Palestinians based on humanitarian principles and international law.

Please help us call on the UK government to support Palestinian health and dignity by taking action to end Israel’s occupation.

SIGN UP AND TAKE ACTION

We will deliver a joint call between Palestinian and British people to the UK Government later this year, demanding an end to the occupation and the blockade of Gaza.

To join our call for health and dignity, sign up here.

"I demand health and dignity for Palestinians. The UK government must do more to bring an end to the occupation of Palestinian territory."
