Details of tonight's emergency vigil

Today 14th November 19:30 GMT

Location: Outside the Israeli embassy. 2 Palace Green Gardens, W8 4QB
 
Nearest Tube Station: High Street Kensington
 
Israel has launched an attack on Gaza firing missiles into one of the most densely populated areas in the world.  There are seven confirmed dead including two children, with the death toll rising.  Rinan Arafat a seven-year-old girl was just one of the children killed in the attack.   
 
IHRC is calling for a vigil outside the Israeli embassy to condemn these murderous actions.   The international community need to condemn this act of aggression and call for a halt in Israel’s murderous actions.  This is a continuation of acts of aggression against Gaza and Israel is now attempting to escalate the situation.  
 
IHRC has called on activists and campaigners to attend the peaceful vigil outside the Israeli embassy.
 
Chair of IHRC, Massoud Shadjareh said, “Israel has just murdered seven people in an illegal act of aggression. Enough is enough and people need to stand up to state terrorism.  This is an attempt to provoke Palestinians into reacting so Israel can manipulate the world into blaming the Palestinians for their own plight.”
