2.    Summary

In response to the pro-Israel demonstration being held on Sunday 02 June 2013 at Trafalgar Square, the Islamic Human Rights Commission is asking supporters to join a vigil to show solidarity with Palestine and outrage over Israeli war crimes.

3.    Background

On Sunday 02 June 2013, hundreds of supporters of Israel will join a parade and rally in Trafalgar Square London to celebrate 65 years of murder, rape, pillage and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people by the occupying forces (Israel).

At the same time, human rights defenders will hold a peaceful vigil commemorating 65 years since the Palestinian Nakba in which over 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled from their homeland over 400 Palestinian towns and cities were destroyed. Since the Nakba, we have witnessed 65 years of occupation, genocidal acts, and violations of international law and human rights.
