1.  What can we do at the time of Coronavirus? – #FlyTheFlag for Palestine this #AlQudsDay2020 / #NakbaDay

This Al-Quds Day, when it is unlikely anyone can go out to protest, IHRC and other organisations* are calling on you to fly a Palestinian flag in your window or on your car to show your support for the people of Palestine.

  • Please fly your flag for the last ten days of Ramadan. 
  • You can download and print an A4 version here, OR,
  • you can buy a larger cloth flag from the IHRC Bookshop here
  • You can also add the flag to your social media profiles. Images to be provided soon.
  • Please take a photo and tweet it @ihrc #FlyTheFlag #AlQudsDay2020 or email us info[AT]ihrc.org.
  • Please watch and share this video on the campaign. 

Please remember that the situation for many Palestinians at the time of this pandemic is dire, with limited access to medical facilities and protective equipment. You can find a curated list of articles from various sources on Twitter @Pal_Int and on Facebook on the Palestine Internationalist account.

TWEET ABOUT Al-Quds Day and FREEDOM for PALESTINE. Once you’ve put your flag up, take a picture and send it to us @IHRC using the hashtags #FlyTheFlag #AlQudsDay2020. Tell others to take up the cause by using the hashtag #FlyTheFlag #AlQudsDay2020 and linking to this page. 

2. Share pro-Palestinian art and poetry

IHRC is also asking that you share your art and poetry through social media – in whatever way you feel you can best help. Tweet us @IHRC with the hashtag #AlQudsDay2020 your poetry and artwork!
