Event Alert: UK – Al-Quds Day 2010 – 11 days to go!
The Annual Al-Quds Day Demonstration and Rally takes place in London on Saturday 4th September 2010. As usual, this will be a major national event with thousands of people coming from all over the country to show their solidarity with the people of Palestine and oppressed people everywhere. And like last year, we also expect a counter demonstration from Zionist and Fascist groups, so it is all the more important that we have the highest possible turn-out.

This year’s Yaum al-Quds comes at a time when the Palestinian people are going through particular problems, not least the continued siege on Gaza, the cowardly attack on peace activists trying to provide aid to them, and the unrelenting persecution of the Israeli occupation. Given the grave circumstances facing us, we are obliged to stand for those oppressed more so today than at any time in the past.

This year’s Al-Quds Day demonstration is expected to be the largest ever in London, sending a resounding message of solidarity to the Palestinians. But that requires both that people contribute to the preparation for the event, and turn out on the day.  Please help us on both counts, in particular by distributing  flyers and other advertising material to your friends, families and local community, and arranging for a many people as possible to come to the event.

Those who would like to help are encouraged to do the following:

1.    Distribute flyers (available from IHRC).
2.    Make use of websites and email lists to spread the word. (poster available here: Poster)
3.    Promote the video advertisement (video available here)
4.    Arrange coaches from your locality to the event. IHRC is happy to provide assistance to make this feasible. (Audio file advert is available on request)
5.    Contact your local Radio Ramadan for advertising slots and promotion.
6.    Forward this email to your friends,  family and local community.
