Jerusalem: not yours to give away

Support and solidarity for Palestine from all sections of Sheffield communtities
Support and solidarity for Palestine from all sections of Sheffield communtities

A great rally  on the City Hall Steps on Saturday yesterday, 9th December.

Over 100 people there – including many different faces and many students. The banner – which read ‘Trump: Jerusalem is not yours to give away‘ made a great focus and made it really clear to all why we were there.

Amongst those holding the banner were a man from Syria, a man from Algeria, a young Yemeni woman, a British Jew, a Palestinian, two students – Sheffield’s humanity in action.

There were some excellent speeches from students, from a representative from  Labour Friends of Palestine Pearn,who has just returned from her first visit to Palestine, and a beautiful song by a Yemeni teenager were highlights .

So the clear thing here is, just like Palestine itself was not Britain to give away, so Jerusalem is not Trump’s to dispose of.

Manchester – Balfour

manchester  A group of Zionists wanted to celebrate 100 years since the Balfour Declaration.  We believe that the creation of a new Apartheid state is nothing to celebrate.  A group of us went from Sheffield.  One of our sisters fell and broke some bones in her wrist and shoulder. Our thoughts are with her.   We wish her a full recovery.

Join us this Friday 3rd November 5pm Sheffield Railway station.  Bring a light.
