Download: IWD programme in the North
Our campaigning – on BDS, against the ridiculous ruling by the co-op bank, against the equally ridiculous and insipid declaration that PSC is a terrorist organisation, to increase awareness of the injustices suffered by Palestinian people – all these things need funds.
And so does our direct support for Palestinian people – whether through the children’s projects or the scholarship fund.
Please find out how here : SPSC Appeal – Version 2016-2.1 and act now.
Through film, music, drama, poetry, workshops, photography and women’s personal accounts, we will explore the daily trauma of life for Palestinian women. We’ll also be celebrating how they survive and thrive against all the odds – supporting each other, their families and their communities, by being politically and creatively active.
Running for a week, from Saturday 5 March Sunday 13 March, this programme has been devised by Northern Women for Palestine, a group of activists from towns and cities across the north of England committed to campaigning for justice for Palestinians.
The Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund has published its annual newsletter. Read about the students we sponsor – about their families, their lives and how important it is for them to be able to study at university. It is inspiring.
Thank you to all our supporters – we couldn’t do it without you.
On Saturday, Sheffield PSC supporters make sure that they cannot simply brush this under the carpet and have it forgotten.
Why not join us in the right to roam walk in 2016?
We are raising funds for:
Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund and Children’s Projects in Gaza
We will be starting this leg on April 25th 2016 where we finished last year, at Morvich; and we will be arriving at the end of our Right2Roam Walk, at John-o-Groats, on Saturday 21 May. The full itinerary is here.
Solidarity & fund raising walks along the R2R route (e.g. Bristol & Edale) are being organised for the final day
As in previous years, there will also be a solidarity walk in Gaza, also the same day: we will all be with the people of Palestine in spirit even though they are unable to be with us.
The charges against those protesters at Elbit have now been dropped by the prosecution and they do not have to go to court next week.
Let’s get that factory closed down!
As many as thirty protesters gathered outside the Co-Operative Bank on Pinstone Street in Sheffield today to protest against their politically inspired action to close solidarity accounts.
Ranging from campaigning account of the Sheffield PSC to donation funds such as the Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund, the claim has been that funds will go to ‘terrorist organisations’ as this is a conflict zone. No mention made of funds going to Israel which is also in the conflict zone.
