Nov 26th fundraiser – huge thanks

On Sunday we had the most special night raising nearly £5000 for emergency relief in Gaza.

Wonderful solidarity singing followed by fabulous food – some cooked by the amazing Sahar and some donated by generous business people around Sheffield and Rotherham ( see below)

We also showed a moving tribute to the samud of Gaza’s fishing community who in spite of the threat from Israeli gunboats would go out every day to fish. Thy have of course now lost all their boats and fishing equipment after the bombing of Gaza port.

The money raised means nearly 12000 people can be given meals.

UN Day of solidarity with Palestine fundraiser, Nov 26th

UN International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian People is Nov 29th. How they need that now!

Prices of food in Gaza are now extremely high. The work Musheir El Farra, chair of Sheffield PSC, managed to do on the ground while he was trapped in Gaza, has enabled volunteers to access supplies and so far 1831 families have had parcels of food or blankets or clothes.

Every £400 pounds raised will feed 1000 people with rice and lentils.

Sheffield demands “Ceasefire Now!”

On November 11th, at lest 10 coaches, put on by various organisations, went from Sheffield to London; meanwhile at least 1500 people marched from Ellesmere Green to the Town Hall to demand a ceasefire and an end to occupation preceded by two minutes of silence at Ellesmere Green.

Some very good speeches from people from many different communities exposing the lie of this being a hate march.

We were lucky to start the rally with some magnificent and emotional singing from different Sheffield choirs.

The children are always ours

It was magnificent to welcome back Musheir El Farra who, with his son Qasem, did such a lot of amazing work while they were trapped in Gaza
