On Sunday November 5th The Big Ride for Palestine organised rides right across the country. One of them in Sheffield. Over 100 riders took part and encountered great joy from passers by and motorists some of the dancing as the riders went past.
Excellent rallies in Sheffield then in Rotherham braving the November rain demanding ceasefire now and an end to the occupation, highlighting the hypocrisy of the western powers, and chanting not in our name
From October 13th Musheir El Farra chair of Sheffield PSC has sent reports of support he has distributed thanks to your efforts.

UPDATE November 20th:
Prices of food in Gaza are now extremely high. The work Musheir has done on the ground has enabled volunteers to access supplies and so far 1831 families have had parcels of food or blankets or clothes.
Amazing achievement yesterday at Sheffield council meeting through the combined pressure of wonderful work by Sheffield Greens and the relentless, continued protests, letter writing etc by Sheffielders.
The council voted almost unanimously ( only one vote against?) for an immediate ceasefire and a statement that Starmer was wrong to speak about the right of Israel to withold water, food and electricity and should retract.
They also voted to call on UK govt to cease all arms sales to Israel, and to consider joining the Coalition.
The chief exec has to send the whole motion to UK government. Let’s hope that letter is published!
