5 Things to do NOW to Support Palestine

Updated: Jun 1

Here are 5 suggestions of things you can do RIGHT NOW to support the people of Palestine.


1.WRITE TO YOUR LOCAL MP

  • Find your local MP here

  • Introduce yourself, explain why you are writing and what you want them to do, then request a reply.

  • Ensure you include your name and address, or they are not obliged to respond.

  • Keep it friendly and polite

  • When they respond, reply and establish a relationship with your MP

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE if you are not sure what to write. Feel free to copy and paste or use as a template, the most important part is that you send something!


2.SIGN THE PETITION

  • Sign this petition for UK Government to formally recognise the State of Palestine

  • Share the petition with your network and encourage friends to sign

When a petition reaches more than 100.000 signatures, the issue HAS to be discussed in parliament. The more signatures, the stronger the message!


3.DONATE


Arguably the most vital help is financial support. Rain Crew suggest donating to The Freedom Theatre in Jenin Refugee Camp. They are a cultural resistance organisation, using theatre and the arts to resist the Israeli occupation and help the Palestinian people to tell their stories.



4.PROTEST

Protest are a great way to show your support, get motivated to do more and energise those that fight for Palestine every day.



5.EXCHANGE, LEARN & CONNECT


With so many different media outlets it can be hard to understand the situation in Palestine. We therefor encourage everyone to share information from reliable sources, discuss Palestine in your circle and educate yourself and others. Below you can find a list of books, videos and documentaries we recommend.


BOOKS:

On Palestine by Noam Chomsky & Ilan Pappe The Hundred Years War on Palestine by Rashid Khalidi Freedom is a Constant Struggle by Angela Davis The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Ilan Pappe Gaza in Crisis by Noam Chomsky & Ilan Pappe


DOCUMENTARIES: 5 Broken Cameras by Emad Burnat Jenin, Jenin by Mohammed Bakri Born in Gaza


VIDEOS: Israel and Palestine, A brief history by VOX Conflict explained by CrashCourse


Of course the most important part is to take action. So donate, write to your MP, sign the petition for Palestine to be officially recognised as a state, protest and share. If you have any questions about these steps, or have any comments or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
