I have been horrified to witness the unravelling of the situation in the Gaza Strip over the last two days. 300 hundred people are dead. Israel is bombing an enclosed territory of 1.5million people, many of whom are refugees.

Please take action by:
- Writing to your MP through asking the UK government to put pressure on Israel and Hamas to stop the violence.
- Visit and sign the petition calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.
- Attend a demonstration - some information here
- Boycott Israeli goods, and tell them you are doing so by writing to the Israeli ambassador:
Ambassador Ron Prosor
2 Palace Green
W8 4QB

I hope people are attending local vigils where possible. On Thursday night a visit was held in Oxford city centre. Visit to see a video of it.
