Peace, Justice and Equal Rights in Palestine/Israel

Our Vision: Lasting peace with justice, security and equal rights for Palestinians and Israelis alike.

Our Mission: Acknowledging Britain’s historic and continuing responsibilities, we work through education and advocacy to advance equal rights for all in Palestine/Israel, regardless of race or creed. We raise public awareness of the issue in Britain. We seek to persuade our Parliament and Government to demand that the rule of law and fundamental human rights, including the right to self-determination and the implementation of international law, are upheld in Palestine/Israel.  Our Government recognised the State of Israel in 1950. We urge it to recognise the State of Palestine now, as a step towards equality and an end to the occupation which began in 1967.
