Gaza - Stop the Massacre

WASHINGTON - Stop the War condemns the brutal massacre carried out today on unarmed protesters in Gaza by Israeli troops. These protesters are demanding the right to return to their historic homes which they were forced from during the Nakba 70 years ago.

The deaths coincide with the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem and its recognition by Donald Trump as Israel's capital. This is against international law and agreements, and a deliberate provocation to the Palestinians who are forced to endure occupation, illegal settlement and brutal repression.
Lindsey German, Stop the War Convenor, said "This massacre should be immediately met with international condemnation and with protests in solidarity. We demand that Theresa May's government condemns the actions of Trump and Netanyahu in the strongest terms and that the British government stops all arms sales to Israel." 
 
There will be an emergency protest tomorrow at 17:30 opposite Downing Street.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.

Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the "war on terror". Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere.
