Ahed Tamimi to Join the Palestine Demonstration Tomorrow


The Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi, famous for confronting Israeli soldiers in the Occupied Territories and serving eight months in an Israeli Prison, will be joining the national demonstration for Palestine tomorrow, Saturday 11 May.

Stop the War Convenor, Lindsey German, comments:

"We are delighted that Ahed Tamimi is joining us in London tomorrow. We have always shown solidarity with the Palestinians and she has become a symbol of the brutal treatment of children and young people at the hands of the Israelis. Thousands will march tomorrow to call for justice for the Palestinians at a time when there are growing threats to the Palestinians from Netanyahu and Trump and the threat of further war hangs over the Middle East."

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. Stop the War opposes the British establishment's disastrous addiction to war and its squandering of public resources on militarism. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues.
