Promoting the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC)

I went to an excellent Trade Union Conference for Palestine on Saturday just gone, representing the UNISON NEC. It was organized by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) and as I have been invovled in solidarity with Palestine for ten years now, I was proud to go as a delegate for my union. 

We discussed a load of different ways to work together to strengthen what remais the major internaitonal issue of our day and shared a variety of experiences. I emphasised the need to make more prominent the PSC on our own union's websites and to vary our ways of reaching out to members, and not leaving this issue to the union tops - encouraging involvement of the grass roots - so the least I could do is practice what I preach... 

Is your branch affiliated, are you a member? If not, why not?
The PSC campaigns for peace & justice for Palestinians, in support of international law and human rights & against all racism. Help us to build a new mass anti Apartheid movement for Palestine.

PSC is an independent, non-governmental and non-party political organisation with members from many communities across Britain, and increasingly throughout the world. PSC represents people in Britain from all faiths and political parties, who have come together to work for peace and justice for the Palestinian people.  PSC is opposed to all forms of racism, including anti-Jewish prejudice and Islamophobia.

Who do we work with?
PSC works with students, faith groups, trade unions and many other campaigning, cultural and political organisations in Britain, Europe and worldwide.

If you are a member of a trade union then please join the campaign and affiliate your region and local branch. if you are a member of a union not on the list of national affiliates above then please encourage your union to affiliate to the Campaign and encourage individual union members to become members of PSC. Please download an invitation to affiliate and an affiliation form. If you would like more information about affiliating to PSC contact us.
