Together with community colleagues, we invite you to participate in sharing the message “No to rockets, Yes to peace” this Sunday 16th May, 10am to 12noon. 

Israel is facing an unprecedented barrage of rockets from terrorist organisations, with over 2000 already fired. These rockets are targeting the Southern communities of Israel, as well as key population centres like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  

Tragically, a number of Israeli citizens have been killed in recent days. Despite Israel’s best efforts to minimise casualties among non-combatants, Palestinian civilians have also died. We mourn the loss of all innocent life and pray for the recovery of all those who have been injured.  

Israel is facing a serious threat. As Israel is bombarded with missiles from Gaza and malicious lies are spread online, we invite you to send a message of solidarity to Israel and to share our collective wish for peace. We will also show our friends and neighbours across the UK that supporters of Israel want peace.

We call on our community to show their support for Israel by taking part in a Covid-safe demonstration of solidarity accessible to all. We ask you to gather outside, either in a garden or somewhere near your home, with either a group of  up to six people or two households maintaining social distancing, to take a picture with the attached graphic.
