The snap General Election falls in the same week as the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War. While we go to the polls in the UK, Israel will be marking 50 years since the country’s survival was ensured in battle. Since then, however, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has raged on, and Israel’s future is threatened by 50 years of military occupation of the West Bank and the continued lack of progress towards a political resolution between Israel and the Palestinians.
At Yachad, we’re committed to a safe and secure Israel at peace with the Palestinians. That’s why, in the run-up to June 2017, we’re asking you to do 3 things:
- Sign our open statement on the 50th anniversary of the 6 Day War
- Email your parliamentary candidates to make sure they know about the 50th anniversary and ask how they intend to promote a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Parliament. You can read responses from candidates that we have already received here.
- Meet your MP after June 8th to discuss how they can represent your views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Parliament
