With more than 5,000 Palestinians injured and over100 killed by Israeli forces in the last six weeks, Women in Black in London again called on our own government to stop selling arms to Israel, and to work towards a just peace.

Responding to hostility from some members of the public, we continue to emphasise that “Our organisation Women in Black was founded in Israel in 1988 by Jewish and Palestinian women uniting for an end to the Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza”, and that “many Israeli Jews today likewise oppose their government’s current policies and call for justice for Palestinians.” Although we do not aim to collect money on our vigils, several people made donations, which have been sent to Medical Aid for Palestinians.
