PSC challenges Government

Message from PSC:PSC logo image

Dear Friend,

We’ve won the right to challenge the Government in the Supreme Court over ethical divestment of local pension schemes.

If we win, this will be a huge victory not just for the global BDS movement, but for all those who believe in freedom of expression, democracy and justice.

But it will cost us £60k to get there. That’s why I’m writing to you today to launch our 2019 Fighting Fund appeal – please read on and give whatever you can.

Chip in to the 2019 Fighting Fund now!

CALLS TO ACTION
ACT NOW! Make a stand to end Modern Slavery
The International Labour Organization’s Protocol on Forced Labour could restore hope and freedom to millions of people trapped in modern slavery. But first it has to be ratified by countries around the world. Join 880 other supporters in the UK, including trade unionists, who have already signed up for the campaign calling on governments to ratify the Protocol by the end of 2018. (The UK has already ratified it, but there many more nations to go!)

Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) Campaign: Emergency Appeal

Message from PSC:

The Nobel-nominated BDS movement’s co-founder, Omar Barghouti, on why you should support PSC’s vital campaigns by donating to the urgent appeal.

In June of last year we took the government to the High Court and won an important victory throwing out regulations designed to stop Local councils from divesting their pension funds from companies supporting Israel’s illegal occupation. In early June, the Court of appeal overturned the ruling.

This has generated significant new legal costs that PSC must now pay. We will also be seeking the right to appeal at the Supreme Court, so that we can consider continuing the legal fight against the Government. Whether we can or not entirely depends on your support.

The need for a strong Palestine solidarity movement in the UK is more vital than ever. Please give what you can – whether it be £5, £10, or £100 – to support our work.

Please give as generously as you can.
