There will also be petitions for you all to sign up to regarding house demolitions, the treatment of Palestinian prisoners and a Solidarity with Nonviolent resistence petition. These petitions will also come with their own information leaflets for you to take away with you to help raise awareness among your friends and community.
Our society is also currently fundraising to help keep it afloat and to ensure we can secure Norman Finkelstein for his February tour in the UK and Northern Ireland in 2012.
Please come along and enjoy taking part with us there will be events occuring throughout the day include the raising of a Palestinian flag on the Students Union premises and a Solidarity gathering in support of the Holy Land Trusts events in Manger Square Bethlehem.
