We are the Oxford branch of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
It’s worth checking out our pages on Facebook and Twitter.

If you want to collaborate with like-minded people to take action for justice, you are warmly invited to drop by and have a chat. You can find us every Saturday on Cornmarket Street, check in at our next members’ meeting to see what we’re about, or you can contact us in writing.

Final words from @SKinnock "It is time for the British government to step up to the plate, to have tangible action. Hand wringing ... will no longer cut it, we need to see action and we need to see it now."

.@SKinnock sums up:
1) UAE deal has not stopped annexation
2) Trump plan must be taken off the table, not a viable basis for negotiations
3) UK must recognise Palestine on 1967 lines
4) Banning settlement product trade needed
5) Need to act vs UK companies involved in settlements

Bottom line: Minister puts onus on the (occupied, dispossessed, fragmented, oppressed - my words not his!) Palestinian people to "engage" with Israel/USA etc & put forward a "counter-offer" on the table. Many earlier contributions have pointed out the problems with this position.

On UK businesses operating in settlements: UK gives guidance, but it is up to individual businesses. Government "does not support boycotts" but "understands the concerns of people who do not wish to purchase goods from settlements" so agreed to "voluntary guidance" on labelling.

.@WayneDavid_MP: A 2SS "won't just happen" - settlements are a barrier, in breach of GCIV, demolition of Palestinian homes is deplorable.

Says Trump plan is not a meaningful basis for negotiations.

.@WayneDavid_MP: Netanyahu claims annexation is "still on the table", asks whether the foreign secretary has said emphatically to Israel that the halting of plans is not enough, but rather they should be "irreversibly cancelled"
