Sign the petition: call for a ceasefire now

Your voice matters, and our collective voice is powerful.

Join us in calling for an immediate and lasting ceasefire.

  • Call for an end to the blockade that is preventing Gaza’s civilians from accessing food, fuel and water.
  • Call for the protection of all civilians, including the unconditional release of all hostages.
  • Call for a path to real and lasting peace for Palestinian and Israeli people.

By keeping the pressure up together we have the best chance of convincing the UK government and the international community to bring an end to this catastrophe.

The continuing bombardment of Gaza has made a full-scale humanitarian response impossible.

Although some aid has been allowed in, it is nowhere near enough for the 2.3 million people in desperate need of food, clean water, shelter and safety.

As soon as it is safe to do so our full response will include:

  • Supporting our partners — The Palestinian Medical Relief Society (PMRS), Juzoor, CFTA, and Palestinian Environmental Friends (PEF) — to respond in their communities
  • Providing people with clean water, sanitation and hygiene items
  • Rehabilitation of water and wastewater networks that have been destroyed in the bombing
  • Providing food and other essential household items for people who have lost their homes or their incomes

We are looking for a ceasefire. We are looking for humanitarian aid to support the resilience of the people in the Gaza Strip.”

Sign the letter: stop UK arms sales

The UK is supplying millions of pounds worth of arms to Israel, which could be used in the conflict to kill people or even commit war crimes. By providing arms and military support, the UK Government is complicit in this catastrophe. Stopping arms sales is an important step towards securing the permanent ceasefire that people need.

Please sign this open letter to Trade Secretary and Foreign Secretary. Join others in calling on the UK Government to stop arming Israel, immediately.
