Stand with Gaza - All Scotland Demo in Edinburgh and solidarity action in Aberdeen

There will be an all-Scotland demo in Edinburgh on Saturday 9th Aug, in response to a call  from Palestine for an international day of action.

"As we face the full might of Israel’s military arsenal, funded and supplied by the United States and European Union, we call on civil society and people of conscience throughout the world to pressure governments to sanction Israel and implement a comprehensive arms embargo immediately. WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR CHARITY. WE ARE DEMANDING SOLIDARITY, BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT UNTIL ISRAEL IS ISOLATED AND SANCTIONED, THESE HORRORS WILL BE REPEATED."
