Weekend of solidarity action with Palestine - please join us

Despite the "ceasefire", Aberdeen Trades Union Council continues to call urgently for solidarity with Palestine. We therefore call on all our delegates, associates, their friends and families in Aberdeen and North East Scotland to come out once again, as they did last week, and stand with Palestine.

Please gather outside the Alhikmah Mosque (on Nelson Street) at 4pm where we will march peacefully together to Marischal Square (outside Marischal College), for a rally at approximately 4.30pm. Please bring signs, flags and banners, observe social distancing and wear a mask.

This will be part of a weekend of events in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

On Saturday May 22nd, from 12noon, SPSC will hold a solidarity stall near Union Square and Aberdeen train station. All are welcome to join and support our engagement with the public.

The Alhikmah Mosque will hold an all day event and exhibition on Sunday May 23rd, with speakers from 2pm - further details on the poster below. 

Following the end of the exhibition on Sunday we will gather outside the Alhikmah Mosque (on Nelson Street) at 4pm and march peacefully together to Marischal Square (outside Marischal College), for a rally at approximately 4.30pm. Please bring signs, flags and banners, observe social distancing and wear a mask.

The Nakba of 1948, the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, has continued for 73 years without ceasefire. There have been 54 years of brutal Israeli occupation without any kind of ceasefire. Israeli settler colonialism and apartheid continues unabated, without ceasefire. For house demolitions, separation walls, humiliation at checkpoints, land grabs, water apartheid, administrative detention and political prisoners - there is no ceasefire.
