Legal Case Against Israeli Violence In London

Message from ISM London

Dear Everyone, This is a message from our ISM support group in London. Please consider reading. George

Message begins

I'm writing to let you know that there is a legal case in progress in the UK alleging that the Israeli army broke various internationals laws and agreements in injuring Internationals on ISM demonstrations etc.

It would be very helpful if you could let any British people who are injured know this, and that they can join in with this if they want.

The aim of the legal action is to use it as a way of exposing the Israeli army's disregard for law and human rights towards everyone, not just internationals.

If any British ISMers want details of the lawyers carrying this out they can contact ISM London at It would be particularly useful if this information could be given to the people injured at the wall demonstration near Tulkarem last week.

Alternatively, if you are willing to give me their registration contact details I can get in touch with them, or you could send these details to ISM London for the attention of Karen. Finally, I hope everyone at ISM and Rapprochement are as well as can be expected under the circumstances and that I see you all againone day!

Regards, Sarah
