Wolverhampton Palestine Solidarity Campaign
There is a regional march for Gaza this Saturday 26th July assembling for 2pm at Farm park, Sparkbrook, marching to the Birmingham Mailbox for a rally outside the BBC offices to deliver a letter of complaint to the BBC. The protest is supported by community organisations in Birmingham and by pro Palestinian supporters in areas surrounding Birmingham, including Walsall and Wolverhampton.
Mobilise your friends, families and colleagues to come to the protest and to convince the International Community to take positive action for Palestine.
We have invited Salma Yaqoob, all the Birmingham Members of Parliament and Councillors and Midland MEPS to the protest. All of you should also invite your political representatives to protest.
