OneVoice is the fastest growing Israeli-Palestinian conflict resolution group. It has over 350,000 grassroots members; mainly young Israelis and Palestinians aged 18-35, and a Board of supporters from the Islamic Chief Justice of Palestine to Israeli Knesset members. Today they need your support – and you can help.

In the UK Wednesday 25th July 2007 at 6 pm, hundreds of students, young professionals and families from all faiths and backgrounds will gather on Abingdon Green opposite Parliament to record their messages of support to the Israeli and Palestinian people in the gaze of the international press.

Beginning at 6pm opposite Parliament on Abingdon Green, Department for International Development Minister Shahid Malik and Shadow Foreign Office Minister David Liddington are leading an event to send a message from the UK to the people of the Middle East.

60 MPs and Peers, International media, and hundreds of members of the public are coming to send their own personal messages that will be displayed at simultaneous rallies led by Israeli and Palestinian members of the OneVoice Movement.

They are making a move to invigorate the peace process from the grassroots – they may not like or love each other, chances are they disagree on history and politics but they understand that without a Two State solution there is no peace for either people and so they are standing, inspired by Martin Luther King, Gandhi and others to catalyse that change from the grassroots. 400,000 have joined so far and the numbers are growing and growing.

Turn up. Let your voice be heard. We spend too much time talking amongst ourselves – let’s give our support to the people who matter most in this conflict.

Wednesday July 25th, Abingdon Green, opposite the House of Lords, closest tube: Westminster.
