Palestine Support Campaign



Stores such as Marks and Spencer continue to trade millions of pounds worth of Israeli goods, providing economic support to the Israeli government; whilst the Israeli government illegally occupies Palestinian territory, builds an ‘apartheid wall’, and destroys homes, land and lives daily. Products grown or manufactured in the Occupied Territories by illegal settlers are labelled “made in Israel”.

Show your support for the Palestinian people by refusing to buy Israeli goods. Put pressure on British business and the British government to refuse to trade with Israel.

Contact Nottingham Palestine Support Campaign: nottmpsc@yahoo.co.uk


Prisoner Support Group



"In the corporate war against Earth, sometimes prison becomes the price we pay for placing the laws of nature above those of corrupt governments. If we're fortunate enough to not yet be making that sacrifice, then we most certainly have an obligation to support those who are" - former ALF prisoner Rod Coronado.

"Prison is designed to isolate people from their family, friends and community; we can break the isolation by writing to people on the inside and showing solidarity". "They're in there for us ... we're out here for them".

If you are interested in co-ordinating letter writing sessions, and/or other prisoner support, please contact the Centre.
