100 years of dispossession

Faversham & Whitstable PSC members joined thousands of others in London on 4 November to mark 100 years since the Balfour Declaration.

The 1917 statement by the British government paved the way for the later creation of the state of Israel in Palestine, a crucial step in the dispossession and oppression of the Palestinian people.

A disaster for Palestinian rights, the declaration’s centenary was nevertheless celebrated by the Prime Minister with an official dinner.

On the day of the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, the PSC published an open letter in The Guardian calling on the British government to take action to hold Israel accountable for it’s crimes under international law.
