Israel’s recent war on the people of Gaza has killed several hundreds, a large number of them children. Those who have survived are traumatised from the loss of loved ones. Sixty percent of the population is now living in poverty, thousands are malnourished, and more than a million are dependent on aid to survive.

Cambridge Stop the War is committed to helping the victims of Israeli aggression and occupation, and providing Cambridge residents with opportunities to show solidarity with the people of Palestine.
