4 photos from Palestine solidarity stall

There was a stall for Palestine in Edinburgh’s Princes Street on Saturday 12th September. On a fine, sunny, autumn day there was a lively rapport with the Edinburgh community and many members of the public signed petitions and some 800 leaflets were given out. 4 photos of the day are attached.

Contact Info: Sofia (07931) 200 361

Saturday 19th September 2009:
There will be a stall for Palestine in Princes Street near the junction of Princes Street and Waverley Bridge. The stall runs from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.

Thursday 1st October 2009:
Five members of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign will attend a hearing in Edinburgh Sheriff Court at 9.30am.

Five members of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign are charged with ‘racially aggravated conduct’ following a protest against the Israeli siege of Gaza. They interrupted a performance during the 2008 Edinburgh International Festival by an Israeli musical ensemble, the Jerusalem Quartet, whose admirers had written of them that, ‘holding a rifle in one hand and a violin in the other is the ultimate Zionist statement’. The four enjoyed the double official status of ‘Cultural Ambassadors’ of the State of Israel and ‘Distinguished IDF Musicians’

The charges against them are absurd and the action will hopefully fail. Please come along and show some solidarity, even if it is only for a short time.
