A great success with over 90 people attending. A very good speech from the Godalming mayor as well.

The PSC Branch Forum was held in Manchester last Saturday. It was a very successful forum that provided for a lot information and discussion. This is a brief summary of the event but I am sure that the PSC will provide a  more thorough report in due course.

There is a number of links in the email. If they don't appear as links then the same text is available on the home page of our website at www.westsurreypsc.org.uk


It was very motivating to see the amount of work done by different branches. Halifax Friends of Palestine was once again one of the branches at the forefront of this with some inspirational work. Read about their Discover Palestine Event here.  They had one of their embroidered wall hangings on display at the forum - very impressive. I was also taken by the range of different groups of people involved in the Discover Palestine event.

 

Hilary Ruqia John and George did this at 2pm in a pedestrian area of the main commercial mall, brought a few placards. Many leaflets were passed. Some interesting incidents:

Two security men from nearby shops asked us to move out of the canopy by their shops - we moved about 3 m. Hilary had a conversation with a young man, he left ... came back and tore up the placard she was holding before anybody could intervene then ran away. John and sympathetic passers-by gave chase but he escaped. Hilary with great sangfroid continued her work. A man of about 30 with an Israeli accent approached George, read the leaflet, said he was on the opposite side, did we have a licence? G told him it was not necessary for leafleting. He then rushed off waving a mobile “to call the police”, but never came back. John thinks it may be the same person who tackled him too on similar terms.

A man who had a stall by us said he would be very happy to have some leaflets available for his shop, so we supplied him.

 




The Woking Mela at Shah Jahan Mosque provided another opportunity for us to raise awareness in the local community of Palestinian issues.
