Today I will be joining demonstrators outside the Senedd, to protest against the visit to the National Assembly by the Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor. I will be demonstrating instead of attending the private reception because Mr. Prosor has clearly indicated that he intends to "utilise any platform for PR work". These words should alert us to the fact that Wales' democratic institution will today be used as a publicity platform for a state that is currently in contravention of 65 UN resolutions. The Palestinians are not in contravention of any UN resolution. Until these international demands are met, representatives of the Israeli government cannot expect to be welcomed to Wales. Today I would ask anyone sympathetic to the plight of the Palestinians, who are a stateless and oppressed nation, to join us in solidarity with them.
Where: outside the National Assembly
When: 5pm today
Who: Palestine Solidarity Campaign
