Senedd Gaza debate and demonstration tomorrow

The Assembly will debate the situation in the Gaza Strip tomorrow at 2:30pm. My colleague Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM has tabled a motion and will be leading the debate. Bethan Jenkins AM has tabled a Statement of Opinion, which we are hoping people will ask their Ams to sign:

End Israeli attacks on Gaza
The National Assembly for Wales calls on the Welsh Assembly Government to make an urgent public statement condemning the Israeli government's attacks on Gaza, and calls on the Welsh Assembly Government to echo demands made by the International community for an immediate ceasefire.

Before the debate, a rally will be held at 1pm on the steps of the Senedd, expressing solidarity with the people of Gaza. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Pity more AMs aren't speaking out against the atrocities in Gaza inflicted by the Israeli government on the people of Palestine.

We need people in positions of authority counteracting the Israeli government's well-funded PR machine.
