Since the summer of 2014 there has been a seismic shift in public opinion on Palestine. And with that came a transformation in the influence we can have as a movement. Our goal is clear. We are fighting for freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians.

The UK Trade Union movement is a key component of that struggle for Palestinian freedom, and has played a crucial part in the last few years in growing the solidarity movement.

This conference will provide the space to explore new avenues and provide tools for activists to further our work for Palestine. With sessions on the current situation in Palestine, on how to take action on sanctions and divestment, on how to challenge the pro-Israel agenda and on the existing solidarity work Trade Unions in the UK are already engaged in, this conference will provide the space and opportunity for everybody who wishes to make further progress for Palestine in their unions and beyond.

This conference is for trade union members and activists in agreement with the aims and objectives of Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Supported by: Unite the Union, UNISON, TSSA, UCU.
