Protests in Plymouth, Exeter and London, Saturday 5th June

I just received this in the email so I decided to pass it on to everybody as is:



Dear all,
As the facts of Israel's pirate attack on the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza emerge, it is important to keep up pressure on those in the international community who aid and abet Israel in its crimes.
Demonstrations continue around the world, and these may soon  have even more cause for protest, as the MV Rache Corrie, the only boat left in the flotilla, is still on its way to Gaza, and Israel has said it will be intercepted (possibly tonight or tomorrow - Saturday 5th June).
There is a national demonstration in London tomorrow (see www.palestinecampaign.org.uk) and a local demonstration in Plymouth, organised by Plymouth PSC (Meet under the Big Screen in the Piazza on Armada Way (outside House of Fraser), Saturday 5th June 12pm - 2pm, flyers here: http://www.plymouthpsc.org.uk/docs/20100605_Demo_Flyer.docx
and  http://www.plymouthpsc.org.uk/docs/20100605_Demo_flyer.pub).
Exeter PSC will be at the Exeter Respect Festival (see http://www.exeter-respect.org/) on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th.
There are many petitions circulating about the attacks, most prominent of which seems to be the one from Avaaz to be delivered to the United Nations 'We call for an immediate, international investigation into the flotilla assault, full accountability for those responsible, and the lifting of the Gaza blockade.' http://www.avaaz.org/en/gaza_flotilla_3/?cl=590815824&v=6406. Please sign up if you haven't already.
Regards,
Dave Chappell - Exeter PSC
