LSESU Palestine Society call on people to join
Daniel Ayalon, the deputy foreign minister of Israel is speaking at the LSE at 5.30pm, Monday, 26 October. The chairman of Yisrael Beiteinu, Ayalon's party, has threatened to "execute" Palestinian Members of the Knesset, including if they "...declared Israel’s Independence Day to be ‘Nakba’ Day".
The LSE is withholding the location of the event until 4pm but the LSESU Palestine Society is asking people to assemble at 5pm in Houghton Street (the pedestrianised street off the Aldywch in the centre of the campus) and from there to walk to the location of the lecture to protest against his racist views.
IJAN will be going. Hope to see you there. Spread the word.
