Public Meeting about “Gaza under Siege” with Prof. Colin Green PDF Print E-mail
Added by Administrator   
Saturday, 20 June 2015 07:14

We are very pleased that Prof. Colin Green has agreed to come and give a presentation about the impact of the ongoing siege of Gaza one year after Israel’s horrendous attack. Prof. Green has had a distinguished career as a surgeon and academic and is currently Emeritus Professor of Surgery at University College London. For many years he has played a pivotal role in the development of health education in Palestine, helping to set up the Faculty of Medicine at Al Quds University in 1994 and the Palestinian Centre for Health Sciences Education in Ramallah in 2008. In 2004 he was awarded the MilleniumMedal by President Yasser Arafat for his “services to Palestine”. In 2000 he also set up the International Medical Education Trust as a UK-based charity where he continues his work in support of Palestine.

We would like to remind you about this event at the end of May with an extremely well-informed speaker on the subject of Israel's Bedouin community and the difficulties they face.  The venue has a limited seating capacity of 60 and tickets are selling rapidly, so we advise you to book immediately if you would like to attend.

Leafleting Issues in Woking - Restricting Free Speech? PDF Print E-mail
Added by Administrator   
Tuesday, 28 April 2015 06:22
In September 2014, four members leafleted in Commercial Way. The Customer Satisfaction Manager of WS, Mr de Grauw, came and said we could not leaflet there without prior permission. After he left, two private security guards hired for a food fair arrived. One tried to seize a placard, a form of physical assault, and claimed he had authority to do so . We resisted. They refused to call the Police. Then somebody came whom they described as their boss (Mr Marshall of Woking Council) and we retreated. A member of the public had witnessed this and phoned the Police. The Police found us and said the guards had no right to act as they had done and that our material was not offensive. They confirmed it later after checking with the Council. In subsequent discussions with Mr Marshall, he apologised for the behaviour of the guards and confirmed we did have the right to leaflet there. We agreed an informal procedure by 3 December so that, through him, the Police and WS would be notified in advance of our future leafleting plans to make sure there were no conflicting events.
We followed that procedure in advance to advise that we proposed to leaflet on Jubilee Square and Commercial Way for about 2 hours on 10 April 2015. We received no comment and went ahead. Eight of us started leafleting on that day - four in Jubilee Square and four on Commercial Way. However a guard came to Jubilee Square and said we could not do so. Mr de Grauw arrived and said the same, and that he had not been informed of the proposed leafleting. We pointed out we had followed the agreed procedure and suggested he call the police. He then agreed we could carry on until 12am, as we had intended, and we left without incident. The discussions were polite. However he said we could not leaflet in future in these two ‘public realm’ areas without his consent, submission of a form asking for permission, evidence of public liability insurance etc, although these areas were not in the ownership of WS.
