Hours for Palestine

To European leaders and all UN member states:

We urge you to endorse the legitimate bid for recognition of the state of Palestine and the reaffirmation of the rights of the Palestinian people. It is time to turn the tide on decades of failed peace talks, end the occupation and move towards peace based on two states.

In hours, the Palestinians will take a bid for statehood to the UN -- this could be the best chance for peace in decades. But key countries are still on the fence and under huge pressure from Israel and the US to vote no. Only we can turn this around.

If the Palestinians win, it could begin to end 40 years of occupation and pave the way for two states living in peace and security, side by side. Most of the world supports the bid, and already, after more than 1.6 million of us joined this campaign, we are beginning to swing governments across Europe, but now we need to ramp it up to win.  

Heads of state are deciding right now. In the wake of recent violence this could not be more urgent. Let's make sure every country commits to freedom and peace in the Middle East on Thursday. Click to the right to sign up! 

Let's show the Palestinians our support for their new state!
