Palestine: the time is now

Posted: 7 September 2011
The Palestinian bid for recognition is down to the wire -- and if we join forces in the next 72 hours we could get the crucial EU leadership needed to push it through.

Right now three key countries -- France, the UK and Germany -- are still wavering under pressure from nay-sayers who are trying to crush this new opportunity for freedom. To flip them we're planning a spectacular delivery of our 900,000 strong petition with a gigantic 300 sq m Palestinian flag right outside the EU Council meeting. We also need to run 3 urgent public opinion polls that clearly show these leaders that their people support recognition, and flood the media with full page ads.

We can grab the attention of these leaders, show them a massive public mandate to act and hammer home a message of hope for the Palestinian people. We may not get this chance again -- if 10,000 of us make a small donation now, we can rush funds into the powerful public actions we need at this critical moment.
