Posted on: 11th July 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 2017 in 2010-11, proposed by Bob Russell on 30/06/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House commends Archbishop Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace, for promoting the record Freedom for Palestine by OneWorld; acknowledges his powerful words comparing what life was like in apartheid South Africa to what he has personally witnessed in Palestinian territories occupied by Israel; congratulates the charity War on Want for publishing Archbishop Tutu’s words of encouragement to the Palestinian people and his message to the world that a critical mass of people want to see an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the oppression of its people; urges hon. and Rt hon. Members to buy the single Freedom for Palestine; and calls on the Government to join forces with governments around the world to put pressure on Israel to honour UN resolutions.
