Norwich Haymarket 30th August 11am

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is the greatest threat to our democracy, our environment, workers’ rights, public services, food standards, consumer rights, animal welfare and privacy since the Second World War.  It is a free trade deal currently being negotiated in secret between the European Commission and the United States government.  Even elected politicians are not allowed to see all the negotiating documents.

It would mean that governments would have to pay compensation to multinational corporations if any law they pass affected corporate profits. So, for instance, we would not be able to renationalise the railways, utilities, or the NHS because their owners would sue for compensation. And regulations would have to be cut if they pose a barrier to trade.

Momentous Decision at UN

Posted on | December 1, 2012 | No Comments

On Wednesday 28th November 2012 the UN General Assembly voted by 134 in favour to 9 against with 41 abstensions to accept Palestine’s application for non-member observer status at to the UN.

This could be the first step after the declaration of a truce and ceasfire for Gaza to re-initiate  negotiations on the basis of full recognition of the rights of Palestine and all Palestinians and bring peace to Jerusalem and all the land around it for all people who wish to live there in peace as well.

Wrongful detention and imprisonment of children

Posted on | December 22, 2012 | No Comments

The wrongful arrest and detention of Palestinian children has a long history and is contrary to all UN, EU, UK and international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

All children as we all know are protected by law and this right cannot and should not be taken away from them.

There is an online petition about this which you can visit and sign if you wish at:

End the War on Terror

Posted on | October 5, 2013 | No Comments

12:00 amto11:00 pm

Monday 7th October marks the beginning of  ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ which was supposed to liberate Afghanistan

it has endured longer than WWl and WWll put together and brought no freedom
Quite the opposite it has brought death, destruction, misery and poverty to millions of Afghans, millions of whom are also refugess, even in their own country.

It has also resulted in many US and British servicemen’s deaths and injury

and achieved nothing good whatsoever at an astronomical price as well

All around the world people are calling for an end to this unjust war and all the wars enacted in the name of the War on terror

on this day please spare a thought for the Afghanis who were drawn into this through no fault of their own

World War One Centenary

with the centenary of the commencement of WWl  upon us

and in recognition of those who want to take this as an excuse to celebrate nationalism and Britishness

the very things that got us into World Wars one and two

NPC&PC calls on people to remember the ‘War to end all wars’ otherwise

and to remember that those words were a binding promise

meaning never again…

Yet again Gaza is under attack

already over 200 Palestinians have been killed and over 1,500 injured, many very severely

of these many are women and children and at least 70% civilians

the Israeli onslaught is in revenge for the tragic killing of three youths

but this does not justify what is being done

those who killed the youths should be brought to justice

it is no excuse for this murderous collective punishment

please come to support this peaceful rally
There will also be a big march in London and in many cities around the world

“ Cuba: 50 years of revolution; 50 years of blockade”

Posted on | August 18, 2014 | No Comments

September 19, 2014
1:00 pmto2:00 pm
Dear Friends

This is to advise you of the next UNA LunchBox talk in the Friends Meeting House in Upper Goat Lane, Norwich on Friday 19th September 2014.  The talk this time will be entitled “ Cuba: 50 years of revolution; 50 years of blockade” and will be given by Rob Miller, the Director of the UK Cuban Solidarity Campaign.

The talk will start at 1pm followed by questions.

The Cuba Solidarity Campaign is the British campaign against the illegal blockade of Cuba and for the Cuban peoples’ right to self-determination and national sovereignty.  US hostility to Cuba continues today despite twenty specific UN General Assembly resolutions, passed with overwhelming majorities, demanding the total, immediate and unconditional lifting of the US blockade.  This blockade is the most enduring in history and is estimated to have cost the Cuban economy 96 billion dollars in the last 50 years.  The US blockade is a commercial, economic and financial embargo which began in October 1960 – following the successful Cuban revolution of 1959.

Do come along and find out the latest news about Cuba.

best wishes,

Marguerite
