Our Campaigns & Activities
The group works on the following campaigns and activities. We have campaign coordinators for each of the main campaigns to help keep the group up to date with the national programmes.

Campaigning for an end to the abuse of civilians as a result of Israel's illegal occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem and its inhumane blockade of Palestinians in Gaza.
- Terrorism, Security and Human Rights.
Campaigning for an end to human rights abuses as a result of the ‘war on terror’ and for the release of British people held in Guantanamo Bay without charge.
- Women's Rights.
Campaigning 1) for equality of opportunity and legal status, and 2) against sexual abuse and domestic violence worldwide.
- Death penalty
