War on Want launches “Writing’s on the Wall” campaign

Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters writes on the wall (War On Want)

The International Court Of Justice in the Hague has judged the wall, built by Israel and cutting through the occupied territories, to be illegal - on the same day War on Want launched its new Palestine campaign.

The ruling could pave the way for international action agianst Israel, who have said they will not comply with the ICJ ruling.

Roger Waters, launching War on Want’s ‘The Writing’s on the Wall’ campaign said of the wall “The poverty inflicted by the wall has been devastating for Palestinians. It has kept children from their schools, the sick from proper medical care and continues to destroy the Palestinian economy. I fully support War on Want’s campaign, and hope that as many people as possible sign the wall – as a strong message to the UK government that immediate action is essential.”

A cross-party group of MPs signed the wall on Thursday.

Louise Richards, Chief Executive of War on Want, said, “It is imperative that the UK government backs the international legal process and applies full economic and diplomatic pressure on the Israeli government to end their assault on the rights and welfare of the Palestinian people.”
