HSBC – Prince’s Street
Come out and support the Palestinian hunger strikers at the SPSC Edinburgh weekly stall this Saturday 13th April.

Bring your banners, flags and placards and show your solidarity with the Palestinian political prisoners and protest against their incarceration and deplorable treatment in Israeli jails.

We will be outside HSBC as part of a UK campaign led by War on Want.
