---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Hugh Stevens <email@example.com> Thursday June 18, 7.00 p.m. : Palestine, Arab unity, and the sanctions on Iraq and Libya No progress can be made towards a resolution of the Palestine question without progress towards greater Arab unity. The economic sanctions imposed on Iraq and Libya by the UN Security Council under US and British pressure are not only a monstrous crime against humanity within the borders of those two countries themselves, but also divide and cripple the Arab world as a whole. All those in Britain who wish to build an effective movement of solidarity with Palestine must therefore urgently confront the task of campaigning for the immediate lifting of the Iraq and Libya sanctions which hamstring all moves towards united Arab action on the Palestine issue. Place: The meeting takes place at: Conway Hall (Bertrand Russell Room), Red Lion Square, London WC1. Tube: Holborn. For further information, phone: 0171 436 4636
