Blockade of Gaza

I have a petition on behalf of Mrs Elizabeth Morley and other constituents from Ceredigion on the subject of the Israeli blockade of Gaza.

The petition states:

The Petition of the people of Ceredigion,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that the Government should take all actions within its power to end the blockade of Gaza.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to condemn the blockade on Gaza and Israel’s attack on peace activists in international waters; and urges the Government to demand of Israel the release of all activists detained and to urge all international institutions, including the UN, the EU and human rights agencies and organisations to work towards ending Israeli impunity.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
