We've written to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Foreign Secretary David Cameron and Leader of the Opposition Keir Starmer urging them to immediately support a ceasefire and work to end the horror we're seeing in Gaza.

Friends of the Earth opposes all acts of violence, condemns the killing of civilians and taking of hostages, calls for all parties to respect international human rights and humanitarian law, and demands that the root causes of this conflict finally be addressed.

We're just one part of Friends of the Earth International, a global network of grassroots environmental justice organisations. One of our sister organisations is PENGON @foepalestine (Palestinian Environmental NGO Network). They've been working in the Occupied Palestinian Territories for decades, speaking out against the destruction of Palestinian farmland, theft of water resources and pollution dumping under Israeli occupation.

Now, as Palestinians face an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and indiscriminate bombing, they need our support more than ever, by backing calls for a ceasefire and an end to the occupation.
