       Daniel Taub, Israel's ambassador to the UK, has been invited to speak at the Oxford Union on Tuesday.

      We, as residents and students of Oxford, believe that a talk by Taub - the representative of a regime responsible for the deaths of over 2,200 Palestinians, including 490 children in Gaza this summer - provides a platform for the whitewashing of Israeli war crimes and brutality. Tuesday 28th at 7.30.

      Please join us outside the Oxford Union to show that he is not welcome

      Helpers needed for our PSC stall at the One World Fair, Oxford Town Hall, Saturday 22 November. If you can offer an hour or two between 10 am and 4pm  it would be much appreciated. We aim to have two people on the stall at any one time. We also need helpers to transport materials to and from the event (particularly around 4.00 to help us pack up and transport leftover materials). It is always a very enjoyable event. Please reply to this mailing with any help you can offer and an indication of what time you would prefer to cover the stall. Many thanks!
      We are now running a regular stall on Cornmarket twice a week:

   Every Saturday 11.30-1.30pm: OXFORD PSC STALL in Cornmarket by St Michael at Northgate church. The OPSC Saturday street stall on Cornmarket Street is one of the main ways we use for raising the issue of Palestine with the public at large. It is an important activity

      for offering information leaflets to the public, inviting them to join PSC or leave their email for Oxford PSC updates. Generally we are there 11:30 to 13:30. Always a minimum of two people on shift. Please consider volunteering for a shift: it’s an opportunity to meet other PSC members, those wanting information and occasionally those wishing to challenge our views, even volunteering for one shift a year would help. Please email Ali at if you're able to help. And : For anyone who haven't heard yet,from Wednesday the 28th May until September, Mel and others will be doing a stand every Wednesday between 12.30- 2.30 pm, please let us know if you can help, especially setting up and clearing, we hope to get as many of you as possible, please pass the word around and drop by after your Wednesday market shopping.
