This is our monthly email to you with some key dates for your diary.
May Council and MEP elections
In May we have elections for London Members of European Parliament (MEP) as well as election for our local Waltham Forest Councillors. Both elections present us with the opportunities to raise with the candidates the issues of Palestine and enquire what their position is.
As a part of a national campaign we have emailed all MEP candidates a questionnaire which you can find, together with the MEPs’ emails list on our website.
We will soon be writing to all candidates for Waltham Forest councillors – please check our website for the text of our letter.
You could use those letters to do the same. The more of us do that, the more our representatives are going to be aware of the strength of feeling about the Palestine in Waltham Forest and of our determination to ensure that our opinions on Palestine are represented.
