London 9 October 2017
The Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) briefed British Labour Party politician Jared O’Mara, Member of Parliament for the constituency of Sheffield Hallam since 2017.
The PRC gave a presentation to Mr. O’Mara detailing the situation of Palestinian refugees across the Middle East and in Palestine-Israel. PRC stressed the importance of the Palestinian right of return.
Mr. O’Mara talked about the support for Palestinian rights from members of his constituency and the need to address the situation in Gaza especially since the ‘electricity crisis’ further worsened the already desperate conditions.
PRC also discussed its own activities within Parliament, the United Nations and the Balfour Apology Campaign. The way the government will ‘mark’ or ‘celebrate’ the centenary of the Balfour Declaration was addressed with great concern by both Mr O’Mara and PRC.
Mr O’Mara said he looks forward to working with other members of parliament to end the oppression of the Palestinian people.
