Palestine Solidarity Campaign

ADMINISTRATIVE/BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY: The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) is an independent, non-governmental and non-party political activist organisation in England and Wales that promotes solidarity with the Palestinian people. It has members from many communities across Britain and, increasingly, throughout the world. It was founded in 1982 during the build-up to Israel's invasion of Lebanon, and was incorporated in the UK in 2004 as Palestine Solidarity Campaign Ltd. Its website states that it 'was established to campaign for Palestinian rights, including the right to self-determination and the right of return, and to oppose Israel’s occupation and violations of international law. PSC is opposed to all forms of racism, including anti-Jewish prejudice and Islamophobia.'
