Among the signatories are Brian Eno, Bella Freud, Jeremy Irons, Ken Loach, Caroline Lucas MP, Andy Slaughter MP, Miriam Margolyes, Ilan Pappe, John Pilger, Benjamin Zephaniah and many others.
Over 6,000 people signed the PSC Gaza petition so far. And across the country PSC local branches held events and vigils to mark this sombre occasion, and to draw attention to the continued suffering of Palestinians in Gaza.
