Have you seen our posters? Here’s what’s next...
We have collated a list of 75+ resources that include local petitions, learning resources, human rights expertise, fundraising drives and direct action groups from Britain, Israel, Palestine and further international organisations.
Who we are
We are Collective Ending, an artist collective based in Deptford, London. We support an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, an end to the siege and a full end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
What we’re doing
The artists in our collective have created a poster campaign to call out our local MP for abstaining from voting for a ceasefire in Gaza, and referring to this abstinence as a refusal to comment on the 20,000+ lives that have been lost due to the ongoing violence towards Palestinian civilians by the Israeli government.
Why we’re doing it
We are frustrated by the inaction of our local Labour MP for Lewisham, Deptford, Vicky Foxcroft, who abstained from voting for a ceasefire at the House of Commons on 12 November 2023. We are equally as frustrated by our wider government which abstained from voting for a ceasefire at the UN – despite 153 member states voting in favour. We believe that this inaction is contributing to a genocide, unfolding in real time. Our campaign has launched in time with the hearings at the International Courts of Justice, in which South Africa has made claims of Israel’s ‘genocidal intent’ – a term that our representatives have refused to use, despite the fact that over 20,000+ Palestinians civilians have been killed by Israeli strikes in the past four months.
What we say
‘As frustrating as it is that our representatives choose inaction over Gaza, we know that there are incredible organisations working towards a genuine solution between Israel and Palestine to end the occupation, as well as people campaigning to keep the issue in the public consciousness. We wanted to contribute, to show that even if our MPs won’t act, there are others who will.’
‘We want to see Britain do more to protect lives in Gaza, so we invite those who feel the same, to amplify our message and to pressure their own representatives to act.’
