Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign

Building effective solidarity with the Palestinian people

Scottish PSC is an extension to the Palestinian struggle for freedom against Israel's programme of ethnic cleansing and genocide in Palestine.

SPSC exists to channel public opposition to the Zionist settler colonial project into an effective and dynamic Scottish component of the global campaign that sends a powerful message of solidarity with the Palestinian people and a warning to Israel that its crimes must end.


Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign was established in September 2000 in response to the second Palestinian uprising (intifada) against Israeli settler colonialism, occupation and apartheid. Scottish PSC has members, branches, and affiliates across Scotland.

We are a voluntary unincorporated association and a membership organisation. SPSC has no charitable aims, our work is political and we campaign to build effective solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The SPSC National Committee (NC) provides strategic leadership, reaches decisions on urgent matters and is responsible for the day to day running of the national campaign.

The NC consists of the National Chair, National Secretary, National Vice-Chair, National Treasurer and National Membership Secretary plus five additional Committee members elected at the AGM. The NC also includes Branch Representatives defined as up to two members nominated by each Branch, and any roles created by the NC as required.

Our aims:

  1. A complete withdrawal of all Israeli military and paramilitary forces fromthe areas occupied by Israel in 1967
  2. The right of all Palestinian refugees ethnically cleansed from their homes and their descendants to return to their homes or the areas from which they were driven, in line with UN Resolution 194.
  3. An end to the Zionist project of ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
  4. Self-determination for Palestinians.
  5. Equal rights for Palestinians living in Israel.

We work to build effective solidarity with the Palestinian people, with a generally sympathetic Scottish public at every level of Scottish society.

Israel and Settler Society by Lorenzo Veracini

The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not unique -- whatever the news media may suggest. Lorenzo Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism. Like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking in detail at the evolution of other colonial regimes -- apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia -- Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism, offering a clear framework within which to understand the middle east crisis.
