electronicintifada.net
The 21,000 people have signed an open letter to David Cameron, the British prime minister, demanding an immediate halt to the arms trade between the UK and Israel.
The letter was delivered today, directly to Cameron’s residence at 10 Downing Street in London by Loach and three members of parliament — Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott and Jim Fitzpatrick.

Other signatories included the Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie, the authors Will Self, Hanif Kureishi, Ahdaf Soueif and William Dalrymple, musicians Brian Eno and Robert de Naja (Massive Attack), the actors David Morrissey, Maxine Peake and Alexei Sayle and the journalist Jemima Khan. 
Academics Karma Nabulsi, Ghada Karmi and Steven Rose and human rights lawyer Geoffrey Bindman also signed the letter.
The letter was posted on the Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s website earlier this week and gathered 21,000 signatures in just two days.

Speaking outside Downing Street today, Hugh Lanning of the PSC said: “Our aim is to stop the Israeli government getting military aid and equipment from the British government. Our aid and arms help kill innocent Palestinian civilians. We need to isolate apartheid Israel now and impose sanctions now.”
