Past Events
Peace Cycle Campaign to the European Parliament
In March 2009 the Peace Cycle organised a bicycle ride from the International Courts of Justice at The Hague, to the European Parliament in Brussels.
Cyclists from several European countries took part and the event culminated with a presentation and media event, hosted by the Green Party, inside the Parliament Building to a large audience of MEPs and journalists.
Past Peace Cyclists spoke about their experiences in Israel and Palestine and how they had witnessed the occupation destroying any chances of peace in the region.
A petition calling for the suspension of the EU-Israel Association Agreement, signed by a lmost 20,000 EU citizens, was presented to the EU Petitions Committee.
The Peace Cycle will continue to press the EU to suspend preferential trading agreements with Israel until it abides by International Law and respects human rights.

 

"Protest to the European Parliament"
 

The EU-Israel Association Agreement allows Israel preferential trading terms with EU countries.
However, article 2 of the terms of this agreement states that all parties must respect human rights.

Israel is clearly in breach of these terms and our petition calls for an immediate suspension of the agreement.

We will be presenting the petition to MEPs at the European Parliament in Brussels at an event hosted by the Green Party on Tuesday 31st March.

As part of this event there will be a public demonstration in Brussels including a bike ride in the city - more details soon.

So please sign this petition and forward it to all your contacts in the UK and across Europe, and let's make this something the EU has to take notice of!

Palestine Peacemakers - UK Speaking Tour - 19th to 29th April

The Peace Cycle is proud to host a UK speaking tour featuring two prominent speakers from Palestine:

George Rishmawi is a Palestinian Christian from the Bethlehem area. George is Co-ordinator of the Siraj Center for Holy Land Studies in Beit Sahour, and is board member of the Network of Christian Organisations in Bethlehem.
George has toured the USA speaking to churches about the indigenous Christians in Palestine, and encouraging Christians to visit the Holy Land. His talk and presentation is combined with a film showing and displays of traditional Palestinian crafts - olive wood carvings, embroidery, etc. - which have provided an income for Christians in Palestine for hundreds of years.

Eyad Burnat is a Palestinian Muslim from Bil'in. He is founder of the Movement for Freedom and Justice in Bil'in - one of the most highly respected and well known non-violent movements in Palestine. Bil'in is a small village north of Jerusalem and is directly in the path of the Separation Wall being built by Israel - the wall has been declared illegal in the International Court, and the residents of Bil'in are joined by many Israelis in a peaceful weekly protest which has become synonymous with the non-violent movement against occupation in Palestine. Eyad will be showing the film Bil'in Habibti (Bil'in My Love), which won Best Documentary at the Jerusalem International Film Festival in 2006, as part of his UK tour.
