it's time to change the record on palestine

It's very simple – we're asking for full equal rights for everybody who calls the Holy Land home. 'Change The Record' is a bold initiative to mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration and 50 years of military occupation of the Palestinian Territories.

Change The Record

Our response to mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration and the need for full equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home.

When we talk about Israel/Palestine, too often people feel that the issues are too complicated and they don’t know how to respond. We believe there’s a simple way to respond. If you believe that there should be full equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home – then it's time to Change The Record:

  • Solidarity
    We want to Change The Record as an act of solidarity with Palestinians who do not have freedom of movement.

  • Peace
    We want to Change The Record so that Palestinian and Israeli peace activists don't feel that they're forgotten on the long road to peace and justice.

  • Penance
    We want to Change The Record as an act of penance for Britain’s 100 year-long failure to ensure Palestinian rights.

Seeds of injustice
On 2nd November 1917, the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, declared:

His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine."

The seeds of today’s injustice, inequality and violence were sown by the Balfour Declaration in 1917. We want to mark the anniversary with a bold act of solidarity and a call for peace with justice.

Just Walk to Jerusalem
Amos Trust supporters have completed their 3,400-kilometre 'Just Walk' from London to Jerusalem which finished on 2nd November – the 100th anniversary of Balfour. Towards the end of the pilgrimage, we walked alongside our Christian, Muslim and Jewish friends, to make the call for peace and justice for all.

You can still follow all the Just Walk news, interviews and images by searching #changetherecord or by visiting our Facebook Page and Instagram.

While the Just Walk itself may be over, the call for full equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home keeps going. Please continue to support our 'Change The Record' campaign and join us as we continue to ask the British government to push for full equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home.
