Palestine and Prevent Referrals

Over 180,000 people marched in London on Saturday 21st May. Most were chanting ‘Free Free Palestine’. However, chanting this or showing any support to the Palestinian cause in schools can lead to a Prevent referral!

We have seen several incidents where children have been ‘spoken to’ for showing support for the Palestinian cause. And we have previous cases where Prevent referrals were made over Palestine.

We are here to support the community, anyone concerned about the actions of the teachers and authorities please contact our free helpline: 03333443396 or email us: contact@preventwatch.org
