NSPCC Christmas Letter 2022

Apparently if children write to Santa via the NSPCC they will get an answer. So we have used that information to write a letter from an imaginary Palestinian child. It makes the point about the toxic relationship between the charity and its donor JCB.


From the UKPalMHN letter to NSPCC:

“We feel that it is scandalous that the NSPCC, a charity which campaigns for the welfare of children, is accepting funds from a company complicit in crimes against children; crimes which destroy their homes, their lives and their communities.

The NSPCC should be providing support to traumatised children wherever they live. It should advocate for children’s rights and inform the world of the terrible cost to children of Israel’s human rights abuses of families in Palestine.

However, instead of calling for the protection of children and despite NSPCC receiving detailed information about JCB’s complicity in Israel’s house demolitions, a strand of the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestine, it continues to accept money from JCB.”
