We shouldn’t let world’s future be manipulated by the past by Mairead Maguire

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

The Middle East and Palestinians should not be made pay with their lives for what happened 70 years ago and surely at some point in time Europeans, including Germany, will have to question how big a price Palestinians must pay through their silence and complicity.
For too long anti-semitic accusations have been wielded by Israeli Zionists as a political weapon to silence anyone who challenges Zionist policies and it is widely known and feared in media and politics that to question Israeli policies and be labelled anti-semitic, is a possible career ending for anyone with the courage to do so.
It is time for the people to wash away the shame and guilt of the Second World War and no longer be silent and complicit in the modern day slow genocide of the Palestinian people.

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

ANC MP Mandla Mandela has called for “apartheid Israel” to be charged with genocide and crimes against humanity following the recent killing of dozens of protesting Palestinians by Israeli forces.

Gaza in 2018 is what Selma was in 1965 by David A Love

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Article II of the United Nations’ Genocide Convention defines genocide as any of the following, with the intent to destroy a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, in whole or in part: “(a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” Israel, a nation created in the wake of the Holocaust, should take this definition to heart as it assesses how it treats Palestinians.

Queer and trans Muslim realities in America by Almas Haider

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.
