No celebration of Israel’s occupation by Jose Camacho

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 Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) organizes the Israel Block Party Protest every year to speak out against the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. The Block Party is hosted by Zionist organizations seeking to whitewash Israel’s crimes and disseminate false propaganda about Israel…

We are against the normalization of genocide and systematic violence against Palestinians. There is an Israel Defense Forces booth, for example, which glorifies the military force responsible for enforcing occupation, apartheid and ethnic cleansing. This event also appropriates Palestinian culture and perpetuates the erasure of Palestinians. Our purpose is to speak out against these actions and show that they are not welcome on our campus.

Photos: Thousands protest “twin brothers in genocide” Turnbull and Netanyahu in Sydney on Green Left Weekly

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.

About 2000 people rallied in Sydney on February 23 to protest the federal government hosting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and its support for Israel’s latest land grabs.

Uncle Ken Canning said: “The same murderous colonial mentality that is killing Palestinians landed here in 1788 and decimated us to 2.7% of the population. It is little wonder that [Prime Minister Malcolm] Turnbull welcomes Netanyahu, they are twin brothers in genocide.”

Black Lives Matter in Bil’in (BLM, July 2016)

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.

Today, delegates from the Movement for Black Lives join organizers and activists in Bil’in, a territory in occupied Palestine where resisters are engaged in nonviolent protest… In this violent, political climate, it is urgent that we make clear the connection between violence inflicted on Black people globally that is encouraged and permitted by the state and the profiling, harm, and genocide funded by the United States and perpetrated by Zionists vigilantes and the Israeli Defense Forces on Palestinian people. Our collective oppression mandates that we work together across geography, language and culture to decry and organize an end to capitalistic, imperialist regimes.

Why I’m not discussing genocide in Jerusalem by Martin Shaw

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.

Thus far, I am sympathetic to the ambitions for this conference. Its programme is impressive. My absence, however, is not accidental. It is one thing to avoid political commitments, as INOGS has managed to do up to now. It is another, when holding an event in a site of conflict, to accept the position advocated by one side and to reject the position adopted by the other. Whether INOGS likes it or not, the academic boycott of Israel is part of this conflict.

Black Lives Matter and BDS by Bill Mullen

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.

In the past two weeks, IUPUI’s Black Student Union has participated in or led demonstrations to bring awareness to the deaths of the people of Palestine and to stand in solidarity with the students at the University of Missouri. In neither instance did IUPUI administration acknowledge the genocide taking place in Palestine or the racial injustices and hate speech taking place state side. And there was certainly no substantive show of support on official University social media accounts, as there was today [in reference to the Paris attacks]. When thousands of Nigerians were murdered in a Boko Haram attack, IUPUI remained silent.

As an institution of higher learning there is a responsibility to respond in ways that are reflective of the entire student body, which also includes countries where students of color originate.

Angry protesters greet Israeli justice minister in Berlin (i24News, 2015)

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.

Left-wing activists and BDS supporters gathered outside the Justice ministry, where Shaked opened a conference titled “Democracy and the Rule of Law,” with German Minister of Justice Heiko Maas… “She was talking about genocide, and in Germany, her statements would probably have landed her in jail,” said Iris Hefets of “Jewish Voice for a Just Peace in the Middle East,” which organized the rally alongside several BDS groups. The organization also sent letters to the heads of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, urging then to reconsider their decision to host a dinner in honor of Shaked.
