Protest outside White House as Israeli PM seeks assurance of U.S. support for apartheid on Liberation News

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.

Noting that Biden and Bennett were meeting to solidify their ties, she said: “It is further proof — as if more is needed — that the peace process has always and will continue to be a sham. It is evidence that we as Palestinians were never meant to have a say in our future, but are instead expected to take some sort of deal handed to us from above … When we resist as a people, Biden’s response is to invite our oppressor into his home. He claims progressive values, but what is progressive about genocide? After the Zionist regime dropped bombs on Gaza for 11 days straight, Biden sent an extra $735 million in weapons from Boeing to the Zionist regime.”

Marching in a broad circle around the White House grounds, the protesters chanted, “Bennett, Bennet you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

US organizations demand Tampa General Hospital to end partnership with Israeli business on WAFA News Agency

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 depoliticization of healthcare as a site of neutrality showcases the continuous refusal to acknowledge health disparities that are caused by structural harms. The structures of colonialism, militarization, and capitalism perpetuate an erasure of an entire ethnicity in which this case are the Palestinians in the face of Israeli aggression. A statement that isn’t a hyperbole, or a belittlement but a well-documented fact by multiple international human rights organizations. Can Tampa General Hospital advocate for the advancement of health in its community, while it invests in the genocide and displacement of besieged Palestinians?

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.

On May 19, the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) motion passed a motion in solidarity with Palestinian students. It discusses Israel and its acts of violence against Palestinians, such as attacks on residential grounds and mosques. SFSS’ statement included a call to action to “initiate, support, and amplify” Palestinian calls to join BDS campaigns… Palestinian student Lara Radwan said, “Happy to see the SFSS stand on the right side of history as they stop letting businesses profit off of genocide and ethnic cleansing. We all play a part in making a change, and glad to see the SFSS take theirs.”

Actions demand NY close groups backing settler genocide in Palestine by Liberation News

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 whole world recoiled at the May media footage of racist Israeli settlers threatening to kill and beating up Palestinian people in order to steal their homes in the Sheik Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. The press, however, did not point out  many of these arch-racist settlers are actually Americans with dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship, whose real “home” is Long Island. Nor was it explained that the U.S. and state governments are complicit in these crimes because they allow, and even give tax exempt status to organizations which mobilize these home-grown racists for ethnic cleansing and genocide in occupied Palestine.

‘Block the Boat’ hits New Jersey on Mondoweiss

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 situation in Palestine remains very urgent so we really need to build on the momentum from the increased solidarity we see and move it toward action that is really going to have an impact on the occupation, on apartheid. Things like the ZIM actions, like labor divesting from Israeli society. We need to be consistent in saying Palestinians have the right to defend themselves from this ongoing genocide from the Israeli state.

Al-Awda NY exposes settler Yaakov Fauci outside his Long Island home, demands closure of New York groups promoting colonization, ethnic cleansing, and genocide in Palestine on Al-Awda NY

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.

Al-Awda NY took a message of justice and accountability to the home of notorious Long Island extremist Zionist settler Justin “Yaakov” Fauci. Fauci moved from New York to invade and steal Palestinian lands including the Al-Kurd family home and became notorious for publicly admitting his crime when he stated, “If I don’t steal it, someone else is gonna” as he invaded the Palestinian home.

“It is a violation of U.S. federal law for Americans to engage in war crimes and genocide, it is shocking that there is impunity for such open acts of violence, and it is outrageous that New York State actively shelters, promotes and celebrates such violence, which is itself also a crime,” said attorney Lamis Deek.

Use of Pegasus shows Modi government is scared of May 17 Movement: Thirumurugan Gandhi on Caravan Magazine

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.

As soon as I was out on bail, they filed several other cases against me. They had basically gone through every single protest I had organised in a decade and filed cases for each of them. The UAPA case was about a protest that we had conducted back in 2014 when the Gaza war was going on. We had protested in Nungambakkam, calling for an end to the Palestinian genocide. Speaking in the protest I had said that genocide anywhere that is left unchallenged will lead to genocide in other places. I said that allowing Israel to conduct genocide unpunished will lead to the international community looking the other way if the same happened here.

Third rally in a month amid rising tensions in Palestine on CBD News

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.

Hundreds gathered at the State Library in July for a rally organised by Free Palestine Melbourne for the third Pro-Palestine march in Melbourne’s CBD in two months, following the escalation of conflict in Gaza… Attendees were draped in flags and carrying signs adorned with Pro-Palestinian messages “It’s not war! It’s Genocide!”, “Free Palestine”, and “Palestine occupied but unconquered.”

Ibrahim: The fight for Palestinian liberation unifies marginalized populations by Sara Ibrahim

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.

Jarring pictures and videos of human rights abuses — such as Israeli settlers forcing Palestinians to break and leave their homes and chanting “Death to Arabs,” “The 2nd Nakba is coming soon” and “A good Arab is a dead one” — have been able to circulate through social media channels. Conversation about the Palestinian plight has been easier to tap into. 

Social media has also normalized the use of certain terms such as “ethnic cleansing,” “settler colonialism,” “forced displacement,” “genocide” and “apartheid,” which are terms that were previously not widely used in discourse about Palestine. Describing the genocide as a “conflict” is becoming more rejected as the word implies that both sides are on equal footing, when there is a clear colonizer and colonized, oppressor and oppressed.

Community members host vigil for lives lost in Gaza on The Michigan Daily

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.

[LSA junior Salma Hamamy, one of the organizers of the vigil] talked about the difficulties of being a Palestinian student at the University because of its support for Israel. 

“I’m exhausted having to argue with people for basic human rights,” Hamamy said. “I’m exhausted from people trying to minimize and deny the ethnic genocide placed onto the Palestinian people, and Israeli sanctioned apartheid. I’m overall exhausted from witnessing Palestinian bodies pile up in numbers, only for Zionists to then later try to justify us being murdered, and for the University of Michigan to remain silent. In, neglecting their Palestinian students and trying to frame this as a ‘conflict’ when it is colonialism, the University has given us nothing but empty words.”
