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.

His article last month declaring that Israel has a “moral right to annex all of the West Bank” has made him persona non grata on campus, the focus of student protests and a Faculty Council vote condemning his article for promoting “racism toward Arabs generally and Palestinians in particular.”
At a campus forum Tuesday on Middle East politics and academic freedom, a dozen students walked out chanting, “Jason Hill, you can’t hide, we know you want genocide,” as shown on video by Students for Justice in Palestine at DePaul.

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.

Anna Ben-Hur, a junior student majoring in STPEC, attended the event because she felt connected to Palestinian issues. “My family is part Israeli, although I am American. I have visited there and was confused about the conflict and genocide there,” she said. “This event successfully raised awareness of these issues. We cared about Palestinian rights.”

A Heated Fifth Week of Protest at the Whitney Museum Centers Palestinian Liberation on Hyperallergic

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.

Members of Within Our Lifetime, a youth organization for Palestine, broke the tension in the air with a cheerful Dabka (Palestinian folk dance) flash-mob. The dance was followed by a string of chants including: “Warren Kanders you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide”; “from Brooklyn to Palestine, occupation is a crime”; and “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”
…“Kanders is art washing through his blood money as a profiteer. We see this normalization in Israel, where they’re trying to attract famous artists to come and perform, while Palestinian women and children are being attacked with rubber bullets and tear gas,” said another member of Within Our Lifetime. “We won’t let those who profit of Israel’s settler colonialism and the genocide of Palestinians hide in the board rooms of museums.”

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 marchers unfurled a massive Palestinian flag and carried it down Mission Street from the 24th Street and Mission BART station, past vendors sprinkling chili and lime on fruit cups, past the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and past produce markets where customers juggled plastic bags of avocados and corn in their arms while taking videos on their cell phones of the passing throng.
“People, people, choose a side, human rights or genocide?” the demonstrators chanted.

Interfaith coalition of activists and organizations to rally on anniversary of deadly March of Return protest on South Florida Sun Sentinel

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.

“Israel is a country that openly practices ethnic cleansing of Palestinians,” Mugilan said. “Even today innocent Palestinian school kids are being executed by Israel’s state-sponsored terror. It is important to show that as a community we stand in solidarity with the oppressed and the underprivileged.”
Mugilan also objected to claims that BDS is anti-semitic, saying it is specifically targeted at the Israeli government, not anyone of a particular religion or ethnicity.
“BDS is not a campaign that targets Jews but is a campaign against the practices and policies of a state that exercises genocide, crimes against humanity, acts of racism, and apartheid,” he said.

Democrats Say No to Largest Pro-Israeli Lobby on AlBawaba

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 AIPAC conference kicked off on Sunday amid protests by Palestinian rights advocates who waved Palestinian flags outside the Washington Convention Center. “I’m here today because it’s time that the world understands what the reality is in occupied Palestine,” Donna Nassor, an activist, said at the rally. “It’s been 70 plus years of incremental genocide. I’m also here because the American people need to understand what our tax dollars are doing and how it is causing suffering to Palestinians, as we support war criminals in Israel.”

SUPER UW condemns Jackson School’s speaker, Alon Tal on The 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.

By advancing its discriminatory work within the JNF and GZA, Israel aims to divert attention away from their acts of genocide and war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories under the guise of environmentalism and sustainability. Greenwashing is when ethnic cleansing is masqueraded as environmental action, and Israel has attempted to rebrand their war crimes through promoting their so-called “green” organizations at conferences around the world. The absence of Palestine past, present, and future in Alon Tal’s extensive work reveals clearly that his vision and Israel’s green policies are nothing but, what Jasbir Puar called, “Israel’s project of rehabilitation through the spatial, affective, and corporeal debilitation of Palestine.” It is imperative to understand that social justice remains a core of environmental justice, and that the framing of environmental issues can never be separated from indigenous struggles for land, resources, and decolonization.
