Restaurante do Recife é alvo de polêmica após colar adesivo de boicote a Israel / Restaurant in controversy for a boycott Israel sticker on FolhaPE

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.

[Google Translate] Social networks circulated support opinions and also boycott the Papaya Verde restaurant, located in the neighborhood of Espinheiro, North Zone of Recife. It all started when the establishment fixed stickers produced by the Palestine Alliance of Recife (APR)  on the door containing the inscriptions “Free Palestine! It’s not war, it’s genocide! Boycott Israel! ”

Many people, through Facebook posts, have positioned themselves on the subject. Some defended the position, referring to the right of expression of one of the owners, who is of Palestinian origin. Others accused Papaya Verde of using a “hate speech.”

… The FolhaPE Portal also received a note from João Asfora, who wrote:

“I have never, in my entire life, treated anyone in the restaurant, whether Muslim, Jewish, Umbandist, spiritist or evangelical. I have always been an activist of the causes of the oppressed and exploited, and especially of the cause of the Palestinian people.

The stickers taken as offensive express my peaceful struggle for the rights of this people who suffer all kinds of violence from an abusive apartheid regime. As for the use of the word genocide in the stickers, anyone who says there is no genocide in these Israeli incursions in the Gaza Strip is at least blind or ill-intentioned.

Yes, I am a Palestinian! I am proud of my homeland and I am not deaf to the suffering of my people. I do not accept the genocidal Israeli government in the same way I do not accept the stupid Brazilian coup government.”

Wikipedia: Reactions to the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict

  • On 10 July, Bolivia condemned the brutal Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip and called on Tel Aviv to cease hostilities. The Foreign Ministry also called on the international community to intervene to stop “the genocide” and stressed that “should respect and comply with international agreements and treaties.”
  • Brazil‘s Special Advisor for International Relations was quoted saying “For the love of God, what we have here is genocide, a massacre, to the point where top UN officials are starting to talk about war crimes”.
  • On 2 August, the mayor of Érpatak [Hungary], Mihaly Zoltan Orosz, led a demonstration against what he called the “freemason media” conspiracy to silence the “ongoing genocide” committed by the Israeli military against Hamas in Gaza.
  • On 11 July, President Daniel Ortega [Nicaragua] said he “expressed his solidarity with the Palestinian people and condemned the genocidal bombing of Israel. How are we going to condemn us not, at this time, the genocide being committed against the Palestinian people again? Now go over there 80 dead, children, youth of all ages. Who for that genocide?”
  • Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif [Pakistan] said: “I am saddened and disappointed to note the silence of international community against this injustice, the silence and ineffectiveness of the Muslim Ummah has made Palestinians more vulnerable and made Israel more aggressive. The world must stop Israel from this naked and brutal aggression”. He termed the Israeli atrocities against Palestinians in Gaza as ‘genocide,’ urging the world to stop Israel’s naked and brutal aggression.
  • Deputy Prime Minister Ridwan Hirsi Mohamed, who was attending the Muslim Scholars Forum in Istanbul, said that the international community has failed to oppose Israeli aggression against Muslims in Palestine. “The ongoing genocide committed by Israel against our brothers in Palestine is something that we can not accept. Killing innocent people of women and children, targeting hospitals, mosques and schools is something very hateful. We share the pain with Palestinians, as we strongly say that Somalia is very upset about what is going in Gaza.
  • Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan accused Israel of conducting “state terrorism” and a “genocide attempt” against the Palestinians. He also stated that “as long as children are being slaughtered in Palestine, normalisation of Turkey-Israel relations are no longer impossible”.

The Israeli Genocide Coverup by Luis Miranda

By not allowing UN representatives to enter its territory to conduct proper research into the allegations of war crimes and mass murder, Israel condemns itself to being labeled as a genocidal regime. The Government of Israel has denied entry to the country to the investigating committee appointed in August by the Human Rights Council of the UN, which aimed to clarify whether war crimes were committed in Gaza this summer during the Israeli attacks on Gaza.

Brazilian labor unions, political parties, social movements support Khalida Jarrar

We, the undersigned, denounce the invasion carried out by the Israeli army into the home of Palestinian Member of Parliament Khalida Jarrar, and the Israeli authorities’ military order, read by the soldiers, ordering Khalida to leave Ramallah to Jericho, which she would be forbidden to leave – which means, in practice, that she will be detained and may not exercise her mandate.

This is an illegal and illegitimate act by the Israeli authorities, who once again are dealing with the Palestinian parliamentarians with total disregard, as if they had command authority over them. Recall that Israel, as the occupying power, has a duty to protect the Palestinian civilian population in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza under international law, rather than persecuting, oppressing and massacring them.

This only strengthens our repudiation of the genocide committed by Israeli against the poeple of Gaza, and the systematic persecution of the inhabitants of the West Bank and Jerusalem with illegal arrests and home demolitions.

Brazil recalls envoy, condemns Gaza ‘genocide’ (Buenos Aires Herald, 2014)

The Brazilian government condemned the “genocide” in Gaza yesterday and recalled its ambassador to Tel Aviv, which prompted the Israeli Foreign Relations Ministry to accuse Brasilia of being “politically irrelevant” and of “promoting terrorism.”

“For the love of God, what we have here is genocide, a massacre, to the point where top UN officials are starting to talk about war crimes” against Palestinians, Brazil’s Special Adviser for International Relations Marco Aurelio García told reporters.

South American Women’s Solidarity and Struggle with the Palestinian People!

The group of women CLOC-Via Campesina South America consists of delegates from organizations in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, gathered from 12 to 16 July in the city of Quito, denouncing the Israeli state and its US ally, who in recent weeks have heightened militarism and expansionism in its imperial attempt to extinguish the liberation of Palestine, which is nothing but a genocide against a people.

Rural women demand respect for the principle of sovereignty and the right of farmers and Palestinian farmers, live, produce and stay on their land and territory. In that sense, echoing the international community express our solidarity against the genocidal invasion and colonial practices exercised by the Zionist state of Israel, which has proven to be a systematic violator of human rights and the resolutions of Nations United regarding Palestine.

Palestine is now a symbol of courage, wisdom and strength in their struggle for land, so we call to mobilize in embassies and lobbying with States to speak out for Palestine, for the life of men, mainly women and children who are being killed daily by Zionism.

To live in a world with less desilgualdad and peace, it is necessary to denounce the abuses suffered by the people of the world and even more so, genocide which is subjected to the Palestinian people. The, popular world social movements have to raise their voice of protest against the slaughter perpetrated in Palestine, seeing that Western governments are mostly silent accomplices in this action.

Ceasefire against Palestine
