Gaza: Stop the genocide! Grand gathering on December 16th in Paris by CAPJPO – EuroPalestine

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.

We will show our solidarity with all those who are in the dark and cold because of an inhuman siege, while our cities are illuminated. And together we will send a strong message to our leaders who are complicit in a deadly blockade that starves, despairs and slowly kills two million women, men and children.

How can we accept such a genocide in the 21st century? Total imprisonment for more than 10 years, imposed by Israel with the complicity of Egypt, bombing, deprivation of drugs, drinking water and electricity.

Pro-Palestine group to march to Parliament on Jacaranda FM 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 PSC’s Terry Crawford-Browne says they want answers from the African National Congress (ANC).

“The ANC is meeting in conference this weekend. One of the resolutions before the conference is the downgrading of diplomatic relations of Israel. The government has verbally declared its support for Palestine but has done nothing in practice internationally. This is a major disappointment to the South Africans that assumed that human rights would govern foreign policy post-1994… We want them to immediately sever diplomatic relations with the apartheid state of Israel. We want the ANC government to support a Palestinian application to the International Criminal Court of charges against the leaders of both the Israeli and US governments of genocide.”

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.

…following President Trump’s announcement the UN’s General Assembly on December 7th passed nine draft resolutions assuring some protection to the lives and rights of Palestinians… These draft resolutions reveal an ongoing genocidal persecution of the Palestinian people, both the fact of their suffering and humanity’s assessment of a terrible wrong.

More than a thousand people rallied and marched through the streets of San Francisco December 9 in solidarity with Palestine and the struggle for self-determination, all in the wake of Trump’s bald declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Chants echoed throughout Civic Center: “There is only one solution: intifada, revolution!” and “Netanyahu you can’t hide, we charge you with genocide!”

Scores of Palestinians Hurt as Jerusalem Protests Rage on The Chronicle

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.

Meanwhile, traditional chief and MP Mandla Mandela said on Thursday Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is an act of perverse incitement and aggression against the Palestinians and all freedom loving people in the world. “It affirms that, once again, the USA regime is on the wrong side of history. Just as it supported apartheid South Africa’s brutality it now unashamedly supports apartheid Israel and its ongoing genocide in Occupied Palestine,” he said in a statement.

Homeland Insecurity: Palestine’s Refusal to Die Haunts Israeli Colonial Celebrations by Elliott Gabriel

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 Zionist movement was a European-backed colonial movement whose goal was not to coexist with the Palestinian people, but to take their land and to expel them and replace them.”.. On November 29, 1947, the U.N. voted to create separate, independent Arab and Jewish states. “That resolution marked an international blessing for the destruction of Palestine and the expulsion of the Palestinian people,” Abunimah said.

… “Ethnic cleansing can seem abstract, but it functions on the ground through basic Israeli policies,” Carmel said… “This directly translates into human suffering in the form of constant house demolitions, which can happen to a family even for expanding their kitchen… The Nakba is ongoing for these families; they simply lack legal recourse,” Carmel said.

… Palestinians also face denial of their participation in the Israeli economy. Increasingly, local Arabs are no longer sought out, even as a permanent source of cheap and highly exploitable labor. According to William Robinson, the problem poses an ominous dilemma for impoverished Palestinians. “With the globalization of Israel and the Middle East, there has been a mass influx of transnational migrant labor into Israel and the surrounding countries. Filipinos, Sri Lankans, Africans and others work in Israeli agriculture, industry, and services. Palestinian labor is no longer needed, which makes them surplus humanity,” Robinson said. “The only thing Israel needs from them is their land. This subjects the Palestinians to the specter of genocide and constitutes a structural underpinning to the intensification of Israeli apartheid.”

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.

Moshe Ya’alon, Israeli Defense Minister from 2002 to 2005, said that he is “proud” of being the official that killed the most Palestinians, according to Safa News agency.

After characterizing Palestinians and Arabs as “terrorists,” according to the Middle East Monitor, Ya’alon added that he topped the list among all Israeli government officials in killings of Palestinians during a meeting held in Herzliya over the weekend.

Former Israeli Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak also boasted about the large number of Palestinians he had killed, according to Safa News. Between 2008 and 2014, Barack and Ya’alon led three major military offensives against Palestinians in Gaza. Some 4,000 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli occupation forces and over 20,000 were wounded.

Thirsty for Justice: How Israel Deprives the Palestinians of Access to Water by Zak Witus

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.

Water is one of the key components of life as we know it. If we allow our country to continue to green light Israel’s dehydration of the Palestinians, we will be aiding and abetting all further deaths and illnesses that befall the Palestinians living in the Occupied Territories as a result. Worse, if present trends continue, we will be responsible for yet another genocide against an Indigenous people.

Unlike past generations, many of us now recognize and regret how our nation nearly exterminated the Native people of North America. But what good is this retrospective shame if we don’t act to prevent our country from exterminating another Native people, the Palestinians? The reality is, if we do nothing, the US, through our ally Israel, will surely repeat these darkest chapters of US history. We can’t let that happen.
