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 4 September Scotland’s national football team will once again play against Israel at Hampden Park stadium in clear breach of the Palestinian call for Boycott.
“Israel attacks and denies Palestinians right to play football and represent their country internationally so we will not let them play in peace!
Let’s show the world that we stand with the Palestinian people against the land theft, dispossession and genocide which they face at the hands of the racist state of Israel and its imperialist backers.

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  has spent August  regularly bombing Gaza,… a school here, farmland there.. 

Israel has shut down Gaza’s access to fuel needed for electricity  ,  stopped Gazans from fishing.

Medical facilities in Gaza were unable to cope before COVID-19. Medical supplies are less than minimal. Public water is unsafe.

COVID-19 is in Gaza.

The legal definition of genocide by the way, includes having the ‘intent’ to destroy a people.

Defacing of Olympia mural highlights Native American-Palestinian solidarity by Rachel Corrie Foundation For Peace & Justice

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 disavowal of founding violence is deeply embedded in the settler mindset in both the U.S. and Israel. Descendants of settlers strive to maintain this disavowal, laboring daily to forget that their/our presence in the place they/we call home is predicated on genocide, dispossession, and structural violence. For American settlers who support Israel, this disavowal is doubled. They run from their complicity in the U.S. colonial project while simultaneously perpetuating a false narrative of Israel as acting on redemption instead of displacement, on return instead of ethnic cleansing. It is difficult to ignore connections between the settler violence of the U.S. and Israel when these states openly collaborate to build identical surveillance systems and border walls, when Israeli settlers draw explicit comparison between their settler project and the U.S.’s genocidal concept of “Manifest Destiny,” or when one sees a map that directly ties the confiscation of land in one settler state to the confiscation of land in the other. The inability to reconcile one’s own role in settler violence, in either or both places, produces the kind of emotion that might induce someone to vandalize a solidarity mural near the top of its thirty-foot tall frame. In sum, this emotion also likely drove the perpetrator to act in honor of the hallmark of the settler mindset: simultaneous erasure and disavowal.

UAE Israel pact will not advance cause of the Palestinians by Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela

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.

Those who believe that the UAE Israel pact will advance peace in the middle east live in a fool’s paradise. Israel has used the pacts it signed with Egypt in 1979 and with Jordan in 1994 to legitimise its occupation and has continued expansion of illegal settlements unabated.
A legitimate peace can only come from full recognition of the Palestinians’ fundamental human rights, restoration of justice and political rights, holding Apartheid Israel accountable for the continued genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, release of all political prisoners, right of return of all Palestinians in the diaspora, and return of all occupied territory to its rightful owners.

Events and Protests for the Days of Resistance for Palestine: Get involved and take action August 7 through 9! by Samidoun

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, the program of Israeli annexation continues to threaten Palestinians in the West Bank, including the most fertile agricultural land of the Jordan Valley, which is still slated for Israel’s latest land grab. Of course, this is simply the continuation of over 72 years of land theft, dispossession, apartheid and genocide – but it requires continued mobilization and action to confront, alongside the siege on Gaza, the mass imprisonment of Palestinians, the demolition of homes, the denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return and further war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Mandela arrested 58 years ago for incitement to violence by Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela

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.

[T]he Apartheid Israeli state has demonstrated its gross violation of international law and made a mockery of United Nations Resolutions without any consequences. On the contrary it continues to act with impunity and continues to commit acts that constitute a crime against humanity, ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Palestinians.
In the face of the above we continue to advance our principled call to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.

HTR Summer Fellowship Must Take an Anti-Zionist Stance on Harvard PSC

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.

[T]he Apartheid Israeli state has demonstrated its gross violation of international law and made a mockery of United Nations Resolutions Zionism as a genocidal and ethnocidal political ideology does not exist in isolation. Zionism as propagated by Theodore Herzl and effectuated by war criminals — and founding fathers of the state of Israel — David Ben Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Menachem Begin, Ariel Sharon, Yossef Nachmmani, Ezra Danin, and many others, is deeply rooted in, and shares theoretical and practicable frameworks with, white supremacy, settler-colonialism, ethnonationalism and fascism. We have a moral obligation to resoundingly reject each of these ideologies of division, hate, and exclusion.

Call for solidarity after arrests following raids on Palestinian cultural centre in Jerusalem on Morning Star

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 campaign slammed the attacks as “a form of intellectual and cultural terrorism practised by the occupying power [Israel] against Palestinian existence and identity in Jerusalem.”
Samidoun said the raids “come hand in hand with the pursuit of ethnic cleansing and genocide in Jerusalem through home demolitions, land confiscation, extrajudicial killings and residency revocations in an attempt to erase the Palestinian and Arab character of the city.
“The arrests … make clear that Israel is once more escalating its attacks on Palestinian cultural institutions and Palestinian culture itself in the city. We urge all artists of conscience to speak out and join the call for their immediate release.”
