Tampa students arrested for protesting on campus on FightBack! 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.

“USF and the police demonstrated another act against the voices of students,” stated Laith Hader of the USF chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). “I was there to give a speech about USF’s record of suppressing voices of pro-Palestine activists. Many of those who speak out against the Israeli system of apartheid and genocide are being doxed, fired from their jobs, investigated or interrogated by the state, and are falsely framed as anti-Semitic, all while neo-Nazis and white supremacists are given their ‘free speech’ without any repercussions from the state or its institutions.”

Paralysing International Criminal Justice by Farhad Malekian

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.

Even though the injustices occurring against the Palestinians are alarming, no government is assisting the victims.

The Palestinian population has been subjected to genocide, annihilation, banishment, and terror at the hands of the grandchildren of those who themselves greatly suffered from the genocide in Europe

Welcome to the Nakba: notes from the epicentre of an apocalypse by Micaela Sahhar

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.

Palestinians are not people ‘of Palestinian heritage’. That is to misunderstand the meaning of our diaspora. That is to misunderstand the nature of ethnic cleansing, forcible removal, spaciocide, genocide, the weaponising of language that would have us disappear in plain sight. Palestinians are not ghosts. Although it is true that we have the power of haunting (what criminal is not haunted by the flesh and blood evidence of their crime?). When a Palestinian tells you they are a Palestinian, this is not an opinion.

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.

Hamas movement welcomes the report released by the UN human rights office that lists companies that have relations with Israeli settlements located in the West Bank. The movement thinks that such a move is a step in the right track to isolate the Israeli occupation and hold it accountable for its crimes committed against the Palestinian people, the foremost of them is genocide and displacing the Palestinian people from their land to establish Israeli settlements.
