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.

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.”

Take Action: Free Palestinian Refugees Held in US Migrant Detention Center 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.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network strongly condemns the detention of Hisham Ghalia and Mounis Hammouda in U.S. migrant detention and urges all to participate in the below action. Click here to take action.

Of course, the issue of migrant detention is not confined to the cases of Palestinian refugees; we join in the call for an immediate end to migrant detention – often indefinite – by U.S., Canada, Australia and other states. The detention of migrants and refugees is a violent act of criminalization that traumatizes traumatized people, tears apart families and subjects people to massive rights violations, in a context of racism and oppression. We also note the settler colonial nature of all of these states, built on the theft of Indigenous and Native land and genocide of Indigenous and Native people, while constructing detention centers to exclude migrants and refugees from this stolen land. We also note the racist migrant detention, attacks and criminalization by the Israeli state and institutions targeting African migrants and refugees, a vicious and anti-Black policy carried out by a settler colonial state based entirely on the dispossession of the Palestinian people, the theft of Palestinian land, and ongoing genocide.
