Bachelor of arts and education student Jordan Rizk implored students to keep campaigning: “I’m here for unconditional support for the Palestinian people, who undergo apartheid, decades of genocide, and I’m here as a young Arab male to continue that legacy of my ancestors who fought against this colonial ideology.

“The reason why I came today was to give a voice to uplift those in the community at UNSW who want to promote the Palestinian cause.”

The protests were organised by the state branch of the National Union of Students as part of the Books Not Bombs campaign, which aims to end the links between universities and the military.

Pro-Palestine activists reject ‘threatening’ behaviour accusation on Middle East Monitor

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.

Regev, explained human rights activists, “has a long history of excusing, apologising and justifying [Israel’s] murder, torture and genocide as well as land theft from the indigenous population of Palestine.” They accused the library — which appears only to have disclosed Regev’s attendance after the event, fearing public outrage — of going “against everything the Linen Hall has stood for” and demanded an investigation into how the Israeli Ambassador was allowed to address the community in Belfast in such an “underhanded” way.

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.
Pro-Palestinian Dutch activist Margriet Teders passed away last Tuesday in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She was 91.
…Teders hung the Palestinian flag on her house walls. She also raised it on her apartment balcony so people passing by would be reminded of the justice of the Palestinian cause, as she used to say. “Sign here to demolish the Israeli wall in the occupied Palestine,” and “The Apartheid state is committing genocide,” were only a few of the slogans Teders used to hold during protests calling for freedom of Palestinians.

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 February 1, the York Federation of Students (YFS) assembled a crowd of about 150 students in Vari Hall—filling its three floors and overrunning the then-ongoing poster sale—for “Drop Fees, Not Bombs,” a rally to demonstrate student support for York to divest from all arms manufacturers and to implement free tuition.

YFS President Rawan Habib said: “The reason many of us are here today is because of a violent process of commonization of genocide, and we can’t forget that.”

Moe Alqasem from Students Against Israeli Apartheid—one of five founding organizations of the YU Divest campaign—emphasized the struggle of Palestinian victims, particularly civilians killed by “Israel when it goes into Gaza,” with weapons provided by the five global arms manufacturers York accepts investments from: Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, Textron, and Amphenol.
