Protesters march through the Mission to point out troubles in Gaza on San Francisco 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.

The marchers unfurled a massive Palestinian flag and carried it down Mission Street from the 24th Street and Mission BART station, past vendors sprinkling chili and lime on fruit cups, past the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and past produce markets where customers juggled plastic bags of avocados and corn in their arms while taking videos on their cell phones of the passing throng.
“People, people, choose a side, human rights or genocide?” the demonstrators chanted.

Interfaith coalition of activists and organizations to rally on anniversary of deadly March of Return protest on South Florida Sun Sentinel

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 is a country that openly practices ethnic cleansing of Palestinians,” Mugilan said. “Even today innocent Palestinian school kids are being executed by Israel’s state-sponsored terror. It is important to show that as a community we stand in solidarity with the oppressed and the underprivileged.”
Mugilan also objected to claims that BDS is anti-semitic, saying it is specifically targeted at the Israeli government, not anyone of a particular religion or ethnicity.
“BDS is not a campaign that targets Jews but is a campaign against the practices and policies of a state that exercises genocide, crimes against humanity, acts of racism, and apartheid,” he said.

Democrats Say No to Largest Pro-Israeli Lobby on AlBawaba

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 AIPAC conference kicked off on Sunday amid protests by Palestinian rights advocates who waved Palestinian flags outside the Washington Convention Center. “I’m here today because it’s time that the world understands what the reality is in occupied Palestine,” Donna Nassor, an activist, said at the rally. “It’s been 70 plus years of incremental genocide. I’m also here because the American people need to understand what our tax dollars are doing and how it is causing suffering to Palestinians, as we support war criminals in Israel.”

SUPER UW condemns Jackson School’s speaker, Alon Tal on The Daily

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.

By advancing its discriminatory work within the JNF and GZA, Israel aims to divert attention away from their acts of genocide and war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories under the guise of environmentalism and sustainability. Greenwashing is when ethnic cleansing is masqueraded as environmental action, and Israel has attempted to rebrand their war crimes through promoting their so-called “green” organizations at conferences around the world. The absence of Palestine past, present, and future in Alon Tal’s extensive work reveals clearly that his vision and Israel’s green policies are nothing but, what Jasbir Puar called, “Israel’s project of rehabilitation through the spatial, affective, and corporeal debilitation of Palestine.” It is imperative to understand that social justice remains a core of environmental justice, and that the framing of environmental issues can never be separated from indigenous struggles for land, resources, and decolonization.

Petition to Prime Minister of Canada/Premier ministre du Canada Justin Trudeau: Stop the genocide and illegal occupation/destruction of Palestine by Robert Saemerow

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.

Stop the genocide and illegal occupation/destruction of Palestine. Israel is bulldozing villages and homes. Destroying Palestinian lives by its illegal occupation and crimes against humanity. Shooting unarmed men, women, children, medics and reporters. Now facing a UN backlash I call upon my Canadian government to support Palestine. Something that is long overdue. We need to put sanctions and tariffs on products and companies owned by Israel. It is the right and Canadian thing to do. Ireland is doing this. Canada should as well because “we stand on guard for thee.”
