On B’tselem’s Declaration: Israeli Apartheid from the River to the Sea by Jeremy Salt

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 and the policy of apartheid were born in the same year, 1948, Israel as a colonial-settler declared unilaterally over occupied Palestine on May 15 and apartheid as the election-winning policy of South Africa’s National Party on May 26. On December 9 the same year, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. The convention describes genocide as acts intended to destroy “in whole or part” a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group. There is no other way to describe Israel’s intentions in 1948.

Pro-Palestine group to march to Parliament on Jacaranda FM 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.

The PSC’s Terry Crawford-Browne says they want answers from the African National Congress (ANC).

“The ANC is meeting in conference this weekend. One of the resolutions before the conference is the downgrading of diplomatic relations of Israel. The government has verbally declared its support for Palestine but has done nothing in practice internationally. This is a major disappointment to the South Africans that assumed that human rights would govern foreign policy post-1994… We want them to immediately sever diplomatic relations with the apartheid state of Israel. We want the ANC government to support a Palestinian application to the International Criminal Court of charges against the leaders of both the Israeli and US governments of genocide.”

Changing the narrative, from BDS to antifa by Nada Elia, September 2017

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, as anti-fascist protesters are described by the mainstream as “violent thugs,” and as Americans are being told that racism is part of the fabric of this country and can therefore never be completely eliminated, the struggle for Palestinian rights offers an alternative vision: we don’t have to accept injustice, even when the system is set up, has always been set up, to perpetuate it.  We may be called terrorists, “thugs,” our tactics and strategies may be unpopular, but we can prevail, and rather than settle for “pacification” through extreme oppression, we can aspire to genuine peace—an outcome of justice and equality.  After all, Israel, just like the US, is a country founded on genocide and settler-colonialism, with the aim of establishing and maintaining the superiority of one perceived ethnicity.  And if we can question and challenge that fundamental injustice in one country, we can question and challenge it in another.

Trans-Led Coalition Shuts Down Chicago Pride Parade on Radical Faggot

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.

We rise in solidarity with Palestinian liberation, including the call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions!
The Chicago Pride Parade has a long history of allowing organizations that engage in pinkwashing–the promotion of Israel’s supposed positive record on LGBTQ rights as a means to distract from their brutal crimes against Palestine–to participate in the Parade. The presence of groups like A Wider BridgeStand With Us, and the Israeli Consulate General dishonors the legacy of the trans women of color who galvanized our movement. As an explicitly anti-Zionist collective leading an explicitly anti-Zionist coalition which includes Jewish, Muslim and Palestinian organizers, we reject any celebration of the illegal Israeli state in the Chicago Pride Parade. Trans and queer people will not be used as propaganda for a genocidal, settler-colonial state, in an attempt to spread racist and Islamophobic tropes about Palestinian culture. Pinkwashing, Zionism, settler colonialism, and genocide have no place in queer struggle. As a coalition, we proudly join the calls to free Palestine!

Zionism’s problem with intersectionality by Shaheen Nassar

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.

Intersectionality is vested in a shared experience of racial subjugations, humiliation, and exploitation. But even if those connections didn’t abundantly exist, it would still not justify the ethnic supremacy, settler colonial genocide and racial segregation that Israel inflicts on Palestinians.

Even if it didn’t exist, it wouldn’t justify wholesale torture of Palestinians in Israeli prisons. And even if black, Latino, Native, and LGBTQ populations didn’t already identify with Palestine, it still wouldn’t justify the bombardment of the starving, impoverished masses of Gaza, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocents, including my four-year-old cousin Deema Isleem, who was incinerated in her father’s arms, to clear the land for racially exclusive settlement.
