Silence is Zionism’s only defense by Nicki Kattoura

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 discourse around Palestine and Zionism has changed dramatically in the last year as a result—no doubt a product of Israel’s barbarous siege and assault on Gaza that murdered over 250 Palestinians, 67 of which were children. Palestinians were quite literally using their last living moments documenting the carnage, the massacre, and violence that the Israeli military that receives close to four billion dollars of U.S. tax dollars a year unleashed against a stateless, open-air prison.  It was in these moments that people started questioning: how are we seeing a genocide occur in real-time but still centering the personal injury of Zionists crying “antisemitism”?

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.

Dear Wellington City Council,

Please provide all correspondence, emails, agendas, briefing notes, text messages etc regarding the Mayor of Wellington’s decision to oppose the commemoration of Nakba Day, recognizing the ongoing campaign of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the legitimate native population of Palestine/’Israel’.

This should particularly include communications with the ‘Israeli’ embassy, and its various subject organizations such as the American embassy, the ‘Israel Institute of NZ’, the so-called ‘Indigenous Coalition for Israel’.

Yours faithfully,
Mohammed Khan

Nakba74: The ‘voice of Palestine’ will be ignored no longer by Omar Zahzah

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.

A blue, bullet proof PRESS vest and a sniper-shot to the head, just below the helmet line: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

A funeral for a nationally beloved journalist murdered by a colonial regime that is overrun by Zionist occupation forces who beat pallbearers and nearly overturn the coffin completely: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

International inaction at a fascist colonial ethno-state that slaughters Indigenous people at will, at random, and for nothing more or less than the “crime” of existing: this is the anatomy of a genocide.

The Palestinian Nakba: In Memory and the Present by Robert Inlakesh

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 Nakba (“Catastrophe”) refers to the forced displacement of at least 750,000 Palestinians from their homes during Israel’s creation in 1948. Thousands of Palestinians were massacred by Israeli forces as Palestinian families fled in terror to neighboring countries and to the West Bank and Gaza.
But the Nakba never ended.
Israel has continued its occupation, land theft, ethnic cleansing, and genocide of the Palestinian people

Minnesotans march on 74th anniversary of Al Nakba by Meredith Aby-Keirstead

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 United States gives the Israeli apartheid state around $4 billion in military aid every single year. Aid that is used to raid refugee camps. Aid that is used to hold Palestinian political prisoners. Aid that is used to seize homes and land. Aid that is used to kill journalists. Aid that props up apartheid and genocide. President Joe Biden is on record saying, ‘America’s support for Israel’s security is unshakable, period.’”

CUNY Law faculty, several law orgs, endorse student’s BDS resolution against Israel on The Arab American 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.

Law school faculty at a major university in New York has joined the ranks of educational and professional organizations supporting the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) and recognition of Palestinian rights… The resolution calls for a boycott of Israeli apartheid government and Israeli companies that take advantage of and support Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, thereby systematically ending long standing relationships between major U.S. colleges like CUNY and those occupation entities. In doing so, the resolution calls out CUNY’s complicity “in the ongoing apartheid, genocide, and war crimes perpetrated by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people through its investments in and contracts with companies profiting off of Israeli war crimes.”

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.

Contrasting the vivacity of those taking to the streets with the dead-end of capitalist social media, Samidoun and Nai’s songs were censored by Youtube. But despite everything, a century of cultural genocide had failed to erase and silence the people.

Letter to the Editor: The University is denying the genocide of Palestinians on The Rocky Mountain Collegian

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 Zionist insistence that Israel is the universal embodiment of a Jewish desire for political power leaves Jews around the world on the hook for the violence inflicted upon the Palestinian people; if anything, this position is antisemitic. It is essential to understand that downplaying genocide as Zionists do is an effectually denialist position. In a few words: The University is denying genocide.
