German civil servants demand ‘immediate’ end to Israeli arms supplies by James Jackson

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 group of German civil servants have written to Chancellor Olaf Scholz and other senior ministers calling on the government to “cease arm deliveries to the Israeli government with immediate effect”.

“Israel is committing crimes in Gaza that are in clear contradiction to international law and thus to the Constitution, which we are bound to as federal civil servants and public employees,” the statement says, citing the International Court of Justice’s ruling in January that Israel’s military actions are “plausible acts of genocide”.

… The civil servants sent the statement via email to ministries last week, with the disclaimer that “due to the sensitive content and the excessive state repression that criticism in this area is met with, we want to remain anonymous”.

… Internationally, civil servants are increasingly speaking out against Western support of Israel. In February, 800 civil servants in the US and the European Union signed a “transatlantic statement” that warned Western support for Israel could amount to “grave violations of international law”, and complained of expert advice being ignored.

Open Letter from the Climate Movement: We stand in solidarity with Palestinians in their struggle for liberation on Mondoweiss

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.

Settler colonialism and imperialism fundamentally shape the world we live in, the struggles that connect us, and the climate emergency we face. The expansion of the fossil fuel industry, against which we fight, is facilitated through colonial extraction and military operations in the Middle East and beyond. The US military-industrial complex, a ‘tremendous fountain of CO2 pollution’, dispossesses indigenous people of their rightful land in Turtle Island and abroad.2 Amidst its ongoing genocidal assault which attempts to ethnically cleanse Palestinians from Gaza, Israel has handed out 12 gas exploration licenses to companies including BP and ENI off the coast of the strip. It is this system of planetary destruction that produces, motivates, and profits from the weapons fueling Israel’s genocide.

Pro-Palestinian Dutch activist passes away at 91 on Wafa

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.

Arab Israeli MK says Israelis remain silent while Palestinians oppressed, just like Germans under Nazis on i24NEWS

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.

“During Kristallnacht thousands of Jewish businesses and synagogues were burned, while the Germans remained silent. Today, as the homes of Palestinians are burned, as churches and people are burned alive – the majority in Israel remains silent,” she said, drawing a comparison between Nazi Germany and and the current situation in Israel and the West Bank… “The central lesson of the Crystal Night has not been learned,” said Zoabi. Accusing Israel of “ethnic cleansing” modeled on Nazism, she denounced half a dozen Israeli officials by name for what she referred to as recent efforts to “justify the use of violence toward Palestinians.”

ILPS: US and Israel officials guilty of war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity

As demanded by the peoples and all justice and peace-loving forces, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) calls for the prosecution before the International Criminal Court of Israeli officials and military commanders for committing war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity, and US leaders for aiding, abetting, and assisting in the commission of these crimes during the murderous rampage of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in their 50-day military aggression on Gaza codenamed Operation Protective Edge… US officials have aided, abetted and assisted the commission by Israel of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity by providing the latter with the military means to commit these crimes…

The ILPS supports the action taken by the US’ National Lawyers Guild (NLG), Center for Constitutional Rights, International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL), Arab Lawyers Union, and American Association of Jurists in urging Fatou Bensouda, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to initiate an investigation of war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity committed by Israeli leaders, and aided and abetted by US officials in Gaza.
