URGENT Call from Palestine to States Parties of the Genocide Convention: Support South Africa’s ICJ Suit Against Israel over its Gaza Genocide by The Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Coordinating Committee (PAACC)

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.

  • 2 January 2024 – The Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Coordinating Committee (PAACC), comprising the Anti-Apartheid Department of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the BDS Movement, the Palestinian Human Rights Organization Council (PHROC) and the Palestinian NGO Network (PNGO), salutes South Africa for its application to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel for violating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in Gaza. Affirming that “Israel has engaged in, is engaging in and risks further engaging in genocidal acts against the Palestinian people in Gaza,” South Africa has requested the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to indicate provisional measures in order to protect Palestinian rights from “further, severe and irreparable harm.” Dozens of UN experts have described the humanitarian situation in Gaza as “apocalyptic,” warning of a “genocide in the making,” as have hundreds of international law scholars, including genocide experts, and a senior UN human rights official.
  • We call on all States Parties to the Genocide Convention to urgently and fully support the proceedings and in particular, the request by South Africa for provisional measures. In doing so we call for an immediate suspension of military operations, and the implementation of all measures to prevent genocide, including the rescinding of military orders forcing the transfer of Palestinians in Gaza, and practices denying access to adequate food, water, fuel and humanitarian supplies. Our coalitions and networks, representing the Palestinian political leadership and every strand of Palestinian civil society, fully support the proceedings which are vital to ensure that States comply with their international obligations to end the risk of genocide and genocidal acts, and urge the adoption and implementation of all the requested provisional measures to bring the genocidal destruction of the Palestinian people to an end.

After 74 years, Israel’s gradual ethnic cleansing of Palestinians continues, through the continuous “Judaization” operations in the Galilee and the Negev, and settlement operations and annexation of Palestinian lands in the West Bank, especially in Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, which confirms that the Nakba continues.
…Zionism, which arose in the context of European imperialist and colonial expansion, is the intellectual and ideological basis of settler-colonialism in Palestine. It is a racist, genocidal ideology that encourages terrorism and fascism, as our people has witnessed for 74 years.
