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 National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] strongly condemns the continued violent attacks on Gaza by the Apartheid Israel military. The continued repression and genocide of innocent Palestinians must stop.

…Even though a truce was agreed upon on, the world can no longer be silent about the continued genocide of Palestinians by the Apartheid Israeli government. The people of Gaza live in constant fear. We have to stop Israel by boycotting all that the Israeli government uses to fund these inhumane attacks on the Palestinian people. We call on all trade unionists, all friendly countries to Boycott, Divestment and Sanction apartheid Israel.

LETTER: Holocaust atrocities do not justify Israel’s attacks on Palestinians on Business Day

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.

Palestinians are merely following the example of Polish Jews during the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto uprising, who so courageously resisted German Nazis. Israel’s recurring wars against the people of Gaza, including the currently termed Operation Breaking Dawn launched on August 5, clearly highlight the parallels between the Warsaw Ghetto and Gaza as an Israeli concentration camp. Allan Wolman’s repeated smears of everything South African ignore the reality that Israel is an apartheid state that is guilty of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The National Union of Metalworkers spokesperson, Phakamile Hlubi-Majola, during the Global South rally launching the initiative in 2020, calls for #UNinvestigateApartheid on the BDS National Committee Twitter account

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.

“Ultimately I think this is the goal of this rally, is to mobilise the world, mobilise the globe, mobilise the working class, mobilise the masses to defend the people of Palestine. This is a moral and just war. No other position on the issue of Palestine is acceptable, quite frankly. Because if you’re going to support Israel, then you are supporting genocide, you are supporting racism, you are supporting ethnic cleansing.”

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 call on all producers and exporters of perishable food products to boycott Apartheid Israel as long as the regime continues its occupation of Palestinian lands and the perpetration of crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and genocide.

Has AU Declared War On Member States by Granting Israel ‘Observer Status’? by Iqbal Jassat

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.

While the controversy rages on, it is important to remind AU member states to be mindful of their responsibility to adhere to various international conventions which Israel is in violation of. As a serial perpetrator, the Zionist entity is not only guilty of the crime of Apartheid; it stands accused of war crimes and incremental genocide.
International humanitarian law of occupation contains a prohibition against deporting or transferring parts of the civilian population of the Occupying Power into Occupied Territory. Such illegal transfers carried out by Israel are to alter the demographic composition of the population of the occupied territory…

It’s time to renew our pledge and say never never never again by Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela

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.

SAs we repledge never never and never again the cries of our Palestinian brothers and sisters under siege in Al Aqsa, East Jerusalem and all of occupied Palestine falls on the deaf ears of the world. The hypocrisy of those who claim to mediate peace or promote normalisation but have allowed the proliferation of illegal settler expansion; Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem is a case in point. Ourselves as South Africans erstwhile beneficiaries of global solidarity and the Anti-Apartheid Movement cannot sit by idly. We cannot countenance normalisation of trade and travel with Apartheid Israel; we have a moral obligation to do more just as the Palestinian leadership under Fateh despite their own woes shared moral, financial and military support to our struggle. We must legislate support for the BDS campaign as a matter of urgency and quid pro quo for Apartheid Israel’s continued ethnic cleansing, genocide and extermination of Palestinian presence from the Land of their birth.

LETTER: Israel will reach its tipping point by Gunvant Govindjee

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.

Notwithstanding Israeli propaganda, there is a growing international awareness of Israel’s destruction of more than 500 Palestinian villages over a period of two years (1947-1949), its cruel expulsion of the majority of people of historical Palestine, its refusal to grant them the right of return, its blatant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, its brutal occupation of Palestinian territories since 1967, its acquiescence of the continued theft of Palestinian property by settlers, its connivance in the destruction of Palestinian crops and property, its incremental genocide, and its extreme and questionable methods to achieve the Zionification of East Jerusalem.

LETTER: Roadmap to Apartheid should be widely broadcast by Terry Crawford-Browne

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 Western Cape judgment has implications far beyond confirming our constitutional rights in support of freedom of expression in SA. Roadmap to Apartheid should now be shown throughout SA and globally, including on television, and thus begin to roll back spineless media and political collusion with Israeli war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity in Palestine.

South Africa: New Bill Wants SA to Halt Trade With Israel on All Africa

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 Implementation and Protection of Palestinian Solidarity Rights Bill is a citizen’s bill, written by human rights attorney Ziyaad Patel and endorsed by Mandela, Nelson Mandela’s grandson, who is one of the ruling party’s parliamentarians. The bill was discussed at an online seminar on 20 March organised by the South African Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Coalition as part of Israeli Apartheid Week. 
… “We know that the Palestinian cause is at a tipping point where Palestinians are undergoing an incremental genocide. South Africa sits with a huge responsibility and we need to be taking the Palestinian cause to the next level,” said Patel.
