From the Palestine Solidarity Campaign

See below and attached, how you can take action in solidarity with the Palestinian people, against the threat of annexation by the state of Israel.

Please visit the PSC website for a petition against annexationhttps://www.palestinecampaign.org/speak-out-to-stop-annexation-now/

As you may have heard, we’ve planned a day of action against Israel’s planned annexation of Palestinian land for this Saturday 4th Julyand it would be fantastic if you could participate. Whether with your family/friends in person or perhaps gathering 6 people through a zoom call, we’d love to include you in this action. Please find the info and full instructions below and let us know whether you’ll be participating!

About

The Israeli government has made its intentions clear. Starting in July they plan to unilaterally annex large swathes of the illegally occupied West Bank, declaring the territory an integral part of Israel proper. Annexation, illegal under international law, is the forcible and unilateral acquisition of territory over which it has no recognised sovereignty and to make it an integral part of the state – in this case, Israel.

This act would be the culmination of years of land theft, displacement of Palestinians, and illegal settlement of occupied Palestinian land.

While solidifying its grip on Palestinian land, Israel will continue to ramp up its system of institutionalised racist discrimination against the Palestinian people as a whole, whether under occupation, as second-class citizens in Israel, or in exile, treatment that amounts to the crime of apartheid under international law. In this vein, the Israeli government have already announced they will not grant Palestinians in annexed areas citizenship rights.

The international community has a duty to respond to such egregious violations of international law. Palestinian civil society has called for “effective action” by nation-states to stop annexation. This means applying international law on trade with illegal Israeli settlements, and enacting sanctions, including by placing a two-arms embargo on Israel.

The Action

Complying with Coronavirus restrictions, we are calling for groups made up of no more than 6 people (family, friends, colleagues, in a zoom meeting etc), adhering to social distancing regulations, to demonstrate by holding signs with the slogans Stop Annexation, Sanctions Now and End Apartheid.
