Action Alert

Mobilize now for #UNGA77. Take these 5 actions and demand #UNinvestigateApartheid.

We need your support to ensure the UNGA responds to the Palestinian demand for freedom, justice and equality!

On 13 September, the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly will begin in New York, with representatives of governments from around the world. Now is our chance to ensure they hear the global call for a UN-led investigation of Israeli apartheid. 

Decades of resistance on the ground and international solidarity, coupled with measures taken by the UN confined apartheid in South Africa to the dustbin of history. Among others, the UN imposed a military embargo and called on all states to end military, economic, cultural and diplomatic relations with South Africa’s apartheid regime. 

For decades Palestinian civil society and solidarity groups have denounced Israel’s settler-colonial regime as including apartheid against the entire Indigenous Palestinian people. Today, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, B’Tselem, and 100’s of institutions and prominent individuals are part of the global consensus that- Israel is guilty of the crime against humanity of apartheid. 

Palestinians are enduring, and resisting, an ongoing Nakba of ethnic cleansing, land theft and massacres. Most recently, during its 3-day bombardment of Gaza, apartheid Israel murdered 49+ Palestinians including 18 children. 

Meaningful solidarity can help #EndIsraeliApartheid.

We need you to take these five actions now:

  1. Join our Twitterstorm in the hours before the opening session of #UNGA77 between 20:00 and 22:00 Palestine Time on Monday 12th  September. Find a variety of pre-prepared Tweets and images. Or share your own message calling for #UNinvestigateApartheid and #MilitaryEmbargo.

  2. Take part in our Global Day of Action on Monday, 19th September. Contact your local Palestine Solidarity group for details of direct actions in your area. You can also take part online by sharing prepared messages and images and call for #UNinvestigateApartheid. 

  3. Sign our E-Action and send an email to the President of the UNGA and the UN Secretary General, demanding #UNinvestigateApartheid.

  4. Use the template letter found here to write to your political representatives demanding they act to ensure that  UNGA77 will speak out and take action against Israeli apartheid.

  5. As citizens of conscience who want a world without racism, oppression and apartheid, help create/support Apartheid Free Zones in the local businesses of your region, in cultural associations or in activist spaces in which you participate, or help create Apartheid Free Churches where applicable.
