Outraged at apartheid Israel’s crimes against Palestinians? Here are 5 things you can do.

In many countries, governments and corporations are deeply complicit with Israel’s decades-old regime of military occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid, just as they were complicit in the apartheid regime in South Africa. Israel can only sustain this regime of oppression with international complicity. 

Here are the 5 most effective things YOU can do to challenge this complicity and support the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice and equality:

  1. Work with progressive networks to pressure parliament and government to (a) end all military-security cooperation and trade (military funding in the US case) with apartheid Israel and similarly criminal regimes of oppression worldwide, (b) ban all goods/services of companies operating in Israel’s illegal colonial settlements; and (c) demand a UN investigation of Israeli apartheid.

  2. Mobilize pressure in your community, trade union, association, church, social network, student government/union, city council, cultural center, or other organization to declare it an Apartheid Free Zone (AFZ), ending all relations with apartheid Israel and companies that are complicit in its system of oppression.

  3. Boycott products/services of, and/or mobilize institutional pressure to divest from, Israeli and international companies and banks that are complicit in Israeli war crimes and crimes against humanity. This includes all Israeli banks (Leumi, Hapoalim, etc.) and major multinationals such as: Elbit Systems, HP, G4S/Allied Universal, AXA, CAF, PUMA, Caterpillar, General Mills/Pillsbury, Hyundai Heavy Industries, JCB, Volvo, Barclays Bank, Alstom, Motorola Solutions, and CEMEX.

  4. Cancel all academic, cultural, sports, and tourism engagements in Israel or supported/sponsored by Israel (or its lobby groups and complicit institutions).

  5. Join a BDS campaign or a strategic Palestine solidarity group near you to act collectively and effectively.

Channel your anger and mobilize to dismantle apartheid and all forms of racism and oppression.

BDS is the most effective response to Trump's apartheid plan

January 28, 2020

Trump's "deal of the century" aims to cement Israel’s apartheid rule over the Palestinian people, and is the final nail in the coffin of the moribund "peace process"

The plan Trump hatched with Israel’s far-right government aims to cement Israel’s apartheid rule over the Palestinian people. It is the final nail in the coffin of the moribund "peace process", making #BDS the most effective response.

Trump’s so-called “deal of the century” endorses Israel’s longstanding policy of permanent occupation, colonialism and apartheid over the Palestinian people, and gives Israel the green light to continue to commit war crimes and human rights violations.

In this context of impunity, efforts to end international complicity with Israeli apartheid and to enforce measures of accountability are more important than ever, whether by bringing Israeli officials to trial in the ICC, or through the grassroots driven movement for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).

We call on all people of conscience and the international community at large to respond to these plans by intensifying campaigns for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions.
