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.

Glasgow City Council: Don’t Promote Israeli Apartheid’s Killing Machines!

Urge Glasgow City Council to end its support of weapons fair featuring companies that fuel wars and military oppression around the world, including Israeli military companies.

Glasgow City Council: Don’t Promote Israeli Apartheid’s Killing Machines!

Send a letter to Glasgow City Council to end its support of the Undersea Defence Technology Fair where Israeli arms will be promoted!

From June 26-28, Glasgow City Council will sponsor the Undersea Defence Technology Fair, a military fair featuring companies that fuel wars and military oppression around the world, including Israeli military companies.

Israeli arms companies have a regular presence in European arms fairs in an attempt to export Israel's repressive tactics and militarism. They must be stopped.

The fair  lists “Israel Defense,” a media enterprise that promotes Israel’s arms industry, as an official media partner. Israeli company DSIT Solutions, which facilitates Israel’s illegal naval siege on Gaza will also be present at the fair. Israeli arms companies regularly market their weapons as “tested in combat” or “field tested,” meaning they are tested on Palestinians bodies and then exported to promote oppression in the rest of the world.

Glasgow’s arms fair has been condemned by peace campaigners across Scotland for its promotion of arms trade and links to Trident, the UK’s program for the development, procurement and operation of nuclear weapons. BAE Systems and Babcock International, two companies involved in Trident, are also sponsoring  the fair.

Send a letter to Susan Aitken,Glasgow City Council leader, to end the council’s sponsorship of this military fair! Glasgow City Council, don’t sponsor Israeli apartheid’s human rights violations!
