End Israeli Apartheid! Open Shuhada Street!

We call on UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad to use their influence and power to pressure the state of Israel to open Shuhada Street to all people.

For the past 23 years Shuhada Street, in the Occupied West Bank city of Hebron, has been almost entirely closed to Palestinians. Once a major thoroughfare and thriving marketplace, today Shuhada street is effectively a ghost town for Palestinians. While illegal Israeli settlers move freely and carry arms, Palestinian face an apartheid system of checkpoints, closed military zones, humiliation, arrests, vicious attacks from Israeli settlers and soldiers, and displacement from their homes. Palestinians who have managed to remain in their Shuhada Street houses have had their doors welded shut and must climb down from neighbors' roofs or use back doors to access their homes.

As people concerned with freedom and equality for all people, we ask UN Secretary General António Guterres and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad to use their power and influence to pressure the State of Israel to end the apartheid system of segregation in Hebron and open Shuhada Street!

    Why do we support Israel when they don’t believe in Jesus?They practice a false religion.

    All Palestinians Under brutal Israeli occupation must be granted their inherent GOD-given rights, to be treated as full-fledged and honoured human beings, and to be free and happy on their ancestral lands free of brutality by a foreign force.

    Israel is doing to the Palestinians what has been done to us Jews- don’t they remember the suffering? Every human deserves human rights. We shall not suppress the stranger in our midst, for we were strangers in the land of Egypt.
