Israel: You Cannot Silence Global Voices for Justice!

BlackList.jpg

Sign our open letter to Israel:


Over the past year, you have denied entry to numerous peaceful advocates for Palestinian human rights. These have included leaders of CODEPINK, Jewish Voice for Peace, the Center for Constitutional Rights and many other organizations and individuals. Since the founding of Israel, Palestinian refugees have been the denied the right to return to their homes and lands. Every day, Palestinian Americans and people of Muslim faith are denied entry on the basis of their ethnicity/religion.

On Sunday, January 7, 2018, Israel published a list of 20 international organizations, including CODEPINK, whose activists will be barred from entering the country because of their support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement in Palestine. The six banned U.S. groups are:

  • American Friends Service Committee
  • American Muslims for Palestine
  • CODEPINK
  • Jewish Voice for Peace
  • National Students for Justice in Palestine
  • US Campaign for Palestinian Rights

This is an outrageous attempt to silence global voices who work to stop the oppression and violations of international law against the people of Palestine. It is unacceptable for the US government to use US taxpayer funds to support Israel’s violence towards Palestinians. We call for an end to all racist and repressive bans, from Israel’s BDS ban to Trump’s Muslim ban.

Freedom, justice and equality for all!

Sincerely,

    It is outrageous that Israel is banning people, like our own Ariel Gold, who advocate for Palestinian rights. Join our open letter to say NO to all bans and call for an end to the occupation. #BDS @CODEPINK https://www.codepink.org/blacklisted?recruiter_id=763231

    Israel is a war criminal government and need to be in trial for its crimes committed against humanity. Whether state of Israel constituted as an apartheid regime springs from the same body of international human rights law and principles that reject anti-Semitism: that is, the prohibition of racial discrimination. No state is immune from the norms and rules enshrined in the International norms and rules enshrined in the international Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination , which must be applied impartially. And Israel is not above the law. Therefore, the prohibition of apartheid which as a crime against humanity, cannot admit no exception, flows from the Convention.
