Supporters of Israeli apartheid are trying to ban the word Palestine from the airwaves. Recently, Canadian radio show host Duncan McCue had to apologize on-air for having used the word “Palestine” during an interview he conducted with Joe Sacco, a cartoonist whose work deals with colonialism, including the colonization of Palestine. Read more about this controversy here.
Help us send a loud and clear message to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to STOP CENSORING PALESTINE!
The Coronavirus has entered Gaza. It's a catastrophe underway. Tell Congress, the World Health Organization, and the U.N. to speak out! This crisis has been building since Israel's life-threatening blockade began 13 years ago. By supporting this siege, the U.S. is complicit in any Gaza COVID-19 crisis that might occur. Gaza is not only one of the most densely populated place on earth and the world's largest open-air prison, but 97% of the water there is unfit for human consumption, electricity is rationed, and there was already an extremely severe shortage of resources, medical supplies and personnel.
Palestinian feminist, lawmaker, and political prisoners’ advocate Khalida Jarrar is one of 5,500 Palestinian political prisoners being held under Israel’s abusive administrative detention. It is shameful that our government turns a blind eye to Israel’s blatant targeting of activists and continues to fund its apartheid. Tell Congress to pressure the Israeli government to release Khalida Jarrar and take a stand for all Palestinian political prisoners in administrative detention.
Each year around 700 Palestinian children are arrested, abused, and detained in Israel’s military court system, a system with a conviction rate of 99.74%. According to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Association, 98% of Palestinian children arrested and detained by Israel are subjected to physiological and/or physical torture and interrogations carried out without legal representation or parents present — this is a violation of international humanitarian law, and U.S. aid to Israel is being used to fund it. The Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act, H.R. 2407 prohibits U.S. assistance to Israel to be allocated to the detainment and mistreatment of children. Join us in telling Congress to support human rights for Palestinian children.
