Justice for Palestine: tear down the Apartheid Wall!
09 Jul 2004 03:36 GMT
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, the Netherlands, will give its advisory opinion on the Apartheid Wall in Palestine on July 9th. In light of the upcoming opinion from the ICJ, the Israeli government is trying to manipulate the truth and disguise the colonial foundation of its racist apartheid policy. It has depicted a decision by its own High Court to move 30km of the Apartheid Wall as a Palestinian ���victory���, but Palestinians see how, on the contrary, this decision validates Israel���s claim that the Wall is solely a security measure and how it states that the Wall can be built on Palestinian land.
The Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign calls on all people to remain critical of the ICJ opinion, whatever the outcome. Help bring the Palestinian grassroots struggle against the Apartheid Wall to the forefront of global action and amplify the claims of those resisting on the ground:
Tear Down the Apartheid Wall!
Stop the Occupation!
Sanctions and Boycott on Apartheid Israel!
Four months of court deliberations have prompted international political immobility, but Palestinian resistance is growing. Whole villages have risen up to stop the Apartheid Wall and the devastating repression of the Israeli Occupation. It is up to us to resist this propaganda and support the Palestinian struggle against the Occupation and Bantustanisation of Palestine, land annexation, destruction and expulsion of Palestinian communities. The world has defeated apartheid in South Africa ��� it cannot tolerate it in Palestine. Related links:
Call to action on 9/10 July and inform the Campaign about your initiatives.
