A personal letter for you!

As you may well know the situation in Israel/Palestine is deteriorating daily, and there is growing political hostility against anyone who challenges the government’s policies and the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories.

New laws, such as the NGO Transparency Law, and especially the demonization and chilling effects surrounding themdirectly affect the CWP bystrictly limiting our ability to raise funds, thus harming ourability to operate. Other legislative and law enforcement measures create a hostile environment in which we are constantly forced to defend our legitimacy and give voice to human rights and their defenders. State repression focuses especially on Palestinian women/human right defenders who are subject to arbitrary arrests, and whose family members are often detained as collective punishment. Right- wing extremist groups – backed by the Israeli government – initiate smear campaigns, insinuating that human rights groups, such as CWP, are “foreign” and “traitors”.

This year, 2017, marks 50 years of the Israeli occupation. Time is running out for sustainable change towards a just solution – so let’s join forces. CWP needs continuing support, which is crucial for the continuation of our mutual work.
