Gaza is calling on YOU. Hiba Al Danf

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Organizations and international institutions are warning that Gaza is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis[1] in spite of the humanitarian aid provided by the international community. Already now, Gaza is facing a water crisis, extreme pollution, electricity shortage, restricted access to health services and education as well as economic distress. All these hardships turn life into a daily struggle for survival for Gaza’s residents, both women and men. Amidst all this, women are dealing with a wide range of gender specific challenges[2]. This situation is the cumulative outcome of a decade-long siege on Gaza, in addition to the frequent military offensives on the strip every few years, and the failed attempts at reconstruction in-between these rounds.

The Gaza strip is under a high degree of effective control by Israel and is therefore under its occupation. Israel has repeatedly refused to fulfill its obligations under international law.

Therefore, we turn to the UN and EU, to hold Israel accountable and to ensure human rights for Gaza’s residents.

WOMEN BEYOND THE SIEGE

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Organizations and international institutions are warning that Gaza is on the verge of a humanitarian crisis. Already now, Gaza is facing a water crisis, extreme pollution, electricity shortage as well as economic distress. All these hardships turn life into a daily struggle for survival for Gaza’s residents, both women and men. This situation is the cumulative outcome of a decade-long siege on Gaza, in addition to the frequent military offensives on the strip every few years, and the attempts at reconstruction in-between these rounds.

Amidst all this, women in Gaza are dealing with specific difficulties and challenges. But as already the situation in Gaza is rarely brought up, the situation of women is even less present in public debates. Precisely because of that, we ought to be all ears and listen to the calls coming from Gaza, to learn and to become active.

Art sale to raise funds for legal expenses for the defense of activists in the joint Palestinian-Israeli struggle against the occupation

David Hachmi 18, Tel-Aviv- Jaffa

https://www.facebook.com/events/634324993381907/

Original works of art by renowned and emerging artists, advanced purchase can be made through the website.

Credit card purchases are tax deductiable in th U.S

The struggle against the occupation and for democracy and equality depends on the time and energy of volunteers, but it also involves high legal expenses. One of the methods of suppressing the struggle against the occupation is legal persecution: many demonstrators Palestinians as well as Israelis are arrested at demonstrations for no reason. They are accused of false charges against which they must defend themselves. Despite the willingness of a dedicated legal team to work for solidarity rates, the costs add up to a substantial amount.

25% of the sale price of each work will be paid to the artist who donated the work. All funds raised will be dedicated to covering legal expenses. 

Opening hours: Thursday 20:00-23:00; Friday 10:00-16:00; Saturday 10:00-22:00

The initiators of the intervals project were the Coalition of Women For Peace which has supported this struggle from its inception and Anarchists Against The Wall have taken part in this struggle for about 10 years and have paid a high personal, legal and financial price.

These days the intervals project is being carried on by a group of activists to support the original goals of the project.

The Supreme court hearing on the petition against the anti-boycott law

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The Supreme Court Hearing on the petition against the Israeli anti-boycott law on Sunday Feb. 16th, 2014

,On Sunday February 16th at 09:00 the Israeli Supreme Court will conduct a hearing on the petition filed by Adalah,
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel , Coalition of women for peace (CWP) and other organizations against the Israeli anti-boycott law

The Anti-Boycott law law is a clear political attempt to silence legitimate and justified criticism against the Israeli policy and the ongoing occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people as well as to prevent public discussion on the financial interests in the continuing Israeli control over Palestinian and Syrian land, resources and labor force.

 

 

The law refers to economic, cultural or academic boycott based on the specifics of its “linkage to the state of Israel, one of its institutions or an area under its control”. Individuals, bodies or corporations can prosecute anyone who knowingly publishes a public call for boycott or publicly participates in a call for boycott, without proving damages. Therefore, this law actually imposes sanctions and financial penalties on individuals who chose a non-violent political protest which includes boycott.

 

 

The public discussion in Israel consist many public stands regarding boycott and divestment these days , but only one voice is hardly heard-in the Israeli public discussion- supporting and endorsing BDS- and all due to political censorship.

Boycott is accepted worldwide as one of the tools in non-violent protests and struggles, and is also being used in social and economic justice struggles within Israel. The anti-boycott law sends a clear message of distinction between boycotting supermarket chain-stores because of the high prices as a legitimate protest, and boycott as part of the struggle to end the Israeli occupation as prohibited. The law violates the freedom of speech and political expression and received harsh criticism from
from Israeli SCO’s as well as political parties and the international community
