WE’RE TAKING THE EU TO COURT – And we need your support to do it!
Earlier this year a coalition of European Palestine solidarity groups attempted to use the European Citizens’ Initiative mechanism as a means to voice out our call for action against all illegal settlements. This is a mechanism under which 1 million European citizens can compel a debate on an issue of concern. In this case we wanted to see a proper debate on the EU’s legal obligations towards non-recognition of, and non-assistance to, illegal settlements in occupied territories, including Israel’s illegal settlements in Palestine.
However, the European Commission refused to even register our Initiative! It is clear, the Commission doesn’t want the issue of Israel’s illegal settlements on the agenda and instead wants to keep providing political cover for these war crimes.
Yet we refuse to be silenced. So we are asking you to help us take the Commission to the EU Court of Justice to challenge its complicity with fundamental rights violations.
Unfortunately, however, we need to raise at least €10,000 to pay legal costs (democracy isn’t cheap it seems) and you can help by making a donation to our crowd-funding appeal here. Thank you!
