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 … Continue reading

Action Item: #ReclaimYourSpace – Stand against hate & support Palestinian freedom

Around the world the space for standing up for Palestinian freedom and rights is being shut down by those that oppose our shared values. They are using false claims of antisemitism to deny the Palestinian reality of living under Israel’s colonial system of Apartheid, occupation, oppression and dispossession. We are now reaching a critical point. Attacks are moving from smear campaigns that fuel fear and hate to political and legal initiatives that are restricting freedom of speech and the right to hold those committing injustice accountable. This is happening in the US, Germany, France, UK and elsewhere in Europe – as … Continue reading

Take Action: Tell AXA to Divest from Israeli Apartheid!

Earlier today, SumOfUs published the report “AXA: Financing War Crimes” which shows that the French insurance giant AXA invests over $91 million in Israel’s largest private security and military company, Elbit Systems, and Israel’s five main banks, which operate in and serve Israel’s illegal settlements. Elbit Systems, Bank Hapoalim, Bank Leumi, Mizrahi Tefahot, First International Bank of Israel and Israel Discount Bank all support Israel’s illegal settlements and associated infrastructure, in addition to the unlawful use of armed force against Palestinians. This makes AXA complicit in serious violations of international law. It also violates AXA’s own responsible investment policies. Send … Continue reading
