Israel’s decades-old regime of apartheid and theft of Palestinian land is continuing unabated. Reports that Israel is “suspending” formal annexation are a smokescreen for continued colonisation and piecemeal ethnic cleansing of Indigenous Palestinians.
Around the world, advocates for justice are pushing back.The Global South response, initiated by South African civil society, brings together notable figures, intellectuals, policy makers, civil society leaders and experts from Africa, Latin America and Asia, in a joint effort to promote lawful sanctions on Israel to end its decades-old oppression of the Palestinian people.
Key endorsers include seven former Latin American presidents, including Dilma Rousseff, Lula da Silva, Jose Mujica; two former South African presidents – Thabo Mbeki and Kgalema Motlanthe; and many other political leaders and public figures.
The call is based on the “long history of struggle for self-determination and national sovereignty, and against colonialism, apartheid and the racist ideologies that were used to justify it”.
