Divest for Palestine - Day of Action - 15/16 June


15/06/2024 - 16/06/2024    
All Day

Israel’s genocidal assault on Palestinians in Gaza has killed tens of thousands of Palestinians, and displaced over 85% of the entire population, many multiple times. Due to Israel’s blockade, and its targeting of life-sustaining infrastructure, Palestinians in Gaza are facing imminent famine.

Israel can only carry out its devastating attacks on Palestinians across their homeland because of the support of corporations and financial institutions around the world. Palestinians have called on people around the world to launch divestment campaigns as an effective way of showing solidarity with their struggle for freedom.

Take action for Palestine this weekend to demand that public bodies such as universities, pension funds and banks like Barclays divest from companies enabling Israel’s genocidal violence.
