Gaza: One year on
Sign our petition to demand the end of the siege on Gaza!
On the 30th July last year, Israel bombed a UNWRA school which was being used as a shelter. More than 3,300 people, many of them women and children, had piled into Jabaliya Elementary A&B Girls’ School seeking refuge after being told by the military their homes would be bombarded.
Ban Ki-moon called the attack “outrageous and unjustifiable”. Unfortunately it was not the only time the Israeli military striked a UN facility; it is estimated 44 civilians died as a result of these attacks. Overall, more than 2,000 Palestinians were killed by Israel in seven weeks, 551 of whom were children.

Emergency protest against Susiya demolition
The village of Susiya located in the South Hebron hills is facing the third attempt by the Israeli state to have it demolished. It has become an diplomatic pressure point, with John Kirby the U.S State Department spokesperson saying, “we strongly urge the Israeli authorities to refrain from carrying out any demolitions in the village” and senior EU statesmen warning Israel not to go ahead with the plan.
This is another step in Israel’s ongoing practice of forcibly removing Palestinians from their land. The residents of Susiya have already been displaced once in 1986, from the village of caves they had inhabited for more than a century. Read more in Haaretz here.
The extremist settler movement, supported by the Israeli State, have called for the village to be destroyed immediately, with the local settler leader arguing that Jews were ‘there first’. Read more in the Guardian report here.

The cultural boycott pledge for UK cultural workers launched by Artists for Palestine UK has topped 1000 signatories.
APUK has also produced The Case for a Cultural Boycott of Israel, a vital resource for activists.
Readable, succinct, well-sourced and rationally argued, its 64 pages provide answers to all the questions you’ve ever been asked, or are ever likely to be asked, about a cultural boycott of Israel. With a foreword by novelist Kamila Shamsie.
