Commemorating 74 years of ongoing Nakba

Last May, activists around the world stood with us. Yet, Western governments offered rhetorical condemnation at best, and at worst ongoing complicity.
 Apartheid Israel’s colonial violence and naked aggression have never stopped. But neither has Palestinian resilience and sumud (steadfastness).
 In Sheikh Jarrah, Silwan, Al-Naqab and Masafer Yatta and across historic Palestine, Palestinians stand united against ongoing ethnic cleansing.
 During April, apartheid Israel murdered at least 23 Palestinians, including 3 women and 2 children; embarked on a campaign of mass arrest; and once again bombed the Palestinian population of besieged Gaza.
Our Nakba did not end in 1948.

Palestinians watch with empathy the suffering of Ukrainians. Yet, the West’s blanket boycotts and sanctions against Russia while continuing its complicity in Israel’s apartheid against Palestinians is racist, enraging and hypocritical.
 As we mark the 74th anniversary of the Nakba we underline the growing global consensus that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid against all Palestinians. We reiterate our call for governments to impose lawful, proportional and targeted sanctions on apartheid Israel, for the UN to launch an investigation into Israeli apartheid, and for the escalation of all BDS campaigns globally in order to dismantle Israeli apartheid and attain freedom, justice and equality for Palestinians.
Take these five actions now to #EndIsraeliApartheid:
 1. Demand #UNinvestigateApartheid and a #MilitaryEmbargo on Israel now!
2. Declare your institutions #ApartheidFreeZones.
3. Boycott brands supporting Israeli apartheid.
4. Cancel academic, cultural, and sporting events in Israel.
4. Join a #BDS campaign.
