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

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Thursday July 11, 2019 22:34author by ipsc - Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign

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 well as inside the Israeli state itself.

It is time for you to take a stand and #ReclaimYourSpace. Sign the Change.org petition and pledge to:

• Stand up for universal rights and against all forms of hat

• Support Palestinian freedom and rights

• Uphold the democratic right to criticize and hold accountable those committing injustice

• Call on all governments to oppose those who infringe on these rights and values

Our collective voice is powerful and should be heard. That is why every signature matters.

Show the world we won’t be silenced. Uphold our freedom of speech and our right to hold those committing injustice accountable.

Join us in building a future based on these universal values and one that stamps out all forms of hate and discrimination.
