Palestinians on US Embassy Opening in Jerusalem & 70 Years of the Ongoing NakbaUpdateMilitary Embargo

The Trump administration’s decision to open the US embassy in Jerusalem as Palestinians commemorate 70 painful years of displacement signals that it’s giving Israel freer reign than ever to try to push Palestinians out of their homeland. But a growing alliance of progressive communities around the world gives Palestinians hope that together they can, and will, end the ongoing assaults on Palestinian life, and create a better world for all.

UK Government Should Cancel Prince William’s Visit to Apartheid IsraelUpdateMilitary EmbargoSanctions and governments

Prince William’s scheduled trip to Israel this summer would contravene seven decades of British policy against official visits to Israel by the royal family. Despite many invitations, the royal family has avoided visits to avoid giving a royal stamp of approval to Israel’s decades-old violations of Palestinian human rights. As Israel’s far-right government intensifies its violations of international law, this is no time to change this precedent. The UK should pressure Israel to end its violations of Palestinian rights and cancel Prince William's trip.
