"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 802, June 24, 2016: Right to Boycott part 2

The international BDS movement aims to pressure Israel, as South African apartheid was pressured, to comply with international law. It has attracted the support of mainstream unions, churches and political parties across the world and compelled large corporations, including Veolia and Orange, to end their involvement in Israel’s human rights violations.

By banning our colleague Omar Barghouti from travelling and threatening him with physical violence, Israel is showing the lengths it will go to in order to stop the spread of the non-violent BDS movement for Palestinian freedom, justice and equality.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 801, June 17 2016: RIGHT TO BOYCOT PART 1

Israel has officially refused to renew the travel document of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement co-founder Omar Barghouti in a move that amounts to a travel ban and is an escalation of its attacks on Palestinian human rights defenders who nonviolently advocate for Palestinian rights under international law.

The measures being taken against Omar are deeply political. A Human Rights Watch spokesperson has condemned the travel ban against Omar.

Justin must say NO!!

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 800, June 10, 2016: Number of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons soars

Israel has sunk to new lows this year: arresting and imprisoning its youngest female detainee, 12-year-old Dima al-Wawi, and sentencing her to nearly five months in prison.

Dima was arrested in February after she allegedly approached the settlement of Karmei Tzur in the southern occupied West Bank with a knife.

All of Israel’s settlements are illegal under international law. She has said her intention was to stab a security guard, but the incident resulted in no injuries.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 799, June 3, 2016: The Al- Aqsa Mosque in East al-Quds

The Al- Aqsa Mosque in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and its institutions are the scene of frequent raids by Israeli extremists. UNESCO chief Irina Bokova's call for “respect and dialogue” came after Israel reacted with outrage to the UN body's adoption of a resolution on “Occupied Palestine” on Thursday. The resolution refers to Israel several times as the “occupying power,” while referring to the holy site by only its Arab name and criticizes Tel Aviv for “excavations and works” in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
