An international campaign for the 12th August –
the global Day of Action against the Israeli Aggression on Palestine and Lebanon
– is gathering momentum.

In over a dozen countries, people are preparing to fill the
streets to condemn the Zionist crimes in Lebanon and Palestine. They will be out
to pressure their governments to take concrete steps against the war crimes of
the Israeli Occupation. Organizers of the various events are accusing the
international community for supporting – either actively or tacitly – the
destruction of Lebanon and Palestine and are calling upon governments to stop
arms trade with the apartheid Israeli regime.

The crimes of the Israeli war machine based, on its racist
quest for a Palestine without Palestinians and a Middle East under its control,
have not moved the international community. On the contrary, they fit smoothly
within the US project for the “New Middle East”. It is the people of the world
and not their governments that are standing up in solidarity.

The call for a global day of action was first issued by the
US ANSWER coalition. The international civil society delegation on a solidarity
mission to Beirut as well as members of the International Council of the WSF
have taken up this call for mobilization.
