The Latest In Solidarity

Feb - March 2012

In an open letter dated October 21-2011, Palestinian students wrote “we hope you put BDS at the forefront of your campaigns and join together for Israeli Apartheid Week, the pinnacle of action across universities worldwide”. In response, organizers across the globe are gearing up for the 8th annual Israeli Apartheid Week in support of Palestinian Civil Society's call for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS).

November 4, 2011 (Vienna) - Vigil of Women in Black held a vigil yesterday for two hours, dedicated to the Protest against the Wall and in support of the recognition of the State of Palestine. There was enormous interest from passers-by and the reaction of many people, actually many tourists, on the street was positive towards solidarity with Palestine, evidence that things are changing regarding public opinion!

To the Mexican students,

To the Mexican people,

The Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign "Stop the Wall" and the Independent Palestinian Youth Movement "Harak Shebabi" expresse its solidarity with the Mexican students for the killing of Carlos Sinhue Cuevas, Mexican student and activist.

The Apartheid Wall has been deemed illegal by the International Court of Justice, yet the international community has done nothing to halt its encroachment on Palestinian land. Palestinian workers and farmers have been the most effected by the ongoing construction of the wall, thus we reach out to trade unions, invoking the best practices of trade union solidarity and internationalism under the tried and true union slogan of ‘an injury to one is an injury to all!’.

Herak Shababi Mustakel, the Independent Palestinian Youth movement, calls for the expulsion of Tony Blair from Palestine and considers him an unwanted person.

This year the season for the olive harvesting in Palestine began in the mid of October.

Jenin, in the north of Palestine, was one of the frist districts where they began harvesting the olives.

The kick-off of the olive harvesting in Jenin was done by a large group of Palestinian students and a group of Norwegian volunteers.

The call to divest from Elbit Systems Ltd. has become a key element of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement aimed at ending Israeli occupation, colonialism and apartheid against the Palestinian people.

Tens of thousands of youth have taken to the streets to demand equality in affordable, public education. Our Palestinian youth express their solidarity with the demonstrators,

The “Welcome to Palestine” initiative took place July 8-16, 2011. In response to an invitation put forth by Stop the Wall along with 40 other Palestinian civil society organizations, popular resistance committees, and political factions, hundreds of international visitors reserved flights to Israel's Ben Gurion airport for July 8th, 2011.

Thousands of Egyptians gathered Friday night in front of the Israeli embassy, continuing a sit-in that has was sparked when Occupation forces killed five Egyptian soldiers near the border last week.

Palestinian political forces and civil society have joined in a letter to the newly appointed Brazilian minister of defence Celso Amorim congratulating him for his appointment and expressing their hope that under his mandate Brazil's defense policies would lead to a new area of respect for human and Palestinian rights. This clearly means ending Brazil's military relations with Israel and cutting contracts with Israeli arms companies. Brazil today is the world's 4th largest importer of Israeli arms and keeps many joint ventures.

Motorola through its fully owned subsidiary Motorola Israel provides the Israeli state and its military with equipment employed in war crimes and contributes to the construction and maintenance of the Wall, the settlements and the checkpoints. The practices of Motorola clearly violate international law, including the IV Geneva Convention and the UN Covenant of Civil and Political Rights.

Stop the Wall has submitted a contribution to the EU consultation on its research policy in which it has denounced the funding of Israeli companies – and in particular Israeli companies involved in the construction of the Apartheid Wall – through European Union research programs.

The second large scale Israeli public transport infrastructure project is now feeling the heat of BDS campaigners. The Israeli light rail project in Jerusalem has been since years targeted by BDS activists that support Palestinian calls for boycotts and divestments from companies that participate in this project, which links Israeli settlements to West Jerusalem and strengthens the Israeli grip on the occupied eastern part of the city.
