Free Jerusalem, End the Occupation
This petition had 31 supporters
For decades, Palestinians in Jerusalem have endured Israeli occupation and apartheid. These illegal forms of rule have persisted unabated and thereby legitimize the Israeli government’s hostility to Palestinian rights, sovereignty and self-determination.
We, the undersigned, therefore, demand urgent action to end the illegal, colonial Israeli occupation of Jerusalem, along with the policies and practices that sustain it. We call on the international community to realize its obligations to protect the rights and sovereignty of the Palestinian people and adopt practical measures to end the Israeli government’s illegal occupation of Jerusalem. 1,2
Because the only way to solve the century-old colonial conflict in Palestine is to end Israeli occupation, there will be no semblance of peace without a free Jerusalem.
