We will use this pledge to demonstrate to world leaders that a growing number of people recognize the injustice of Israel’s policies and are standing together against apartheid, and that we expect them to do the same. Sign your name by filling out the form below.
I am signing this pledge because I recognize that Israeli apartheid is real.
I will not be afraid to use the word apartheid to describe the situation facing Palestinians. “Apartheid” accurately captures the actions and policies of the Israeli government as defined under international law and as documented by organizations including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Al-Haq and B’Tselem.
I understand that criticizing Israeli policies and practices denying Palestinian human rights is not antisemitic. I will stand up for people wrongly accused of antisemitism for supporting Palestinian human rights.
I am committed to solidarity with the Palestinian people in support of universal human rights and I call on politicians and community leaders to hold Israel accountable for its actions.
I will encourage people to learn more so that we can work Together Against Apartheid.
There is growing consensus that Israel is committing the crime of apartheid because of its refusal to provide Palestinians with equal access to water, electricity, healthcare, education, housing, employment, freedom of movement and a range of rights and civil liberties enjoyed by Jewish citizens of the country.
History has shown that dismantling an apartheid system requires pressure from outside the country perpetrating it. When people from around the world hold their own governments to account for the relationships and support they provide to apartheid regimes, apartheid falls.
We can each contribute to the effort that is needed to identify and dismantle apartheid in Israel. By adding your name to this pledge, you are committing to stand up for justice for Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territory.
