אין דמוקרטיה עם כיבוש, אין מאבק בלי סולידריות

הערב ב-19:30 נעמוד כולנו לצד הפעילות שלנו במגרש הרוסים, שם יובאו לדיון בהערכת מעצר העצורים מההפגנה אתמול בשייח' ג'ראח, נגד גירוש משפחת סאלם.
אתמול, בהפגנה האחרונה לפני הדיון של משפחת סאלם במאבק נגד גירושה (9/3) היינו מאות בשייח ג'ראח שבאו להפגין בסולידריות עם המשפחה.
המשטרה פיזרה אותנו באלימות קשה, עם אלות, בואש, וסוסים.
הם עצרו 6 פעילים, והרבה נפצעו מאלימות משטרה ומתנחלים. 4 קיבלו טיפול רפואי.
הערב המשטרה תנסה להאריך מעצר לשניים מהעצורים.
נעמוד לצדם ונפגין סולידריות, ונפגש בשעה 19:30 מול בית משפט השלום.

לכן הערב, לראשונה מזה חודשיים לא נפגין כגוש 'דמוקרטיה לכולןם' מול בית הנשיא, אלא במגרש הרוסים.
אין דמוקרטיה עם כיבוש. אין מאבק בלי סולידריות!

BREAKING: Meta's human rights due diligence report is out today, confirming the company's censorship has violated Palestinian human rights.

Here is thread on the report's main conclusions:
The two key takeaways—which confirm what Palestinian users and civil society—have been documenting and experiencing for years:

1) Meta's censorship of Palestinian content during #SaveSheikhJarrah and Israel's assault on Gaza in May 2021 had adversely violated people's rights.
2) The report confirms that Meta's content moderation policies and practice are biased against Palestinians and Arabic speaking users.

For example, Meta had greater over-enforcement of Arabic content compared to Hebrew, which was largely unmoderated.

Sheikh Jarrah needs your solidarity NOW just as much as May 2021 when millions of us took to our streets and keyboards to support Palestinians defending their homes against Israeli ethnic cleansing.

Listen to Muna El-Kurd’s call to amplify their struggle #SaveSheikhJarrah
As we speak, hundreds of settlers are descending on Sheikh Jarrah for the 6th night in a row in a violent campaign to remove the Salem family from their home, with the assistance of Israeli forces. This is what we were resisting last May — exactly what we were trying to prevent.
The Israeli government and settlers are counting on us to look away, to burn out, to let our attention and dedication to solidarity falter. They saw — and were threatened by — the impact of our posts and protests, and they are hoping that we won’t bring that energy now.

Palestinians in Al-Naqab, Jerusalem, the Jordan Valley, the South Hebron Hills are protesting right now to stop the Israeli gov't's campaign of ethnic cleansing.

It's on us to call on our members of Congress to hold the Israeli gov't accountable & demand #EndEthnicCleansing
The case is clear.

The Israeli government’s increased brutality against Palestinians is exactly how it maintains its apartheid regime & continues ethnic cleansing.

@UN is responsible to investigate–& dismantle–Israeli apartheid.

The complicity of our governments with Israeli apartheid & settler colonial oppression perpetuates the #Nakba & emboldens Israel to continue to be a threat to the entire framework of International Law.

This is a crisis moment. We have been watching the ongoing Nakba unfold in Sheikh Jarrah, for months, for years, for decades and now as ever, we need to be listening and be led by Palestinian voices and uplift their resistance.

Israel’s destruction of the Salahiya family home is not an isolated incident.

It is part of Israel’s ongoing effort to steal Palestinian homes and land in order to replace Palestinians with Israeli settlers whose presence on Palestinian land is illegal.
It is the same goal that Israel was founded on when it violently expelled hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in 1948 in what is called the Nakba.

The Nakba never ended. Today it looks like what is happening to the Salahiyas.
But the Salahiyas are far from the only family who Israel is targeting.

Palestinians experience the Nakba every day through Israel’s relentless destruction of Palestinian homes, arrests, beatings, and killings.

The decision by the Jerusalem municipality to force the Salahiya family from their home is part of the Israeli government’s plan to evict Palestinians from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem and build a Jewish-only neighborhood instead.
This is part of a larger plan to build a ring of Jewish-only neighborhoods around the Old City, forcing more and more Palestinians from their homes in Jerusalem.
At least 280 Palestinian households in Jerusalem, consisting of 970 people, including 424 children, are at risk of forced displacement by the Israeli government, according to the UN.

In May 2021, Members of Congress spoke out against the forced displacement of Palestinian families in #SheikhJarrah.

8 months have passed & Israel's ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people continues - @USProgressives, stick to your word & keep up this pressure.
.@USProgressives you can't call yourself progressive if you're silent when Palestinian people are being ethnically cleansed by the Israeli military that the U.S. funds.

What do you support: justice for the Palestinian people or the Israeli apartheid regime?

Ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in Sheikh Jarrah, the Naqab, & Massafer Yatta is escalating.

.@USProgressives your inaction is complicity.

In cold heavy rain & in a pandemic, ~50 Israeli officers stormed the Salahiyas' house, beat people, arrested 6, & destroyed the home the family had fought so hard to protect.

Why now? Israel waited until attention turned away.

Raise your voices loud for #SaveSheikhJarrah SHEIKH JARRAH ALERT Israel destroys Salahiya family home.  F
Pay attention to eyewitness reports, like that of Yasmeen Salhiyeh, 19, in this article. Right now, there's no information on the whereabouts of the 6 Salahiya family members arrested.

Make noise now to call for their safety and release! #SaveSheikhJarrah…
Collective global outrage can protect Palestinians from ethnic cleansing in Sheikh Jarrah & all of Palestine. We must demand accountability.

@SecBlinken & @StateDept, our tax dollars are funding these brutal expulsions of Palestinian families. Are you going to say anything?

BREAKING: Israeli Border Police Arrest Salahiya Family & Expel Them from Their Home #SaveSheikhJarrah
The Salahiya family has been fighting to protect their home against Israel’s increased efforts to kick #Palestinians out of East Jerusalem in order to give their homes and land to Israeli settlers.

We are witnessing ethnic cleansing in action.
Mahmoud Salahiya, who Israel has now arrested for protecting his home, had this to say yesterday:

“We will not flee again. We have nowhere else to go. You expelled us once already in 1948. We either die in our home or we live. We are not leaving,”

After trying—and failing—to make living in the Palestinian town of Masafer Yatta so unbearable that Palestinian residents would leave on their own, Israel is demolishing their homes.
Israel frequently targets the town by forcing residents to evacuate during military trainings, flying low helicopters, enabling settler attacks, and refusing residents access to water and electricity.
Demolishing Palestinian homes is a war crime that Israel plans to continue not only in Masafer Yatta but Sheikh Jarrah, Al-Tur, and more if they are not stopped.

Palestinian flags at rallies against anti-Black racism represent shared material conditions, mutual inspiration, and common goals of the movements for Palestinian and Black liberation. Both are fighting the kind of state-condoned violence that Rittenhouse perpetrated.

And both movements have found that we can’t expect the legal systems of states built on racial/ethnic supremacy to deliver liberatory verdicts. As per @dereckapurnell's thread, we need to build power outside these systems, working toward their abolition.
@m7mdkurd has also pointed to the impossibility of Israeli courts ruling in favor of Palestinians resisting home theft. He has tweeted, “How can we win against a colonial court, a colonizer judge, and a colonizer jury? And laws that were *invented* to ethnically cleanse us."
