Nothing terrifies the colony more than evidence of the existence of the indigenous people it's attempting to erase.

🪡 THREAD👇
So terrifying are the indigenous flags to the most heavily armed and technologically advanced colony in the Middle East, that Israel's Minister of National Security calls them "terrorism" and "incitement to terrorism".
Because for Israel, anything Palestinian- from pieces of cloth on a stick to human rights organizations- is terrorism.

📢 It's been 45 years since the UN established #PalestineDay - and Israeli authorities provide daily reminders of why we still need it. For how much longer will the world tolerate Israel's cruel #apartheid system?

❗️🇮🇱's military probe admits it is "highly probable" that an Israeli soldier shot to death journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, but won't take action against them. 🇨🇦 must demand an independent investigation to hold these murderers accountable! @melaniejoly @CanEmbIsrael @CanadaRepPA Haaretz article: title: Israeli Military Admits 'Highly Prob
@melaniejoly @CanEmbIsrael @CanadaRepPA Unfortunately, Israel's probe spreads misinformation by suggesting that Shireen may have been shot by 'accident', despite multiple independent probes which found no evidence of Palestinian militants in the area and said that the journalists were deliberately targeted by Israel.
@melaniejoly @CanEmbIsrael @CanadaRepPA From the start, multiple eyewitnesses, including several journalists, have insisted that Israeli forces were responsible for the attack, and that Abu Akleh had been deliberately targeted by Israel. These claims have been corroborated by multiple independent analyses.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” - Nelson Mandela

Apartheid ended in South Africa, & together we can end Israeli apartheid against Palestinians. On @NelsonMandela International Day we honour a life dedicated to the fight against racism & oppression.

#MandelaDay
🧵
Mandela recognised the similarities between apartheid South Africa & Israel's regime of oppression against Palestinians. He never forgot the pivotal role Israel played in supporting the apartheid regime in South Africa & undermining the global boycott against it.

#MandelaDay
As a leader of the South African liberation movement that used boycotts & sanctions to undermine the apartheid regime, Mandela helped to establish many of the principles that today guide & inspire the Palestinian-led, global #BDS movement for Palestinian rights.

🚨 BREAKING: Apartheid and de facto annexation in practice

1. Israel changes its policy of entry and residence of foreigners into the West Bank to further complicates entry restrictions. Even among foreign nationality holders, Israel racially discriminates against Palestinians🧵
2. The new 97- page ordinance entitled: "Procedure for Entry and Residence for Foreigners in Judea and Samaria Area" replaces the current 4-page Ordinance No. 202, entitled: "Policy of Entry of Foreigners into the West Bank Territories", and will become effective on 22 May 2022.
3. The new, more expansive entry rules represent a clear attempt to restrict, track and trace the travel of foreign nationals to the occupied Palestinian territories, control Palestinian population growth & keep data on the land claims of Palestinians holding foreign nationality.

THREAD 🧵 https://tbinternet.ohchr.or...
1. Although the Committee didn't explicitly mention Aparthied, everything in its report did. For example, it reiterated the 2020 recommendations of the Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination. I will provide some highlights here but make sure to read the 11-page doc. https://documents-dds-ny.un...
2. The Committee reaffirmed the applicability of the ICCPR on the OPT including in situations of occupation. It further called on Israel to interpret the ICCPR in "good faith" and to review its legal position of non-applicability. Image

Today marks International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, observing the 1960 killing of dozens in South Africa who protested against apartheid laws.

However, apartheid isn't a relic of the past, it's a reality for millions of Palestinians. #EndIsraeliApartheid
Palestinians facing the brutality of Israel’s cruel system of discrimination have been calling on the international community to recognize and take action against Israel’s apartheid.

Palestinians need us to take action against decades of injustice. amnesty.org/en/petition/de…
The dispossession and displacement of Palestinians from their homes is a crucial pillar of Israel’s apartheid system. Over 6 million Palestinians remain as refugees and at least 150,000 in Israel & the OPT are at risk of losing their homes.

Here are some of their stories ⬇

With today’s landmark @amnesty report, Israeli apartheid is now a matter of wall-to-wall consensus. As more & more recognize reality for what it is, our challenge is to take action to change it & #EndIsraeliApartheid 1/10
Amnesty thoroughly exposes a “system which operates w varying levels of intensity & repression based on Palestinians’ status in the separate enclaves where [they] live.. but ultimately seeks to establish & maintain Jewish hegemony wherever Israel exercises effective control” 2/10
Amnesty’s findings echo those of leading Palestinian & Israeli rights orgs, @hrw & others: that Israeli govt committing the crime of apartheid against millions of Palestinians & that int’l community should end complicity & hold perpetrators to account 3/10

Guidelines and safety protocols for all those going to the #BlockTheBoat action in so called Vancouver!

#SaveSheikhJarrah #SaveSilwan #FreePalestine #EndIsraeliApartheid

(alt text will be added to the replies here and added to the original tweet by @palyouthmvmt)
Image ID:

The goal of this action is to ensure Zim knows their profiteering from Israeli settler colonialism is not welcome here, not to be arrested.

Block the Boat Guidelines
1. Do not talk to the police. There are police liaisons whose role is to do this. If police talk to you, direct them to the police liaison.

2. If you have a concern or need help during the action, talk to an organizer. Organizers are wearing brightly coloured armbands.
