As Israeli bombs dropped on Gaza, @amazon and @google signed a $1B contract to provide cloud services for the Israeli government.

Alongside employees, 41 organizations are launching a campaign to demand Amazon and Google stop powering apartheid.

Join us:
Through Project Nimbus, Amazon and Google are strengthening Israel’s military occupation and apartheid rule over Palestinians. The Israeli government uses cloud services to surveil Palestinians, expand illegal settlements, and inflict violence on Palestinians in Gaza.
As employees wrote in their op-ed, co-signed by 800 and counting, "We cannot look the other way as the products we build are used to deny Palestinians their basic rights... We envision a future where technology brings people together and makes life better for everyone."
Support these brave Amazon and Google workers, and defend Palestinian freedom and safety, by joining our #NoTechForApartheid campaign.

Go to to email the companies’ executives telling them to cut their contracts with the Israeli government.

An innocent purchase from Duty Free Americas supports Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing.

We MUST boycott Duty Free Americas until they stop funding the ongoing Nakba!…
As Donna Nevel, of JVP South Florida writes: "Duty Free Americas generates profits from shops in airports and border crossings across the U.S...profits which the Falics use to fund racist Israeli settlement projects, such as the forced expulsions happening in Silwan."
The Falics are not the only private U.S. donors evading the law and supporting discrimination and violence against Palestinians. Each year, millions of donor dollars are funneled tax-free through U.S.-based “charities” to fund settlement expansion.

Canary Mission bankrolls adults to slander and harass pro-Palestine students.

Despite its attempts to remain a threatening and shadowy entity, its funders are being revealed one by one – and they’re coming from within the mainstream Jewish establishment.…
The tactics used by Canary Mission reek of desperation. And the harm and material impact it inflicts on student’s lives is unacceptable. CM has been used by the FBI and Israeli border agents and been a source of psychological warfare against Palestinian students and organizers.
Becca Lewis, of @jvpgwu commenting on when two men in bird costumes came to terrorize students at George Washington University ahead of a BDS vote: "We knew at that point that they were really watching us. These were adults who were being paid to terrorize students on campus.”

BREAKING: Nearly 500 @Amazon and @Google workers just united to demand BOTH companies stop providing cloud services to the Israeli government and powering Israeli apartheid!

Workers keep their companies running, so this historic demand has serious weight.…
In May, while the Israeli military was bombing Gaza for 11 days straight, Amazon and Google signed a $1 billion contract with the Israeli government, launching Project Nimbus.
But workers don’t want to build tech that will enable the Israeli government to surveil Palestinians, expand illegal settlements, and inflict violence in Gaza. They want their employers to cut their contracts with an apartheid government that violates Palestinian human rights.

Brava Sally Rooney!

Modan is one of Israel's largest publishing companies and collaborates with the Israeli Ministry of Defense. Cultural production is not separate from the political systems of apartheid and it is therefore a worthy target of boycott.…
This is not a fight about Hebrew as Rooney said herself she'd be willing to be published in Hebrew by a BDS compliant publishing house.

This is about throwing sand in the wheels of Israel's apartheid system which normalizes its abuse of Palestinians through cultural works.
We applaud Salley Rooney's decision and hope to see more public figures in the arts do the same!

No one should be subject to surveillance technology developed by a military occupation state — neither Palestinians nor Britney Spears.

This is another instance of Palestinians being used as test subjects for oppressive technology that Israeli firms then export around the world.
According to a former employee of Black Box Security, an Israeli firm staffed by former elite members of the Israeli military, Britney’s dad bugged her room and her personal electronics and used the information he recorded to control her and suppress the movement to free her.
The Black Box Security employee said that Britney “really reminded [him] of somebody that was in prison,” and that Black Box Security “was put in a position to be the prison guards, essentially.”

Nidal al-Rajabi is a native of Silwan. The crown jewel of his home is his front garden which has been host to numerous family celebrations and gatherings. He has been given 21 days by the Israeli court to destroy his own home that he so carefully designed.

Source: @MiddleEastEye
He has remained defiant, refusing to evict himself from his home despite threats from the government. Self demolition as a practice is akin to psychological torture. As al-Rajabi says, "I refuse to kill my dream and my future with my own hands, let them do that themselves."
In the wake of the court decision in Sheikh Jarrah today, which relegates Palestinians to protected tenant status in houses they've been in for 50+ years, we must remember that there is no "compromise" in these displacement cases. It is ethnic cleansing.
