The Palestinian-led global anti-apartheid struggle
Learn more

The global, Palestinian-led struggle to dismantle Israeli apartheid and settler-colonialism mobilizes grassroot pressure and lobbies decision makers to end this oppressive system. This includes pressure to activate UN mechanisms to investigate Israeli apartheid as a first and necessary step towards dismantling it, so that the Indigenous Palestinian people can enjoy freedom, justice and equality.

Hundreds of MPs and 10 ex-Presidents from the Global SouthIsraeli as well as international human rights organizations, such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, all agree with what Palestinian experts and human rights organizations have been saying for decades: Israel is perpetrating the crime against humanity of apartheid against the Palestinian people.

Apartheid is a crime against humanity that requires States and inter-state organizations, especially the UN, to fulfil their legal obligations to dismantle it.

Since 2020, Palestinian civil society has demanded

  1. Support efforts at the UN to reconstitute the UN Special Committee against Apartheid and the UN Centre against Apartheid to investigate Israeli apartheid.
  2. Investigate and prosecuting individuals and corporate actors responsible for war crimes/crimes against humanity in the context of Israel’s regime of illegal occupation and apartheid.
  3. Ban arms trade and military-security cooperation with Israel. 
  4. Suspend trade and cooperation agreements with Israel.
  5. Prohibit trade with the illegal Israeli settlements and terminating corporate business with Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise.
