If you live in the U.S., tell the Senate to hold Israel accountable!
If you live overseas, share our petition to the ICJ on social media:
Over 30,000 people have signed our petition to charge Israel with genocide at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). South Africa responded by bringing the initial charge against Israel — so we took action to make sure other countries heard your demands.
This week we took historic action for Palestine as we delivered our petition to consulates and embassies in every major city in the United States demanding the world hold Israel accountable for genocide! We were able to speak directly with consular generals and senior staff at embassies to get your message across. And the day after we visited, Jordan joined South Africa in its case against Israel! Our advocacy is working.
We kicked off the deliveries on Wednesday in Chicago with deliveries to the consulates of Pakistan and Bosnia!
In Washington DC, we delivered the petition to 16 embassies!
In New York City, we delivered the petition to 30 consulates and embassies!
In Los Angeles, we visited 9 consulates!
In Miami, we visited 9 consulates!
We also visited consulates in Orlando, Houston, Boston, and more!
South Africa’s oral argument in the ICJ will take place on Thursday, January 11 from 10am-12pm (Central European Standard Time), and Israel’s oral argument will take place on Friday January 12 from 10am-12pm (Central European Standard Time). The hearings will be streaming live on the ICJ’s websiteand on the UN Web TV.
