On 13 September 2022, the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly
will begin in New York, with representatives of governments from around the world.
Advocates for Palestinian rights are mobilizing to ensure the UN hears the global call for a UN-led investigation of Israeli apartheid.
Decades of resistance on the ground and international solidarity, coupled with measures taken by the UN, helped confine apartheid in South Africa to the dustbin of history. The UN imposed a military embargo and called on all states to end military, economic, cultural and diplomatic relations with apartheid South Africa.
For decades Palestinian civil society and solidarity groups have analyzed Israel’s settler-colonial regime as including apartheid against the entire Indigenous Palestinian people. Today, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, B’Tselem, and 100’s of global institutions, experts, leaders and an increasing number of UN member states join the global consensus - Israel is guilty of the crime against humanity of apartheid. (See the reports on our website.)
Our movement's South Africa moment is nearing.
Your support can help #EndIsraeliApartheid.
