UJ: War criminals not welcome – Take two minutes to send an email to your MP
Following the successful issuing of an arrest warrant for Tzipi Livni last December for committing war crimes during Operation Cast Lead, the Conservative government made an election pledge to change the law on Universal Jurisdiction.
PSC has set up an easy to use e-tool that allows you to send a model letter to your MP, urging them to sign EDM 108 ‘Human Rights and the Law’ – calling on them to make public their opposition to any change in the law on Universal Jurisdiction. The new proposals adds a political dimension to a legal decision and introduces a source of delay when urgent action may be required to stop a suspected war criminals escape justice.
Action Alert : Demand The OECD Cancel Their Planned Tourism Conference in Jerusalem
Between the 20th and 22nd of October, the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) plans to hold its bi-annual tourism conference in Jerusalem – a city whose indigenous Palestinian residents suffer from systemic discrimination and expulsion.
Despite Israel’s persistent violations of human rights and disregard for International law, the OECD – whose member countries include the majority of the world richest countries – granted Israel membership on May 27th of this year.
Tourism plays an important role in Israel’s colonization of occupied East Jerusalem. The state and right wing settler organizations cooperate in expelling Palestinians residents from East Jerusalem neighborhoods such as Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah for the creation of colonies and biblically theme parks for tourists.
