Action on Palestine
Civil society is waking up to the one-sided support for Israel’s 40-year-long occupation of Palestinian society. From Melbourne to Montreal citizens are organizing against a policy which even former US President Jimmy Carter now sees as a kind of apartheid. They are rallying against a wall that is really a land grab, against military checkpoints and housing demolitions, against thousands of Palestinian political activists rotting in Israeli jails. In Britain there is even a coalition called Enough! that brings together all major British trade unions, campaigns organizations and charities plus faith groups from the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities. Forty years is indeed Enough! Justice for Palestine needs to become more than a set of pat diplomatic phrases.
