We are Israelis and Palestinians marching together, to demand justice and an end to the violence of occupation.Combatants for Peace - On the 1st January, Harun Abu Aram was shot and paralyzed by Israeli forces in the Palestinian village of al- Rakiz. Abu Aram was one of several villagers rebuilding their previously demolished home, when soldiers arrived and ordered them to stop, claiming it was illegal despite the land being privately owned. In a usual tactic designed to deprive residents of Area C of construction tools, the soldiers began to drag away the power generator, which Abu Aram, who was unarmed, resisted. He was shot in the neck with live ammunition.Combatants for Peace are one of the groups demonstrating every Friday in the South Hebron Hills. We are Israelis and Palestinians marching together, to demand justice for Harun and his family, and an end to the violence of occupation. [ak]28/1/2021

NGOs call on Biden to rescind Trump`s measures against the International Criminal CourtInternational Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) - Mr. President, we call on you to demonstrate your commitment to human rights and the international legal order by fully rescinding your predecessor’s Executive Order 13928, blocking the property of "Persons Associated with the International Criminal Court” and the Executive Order of June 11, 2020, which authorized "sanctions against persons engaged in activities before an independent judicial body – the ICC – as well as civil and criminal penalties against those who provide support to such". To allow these to remain in effect will call into question the US` stated commitment to human rights, the rule of law and the international legal order.[ak] The ICC continues to anchor the fight against impunity at the international level, and is a key agent for holding those alleged to bear the greatest responsibility for core international crimes to account before impartial, independent justice and with fair trial guarantees. 28/1/2021

60 High School Seniors: We Won`t be Soldiers of the Israeli Occupation!Daniel, Refuser Solidarity Network - Hello, my name is Daniel. I`m 18 year old from Tel Aviv and I`m part of a new group of teens, school seniors and youth refusers. We`re called the Shministim Letter - 60 teens and youth aged 16-21 signed the statement we sent to Israeli Prime Minister, calling for refusal to enlist to the Israeli military. `Shministim’, literally meaning 12th graders, is a movement of high school seniors who publicly refuse to serve in the Israeli military as a conscientious objection to the occupation and oppression of Palestinians. Over the last year, we’ve gotten together to learn about injustices and abuse that are an inherent part of the military regime. Together, we decided that right now, as Israel enters another election and Biden enters the white house, is the time to act. We demand justice, and justice demands solidarity and joint struggle. For the first time, our Declaration of Refusers focus on the Nakba (The destruction and exodus of Palestinian in 1948) alongside the 1967 occupation as a reason why we refuse. To quote from our letter itself, we believe that by drafting to the Israeli military :“We are ordered to put on the bloodstained military uniform and preserve the legacy of the Nakba.” [ak]7/1/2021
