Before dawn on one of the coldest nights of the year, Israeli security forces raided a home while a family slept. Officers pulled grandparents, parents, and children from bed and assaulted them, then quickly destroyed the home and everything in it, leaving 18 Palestinians homeless.
For decades, Israel has done this again and again, demolishing Palestinian homes to build settlements. Until now.
As Israel’s #1 trading partner, the EU has the leverage to stop the destruction. But so far, they’ve failed to do it. So in days, a group of international law experts are launching a new European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) to force the EU to end trade with all illegal settlements.
All we need to do is help them gather 1 million signatures and the EU will be required to consider the ban.
It will entail tremendous effort – everything from canvassing door to door to a massive online ad campaign. But we’ve done it before and can do it again. Can you chip in to power the signature campaign and finally pressure Israel to end its illegal settlements?
