Women's organisations: "UN, end Israeli impunity!"
On the occasion of the 27th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC), a delegation of representatives of Palestinian and international women organizations descended on Geneva between 16th and 19th September. With a high sense of urgency, the delegation called upon the HRC and all member states to live up to their responsibilities to put an end to Israel’s impunity, uphold International Law, and bring justice to Palestinian victims of the latest assault on the Gaza Strip. Their message was clear and loud: “Enough is enough: Palestinians need justice, protection, freedom and dignity!”

In the Occupied West Bank, half a million Israelis live in over a hundred settlements built on Palestinian land. The government of Israel says it has a right to build these settlements; the rest of the world disagrees. Follwing video explains why Israelis choose to live on occupied land, how they affect Palestinians, and why, despite international condemnation, the settlements continue to grow.
Remember the solidarity shown to Palestine here and everywhere... and remember also that there is a cause to which many people have committed themselves, difficulties and terrible obstacles notwithstanding. Why? Because it is a just cause, a noble ideal, a moral quest for equality and human rights.
