STOP ETHNIC CLEANSING

SOLIDARITY WITH PALESTINE NOW!

The Palestinian communities of SHEIKH JARRAH and SILWAN in East Jerusalem call upon the international community (that’s YOU) to stand with them against the Israeli military’s campaign to evict them

In Silwan, 1500 people will be made homeless on the basis that the homes have no legal permits under Israeli law. Yet these homes were constructed long before Israel (illegally) annexed East Jerusalem. Furthermore, Israel, being a military occupier, rarely gives such building permits to Palestinians.

In Sheikh Jarrah, 500 people will be removed from their homes due to Israeli settlers’ legal claims from the Ottoman period. Yet their documents cannot be corroborated by the Turkish government’s extensive Ottoman archive, strongly suggesting these documents are FORGED.

These evictions are part of a larger plan by the Jerusalem municipality to lower the number of ethnically Palestinian residents of Jerusalem to less than 12% by 2020. In other words, ETHNIC CLEANSING. In total, 2000 people, including children and elderly folk will be made homeless in Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan.

WE CAN STOP THIS.

JOIN US at NOON on JULY 13th in front of the Israeli consulate at 456 Montgomery Street, as San Francisco takes part in the INTERNATIONAL ACTION against the evictions. Visit standupforjerusalem.org for more information.
