Join CODEPINK Congress as we educate, activate and mobilize for peace legislation!

As Israel invades Rafah–threatening the lives of a million Palestinians, South Africa returns to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to ask the World Court to order Israel to withdraw from Rafah as part of additional emergency measures.

Back in January, the World Court, the highest judicial body of the United Nations, ordered Israel to prevent genocide against Palestinians in Gaza and to punish incitement to commit genocide, both treaty obligations under the UN Convention on Genocide.

Israel ignored those orders. Now what?

Join us as we discuss the latest developments in South Africa v. Israel, as well as UN efforts to secure full voting membership for Palestine.
