Urgent Actions

Worldwide: Sign Ciristian Zionism Petition

The Temple Institute, by any measure an extremist organization, aided by extremist Christian Zionists in the United States, plans to sacrifice what they claim to be a “red heifer” in the coming days, on a plot of land overlooking the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. This is part of their plan to bring about the building of the Third Temple. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/israel-war-hamas-red-heifers-from-texas-jerusalem-jewish-temple-al-aqsa/

Europe: Support Eurovision boycott

Palestinians have called for a boycott of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest because of the refusal of its organisers to expel genocidal and apartheid Israel from the competition. Participation in Eurovision provides Israel a platform to artwash its ongoing genocide.
