Solidarity with the Palestinians against Israel’s crimes!

Tuesday 15 May 2018, by NPA

On Monday, while some were celebrating the transfer of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, Gaza’s Palestinians demonstrated in their tens of thousands near the “border” with Israel. The Israeli army once again opened fire on the protesters: at the time of writing, no less than 52 people have been killed.

This bloodbath confirms that the state of Israel does not tolerate any questioning of its colonial policy and that Palestinians who dare to fight for their rights can at any time be killed in cold blood by an army accustomed to carrying out war crimes.

Palestinians have rights and have every right to mobilize to defend them: the NPA reiterates its unconditional support for the national and democratic rights of Palestinians, their right to self-determination and the right of return for refugees.

The NPA is indignant at this new episode of bloody repression, which has increased to more than 100 the number of Palestinians killed in Gaza since the protests of March 30, as well as the complicit silence of the Macron-Philippe government. And we do not forget that while Palestinians are being abused every day by the state of Israel, Netanyahu has been received twice by Macron in less than a year.

The blockade of Gaza, the colonization of the West Bank and Jerusalem, discrimination against the Palestinians of Israel, arbitrary detentions, assassinations: Israel’s impunity for these outrages must stop! The NPA reiterates its commitment to the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) campaign and will continue to support it; as long as the State of Israel does not respect international law, it must be punished and made accountable for its crimes.
