Palestine Justice Coalition

About

Palestine Justice Coalition (formerly Palestine Israel Action Committee) is a project of the Resource Center for Nonviolence, works through education, advocacy, and action for justice, equality, and lasting peace for Palestinians and Israelis based on human rights, international law, and relevant UN resolutions.

Position Statement

  • We oppose US military, diplomatic, financial, corporate, and other contributions to Israel’s occupation and apartheid policies.
  • We support Palestinian civil society’s call for boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and universal principles of human rights.
  • We respect and promote Palestinian refugees’ right to return to their homes as specified in UN resolution 194.
  • We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle to end all forms of Israeli occupation, including military legal, economic, cultural, and political oppression.
  • We insist that Israel recognize and implement the full equality of Palestinian Citizens of Israel.
  • We oppose Islamophobia and anti-Semitism along with any expression of bigotry directed at any person or group.
  • We reject the charge of anti-Semitism when used spuriously to silence legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies and practices.
The Palestine Justice Coalition welcomes all people to join in efforts towards peace and justice in the middle east! PJC works with the local JVP, WILPF, PCF, churches, and other groups and individuals working for Peace with Justice for both Israel and Palestine.
Monthly meetings occur at the RCNV. Our doors are open to everyone! Come join us!

CONGRESS GOV 202-224-3121

H.R. 2590 – To promote and protect the human rights of Palestinians living under Israeli military occupation and to ensure that United States taxpayer funds are not used by the Government of Israel to support the military detention of Palestinian children, the unlawful seizure, appropriation, and destruction of Palestinian property and forcible transfer of civilians in the West Bank, or further annexation of Palestinian land in violation of international law.

We have a role to play; U.S. taxpayers send $3.8 billion in aid each year to Israel, with no meaningful requirements to use that money in a way which does not contribute to systemic human rights violations.

We urge you to support conditioning our aid to Israel by cosponsoring H.R. 2590, which would prohibit the U.S. from funding the stealing of Palestinian land or deploying of equipment or personnel into the West Bank in support of annexation.

The Israeli government’s plan to steal 2,000 Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem violates Article 53 of the Geneva Convention.

Israel’s disproportionate attack on Gaza has resulted in the death of over 100 Palestinian lives this week – one quarter were children.

These atrocities are not new or exceptional. Human Rights Watch recently found the Israeli government has been systematically committing crimes against humanity, specifically crimes of persecution and apartheid.
