Google has yet to acknowledge Palestine on Google Maps. They are knowingly overlooking Palestine’s international status and providing incorrect location information.
Google Maps does not acknowledge routes for Palestinians or the military checkpoints, leaving Palestinians unable to use its maps.
Erasing Palestine contributes to the disregarding of Palestinian rights and the imbalance of power between Israel-Palestine.
Stand up against the erasing of Palestine and sign our ‘Palestine On The Map’ petition to demand Google recognises Palestine on its Maps.
This petition will be addressed to Google’s Ethan Russell and Ronan Harris who have the power to set Google Maps labelling. This petition will be handed into Google’s London offices.
We are calling for musicians and the BBC to boycott Eurovision 2019 as demanded by Palestinians. While Eurovision is being broadcast from Israel, Palestinians will continue to be faced with military checkpoints, evictions, village demolitions and land theft.
By participating in Eurovision 2019, artists are ignoring and deflecting from Israel’s brutal oppression of the Palestinians. By broadcasting, the BBC is giving Israel a platform to gloss over its illegal occupation and continual human rights abuses. This aids the state of Israel in promoting itself and deflecting from the illegal occupation as part of its ‘Brand Israel’ strategy.
We are calling for artists to follow world-renowned artists like Lorde and Lana Del Rey who have respected the Palestinian’s calls for a boycott and withdrawn from performances in Israel.
Tweet at participating artists and the BBC asking them to respect Palestinian calls for the boycott.
Israeli produce is often grown in illegal settlements in the West Bank which is exported to other countries, including the United Kingdom. As a result, it has become increasingly difficult to trust where this produce is coming from, due to misleading labelling. We are asking consumers to #CheckTheLabel and boycott produce from Israel, West Bank and the Jordan Valley.
The boycotting of goods from illegal settlements produce is becoming well established. It is supported by the Co-operative, the Quakers, Amnesty International and the Trades Union Congress, alongside numerous organisations from across civil society.
However, there has long been calls for wider boycotting, as Israeli companies have been found to repeatedly breach food labelling regulations by labelling settlements goods as ‘produce of Israel’. Produce from the West Bank and the Jordan Valley are likely to be from illegal settlements.
Hewlett Packard (HP) install and maintain the control systems used in Israel’s checkpoints, provide technologies to both the Israeli Army and Navy, and produce bio-metric ID cards allowing Israel to monitor and restrict Palestinian movement.
We are not asking you to throw away your HP products. We are simply asking you to make a pledge to boycott HP products in the future.
Please sign the pledge and help us inform others about HP’s role in facilitating the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
The #HandsoffAlAqsa campaign is about educating people about the significance of Masjid al-Aqsa as the third-holiest site in Islam, which is currently physically deteriorating under the Israeli occupation.
We want to put al-Aqsa on the global political agenda in order to protect Masjid al-Aqsa from occupation and preserve this fundamentally sacred space.
FOA is calling for a boycott of Coca-Cola, in response to its support of Israel and its illegal and immoral occupation.
Coca-Cola violates international law and supports Israel’s occupation by operating a bottling plant in Atarot and Shadmot Mehola illegal settlements in the Jordan Valley.
Buying from companies which work in settlements such as Coca Cola means we as consumers are turning a blind eye to the illegal settlement of Palestinian land.
