Since the beginning of the year, an extreme right-wing government led by Benjamin Netanyahu has rammed through radical legislation that risks turning Israel into a far-right dictatorship.
In protest, hundreds of thousands of Israelis have launched a massive pro-democracy civil resistance movement, unprecedented in Israeli history for its size and strength.
Now is a critical moment to show global support — to encourage the protesters not to back down. We must come together to show the movement bravely resisting dictatorship that the world is watching and that they have our support.
Netanyahu’s legislation is designed to give the government unchecked power over the judiciary, enabling full annexation of the West Bank, undermining the rights of women and members of the LGBTQ+ community, restricting religious freedom, and facilitating even more oppression of Palestinians living under Israeli rule and military occupation.
To the Israeli civil resistance movement:
We stand with you, the Israelis who are taking to the streets, blocking major highways, disrupting politicians, and on strike from your jobs.
We stand with you, the thousands of Israeli reserve soldiers — among you hundreds of combat pilots and special forces operatives — who have joined the resistance by announcing you will refuse service. You are turning the tide against Netanyahu’s far-right agenda.
We stand with you, as you face fierce backlash from the Israeli government — calling you, the protesters, “anarchists” and “foreign agents”. We stand with you as you face violence from right-wing gangs, who are attacking your protests more and more.
We stand with you, and we call on all people of conscience to stand in solidarity with you, the Israeli resistance movement. We stand with you in your struggle for a true democracy for all. You are not alone.
