Internationalist solidarity with the Palestinian people under occupation
For decades, Israeli occupation has denied Palestinians access and control over their land, borders and natural resources. The occupation is the source of profound human and environmental rights violations against the Palestinian people, including pollution, destruction of livelihoods, land and water grabbing which affect food production and food sovereignty, discriminatory planning laws, forced evictions and displacements.
It is a situation of environmental nakba. We condemn the ongoing attacks by the Israeli State and urgently call on global leaders to use their diplomatic means to put a permanent end to the occupation. We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
