‘Trigger-Happy’ Israeli Army and Police Use Reckless Force in the West Bank
3.2.2014 | Amnesty International
[Amnesty International] urges the USA, the European Union and the rest of the international community to suspend all transfers of munitions, weapons and other equipment to Israel. “Without pressure from the international community the situation is unlikely to change any time soon,” said Philip Luther. “Too much civilian blood has been spilled. This long-standing pattern of abuse must be broken. If the Israeli authorities wish to prove to the world they are committed to democratic principles and international human rights standards, unlawful killings and unnecessary use of force must stop now.” Read document at: HRJ Palestine Collective

Missing Headlines: Stories of Life in Palestine | $15

By Emily Schick
“A few months ago, I wouldn’t have noticed this information missing from the article… Ahmad’s death kept me awake for days. I was haunted by the disappearance of his story.”
From the first of February to the first of July 2010, Emily Schick worked as an activist with the International Solidarity Movement. Her stories from East Jerusalem and the West Bank show not only the reality of life in Palestine, but the conspicuous silences of American media. The Palestinian struggle is brought into an understandable and tangible context through a series of essays on her work as ISM’s media coordinator, life on the street with evicted Palestinian families, and being shot at a nonviolent demonstration. What’s missing from the headlines? It’s time to find out…

Important Facts about the Second Gaza Massacre

11.20.2012 | HRJ Palestine Collective

The HRJ Palestine Collective believes that it is important to be aware of the facts surrounding this tragic situation at hand. Please note and circulate this information widely. The illegal and brutal Israeli occupation of Palestine and its inhumane blockade of Gaza (a form of collective punishment as it targets the civilian population of Gaza which is illegal under international law according to Amnesty International) must be stopped!
