Gaza Calling: All out on Saturday 9 August Day of Rage

Join the Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions Movement today. Demand Sanctions on Israel Now.

As we face the full might of Israel’s military arsenal, funded and supplied by the United States and European Union, we call on civil society and people of conscience throughout the world to pressure governments to sanction Israel and implement a comprehensive arms embargo immediately.

Take to the streets on Saturday 9 August with a united demand for sanctions on Israel.

From Gaza under invasion, bombardment, and continuing siege, the horror is beyond words. Medical supplies are exhausted. The death toll has reached 1813 killed (398 children, 207 women, 74 elderly) and 9370 injured (2744 children, 1750 women, 343 elderly). Our hospitals, ambulances, and medical staff are all under attack while on duty. Doctors and paramedics are being killed while evacuating the dead. Our dead are not numbers and statistics to be recounted; they are loved ones, family and friends.

While we have to survive this onslaught, you certainly have the power to help end it the same way you helped overcome Apartheid and other crimes against humanity. Israel is only able to carry out this attack with the unwavering support of governments – this support must end.

This is our third massacre in six years. When not being slaughtered, we remain under siege, an illegal collective punishment of the entire population. Fishermen are shot and killed if they stray beyond a 3 km limit imposed unilaterally by Israel. Farmers are shot harvesting their crops within a border area imposed unilaterally by Israel. Gaza has become the largest open-air prison, a concentration camp since 2006. This time, we want an end to this unprecedented crime against humanity committed with the complicity and support of your own governments!

We are not asking for charity. We are demanding solidarity, because we know that until Israel is isolated and sanctioned, these horrors will be repeated.

Take action this Saturday

Make boycotts, divestments and sanctions the main message at every protest around the world. Take banners and placards calling for sanction on Israel to every protest. Tweet them using the hashtag #GazaDayofRage. Email us your pictures and action details to GazaDayofRage@gmail.com
.
While news of all the mass protests outside Israel’s embassies around the world have given us hope, after weeks of protests, we urge you to intensify your actions. Occupy Israeli embassies, challenge Israeli officials (and others) supporting the current aggression against Gaza whenever they appear in public and stage sit-in in government buildings.

Boycott all Israeli products and take action against corporations profiting from Israel’s system of colonialism, occupation and apartheid. March to boycott targets in your city and educate the public about companies complicit in Israel’s ongoing military assault and illegal siege of Gaza.
Palestinian trade unions are calling on our brothers and sisters in the trade union movement internationally to stop handling goods imported from or exported to Israel. The trade union movement has a proud history of direct action against Apartheid in South Africa, the Congress of South African Trade Unions has joined us in the call for direct action to end Israel’s impunity.

Desde la ocupada y asediada Gaza

Llamamiento de Gaza: todos y todas a la calle el sábado 9 de agosto, Día de la Ira

Únete hoy al Movimiento de boicot, desinversión y sanciones. Exige ahora que se impongan sanciones a Israel.

Mientras nos enfrentamos a toda la fuerza del arsenal militar de Israel, financiado y suministrado por Estados Unidos y la Unión Europea, perdimos a la sociedad civil y a las personas de conciencia de todo el mundo que presionen a los gobiernos para que impongan sanciones a Israel y lleven a cabo inmediatamente un embargo total de armas.

Sal a las calles el sábado 9 de agosto con una reivindicación unitaria de sanciones a Israel.

El horror no se puede describir con palabras en Gaza bajo la invasión, los bombardeos y el continuo asedio. Se han agotado los suministros médicos. La cifra de personas muertas asciende a 1.813 personas asesinadas (398 niños, 207 mujeres, 74 personas ancianas) además de 9.370 personas heridas (2.744 niños y niñas, 1750 mujeres, 343 personas ancianas). Nuestros hospitales, ambulancias y personal médico están siendo atacados todos ellos mientras llevan a cabo su trabajo. Se está asesinado a médicos y personal sanitario mientras evacuan a los muertos. Nuestros muertos no son cifras y estadísticas que hay que contabilizar, son personas queridas, familiares y amigos.

Mientras nosotros tenemos que sobrevivir a esta embestida, sin duda tú tienes el poder de ayudar a acabar con ella de la misma manera que ayudaste a vencer al Apartheid y otros crímenes contra la humanidad. Solo con el inquebrantable apoyo de los gobiernos Israel puede llevar a cabo este ataque. Este apoyo tiene que acabar.

Esta es la tercera masacre que padecemos en seis años. Cuando no se nos masacra, estamos bajo asedio, un ilegal castigo colectivo a toda una población. Se mata a tiros a los pescadores si se alejan más allá del límite de 3 kilómetros impuesto unilateralmente por Israel. Se dispara a los agricultores cuando recogen sus cosechas en una zona limítrofe impuesta unilateralmente por Israel. Desde 2006 Gaza se ha convertido en la mayor prisión al aire libre, un campo de concentración. ¡Esta vez queremos que acabe este crimen contra la humanidad sin precedentes cometido con la complicidad y el apoyo de nuestros propios gobiernos!

No pedimos caridad. Pedimos solidaridad porque sabemos que hasta que no se aísle y sancione a Israel estos horrores se repetirán.

Actúa este sábado

Convierte el boicot, desinversión y sanciones en el mensaje principal de cada una de las protestas por todo el mundo. Saca pancartas y carteles pidiendo sanciones a Israel en cada protesta. Tweetealó utilizando el hashtag #GazaDayofRage. Envíanos las fotos y detalles de las protestas a GazaDayofRage@gmail.com.

Aunque las noticias de las protestas masivas ante las embajadas de Israel de todo el mundo nos han dado esperanzas, después de semanas de protestas, os urgimos a intensificar las acciones. Ocupad las embajadas israelíes, poned en entredicho a los altos cargos israelíes (y a otras personas) que apoyen la actual agresión a Gaza siempre que aparezcan en público y organizad sentadas en edificios públicos.

Boicotead todos los productos israelíes y actúa contra las empresas que se aprovechan del sistema de colonialismo, ocupación y apartheid de Israel. Haced manifestaciones hacia lo que sea susceptible de ser boicoteado en vuestras ciudades y concienciad al público acerca de las compañías que son cómplices del actual ataque y del ilegal asedio a Gaza.

Los sindicatos palestinos hacen un llamamiento a nuestros hermanos y hermanas del movimiento sindical internacional a dejar de comerciar con bienes importados a Israel o exportados desde ahí. El movimiento sindical tiene una historia digna de orgullo de acción directa en contra del Apartheid en Sudáfrica y el Congreso de Sindicatos Sudafricanos se nos ha unido en el llamamiento a la acción directa para acabar con la impunidad de Israel.

Chamado de Gaza: Dia Global de Fúria, sábado, 9 de agosto

Vamos tomar as ruas e fazer ações nesse dia com uma exigência unificada em todas as vozes do mundo: sanções contra os crimes de Israel .

Junte-se à campanha por Boicote, Desinvestimento e Sanções contra Israel já.

Enquanto enfrentamos todo o poderio do arsenal militar de Israel, financiado e fornecido pelos Estados Unidos e União Europeia, chamamos a sociedade civil e as pessoas de consciência em todo o mundo para pressionar os governos para que sancionem Israel e implementem um imediato e abrangente embargo de armas .

Ás ruas, sábado 09 de agosto. com uma voz unificada por sanções contra Israel.

De Gaza sob invasão, bombardeio e cerco continuado, o horror está além das palavras. Suprimentos médicos estão esgotados. O número de mortos chegou a 1.813 mortos (398 crianças, 207 mulheres, 74 idosos) e 9370 feridos (2.744 crianças, 1.750 mulheres, 343 idosos). Nossos hospitais, ambulâncias e equipes médicas estão todos sob ataque quando em serviço. Médicos e paramédicos estão sendo mortos durante a retirada dos mortos. Nossos mortos não são números e estatísticas a serem contadas; eles são pessoas amadas, parentes e amigos.

Enquanto nós temos que sobreviver a este ataque, vocês certamente têm o poder de ajudar a acabar com ele da mesma forma com que ajudou a superar o Apartheid e outros crimes contra a humanidade. Israel só é capaz de realizar este ataque com o apoio incondicional dos governos–este apoio deve acabar.

Este é o terceiro massacre que sofremos em seis anos. Quando não estamos sendo abatidos, permanecemos sob cerco, sob uma punição coletiva ilegal de toda a população. Pescadores são baleados e mortos se desviam para além de um limite de 3 km impostos unilateralmente por Israel. Os agricultores são baleados quando fazem suas colheitas dentro de uma área de fronteira imposta unilateralmente por Israel. Gaza tornou-se a maior prisão a céu aberto, um campo de concentração, desde 2006. Desta vez, queremos um fim a este crime sem precedentes contra a humanidade, cometidos com a cumplicidade e o apoio de seus próprios governos!

Nós não estamos pedindo caridade. Estamos exigindo solidariedade, pois sabemos que, até que Israel seja isolado e sancionado, esses horrores se repetirão.

Tome uma atitude neste sábado

Boicotes, desinvestimentos e sanções são a principal mensagem a todos os protestos em todo o mundo. Leve faixas e cartazes pedindo punição a Israel em cada protesto. Tuiteie usando a hashtag # GazaDayofRage. Envie-nos as fotos e os detalhes da ação para GazaDayofRage@gmail.com.

Enquanto notícias de todos os protestos em frente às embaixadas de Israel em todo o mundo nos deram esperança, depois de semanas de protestos, nós clamamos a que as ações sejam intensificadas. Ocupem embaixadas israelenses, contestem as autoridades israelenses (e outras) que apoiam a agressão contra Gaza sempre que aparecerem em público, organizem manifestações pacíficas em prédios do governo.

Boicotem todos os produtos israelenses e façam ações contra as corporações que lucram com o sistema de colonialismo, ocupação e apartheid de Israel. Façam marchas de boicote a símbolos de Israel em sua cidade e eduquem o público sobre as empresas cúmplices do assalto militar e cerco ilegal de Gaza em curso por Israel

Sindicatos palestinos estão pedindo a nossos irmãos e irmãs no movimento sindical internacional para interromper o processamento de produtos importados ou exportados para Israel. O movimento sindical tem uma história orgulhosa de ação direta contra o Apartheid na África do Sul. O Congresso Sindical Sul-Africano juntou-se a nós na chamada para a ação direta para acabar com a impunidade de Israel.
