In defiance of international law, the state of Israel, with the direct aid of Washington and other Western imperialist nations, continues unabated to wage its campaign of complete elimination of the Palestinian people. The United States has repeatedly vetoed a ceasefire resolution in the United Nations Security Council, and has also led the effort to strip the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) of its funding, impeding the agency’s vital work to bring aid to Palestinians. UNRWA reports that it is currently unable to reach people in Northern Gaza where one in six children under age five are suffering acute malnutrition. Families report eating plants and animal feed to stay alive.

The starvation of Palestinians is a tool of genocide that is completely preventable. Hundreds of trucks filled with life-saving supplies are being denied entry into Gaza by Israel at the Rafah border crossing. Trucks that are allowed in, struggle to reach their destination due to Israel’s destruction of the roads and shortages of fuel. Palestinians who attempt to pick up supplies in the rare moments when they are available are targeted and killed by Israeli Occupying Forces.

Last week, ICSGP launched a campaign, spearheaded by Coalition member organization the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, the Palestinian member organization of La Vía Campesina, to bring an end to the use of starvation as genocide in Palestine. The UAWC/ICSGP campaign calls on social movements around the world to:

In Solidarity,
