We’re supporting the campaign - led by the Palestinian BDS National Committee, Addameer and others - against G4S. This is their new campaign focus!
The British private security company G4S helps the Israeli government to run prisons at which Palestinian political prisoners are detained and subjected to torture.
Right now, there are more than 5,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails, including 183 children. Human rights organisations have documented widespread torture, including of children, and Palestinians are often held without trial indefinitely.
In June 2013, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest private charitable foundation in the world, purchased shares in G4S worth $172m, making it one of the company’s biggest shareholders.
Through its holdings in G4S, the Gates Foundation is legitimising and profiting from Israel’s use of torture, mass incarceration and arbitrary arrest to discourage Palestinians from opposing Israel’s apartheid policies.
Along with more than 100 organisations from Palestine to Brazil to South Africa, we’re campaigning to call on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to divest from G4S in the build up to Palestinian prisoner’s day on April 17. Please support the campaign by taking signing the petition and sharing it. You can also support the campaign by taking the following steps: 
What you can do:
Tell Bill Gates to divest from G4S!
Get your friends to sign the petition too, by sharing one Addameer’s #StopG4S images on Facebook.
Tweet the Gates Foundation asking them to divest. An example tweet: Tell the @Gatesfoundation to divest from Israel’s torture of Palestinians www.addameer.org/gatesdivest #StopG4S via @Addameer
Write a message on the Facebook page of the Gates Foundation calling on them to divest from G4S 
DO IT! DO IT NOW!

G4S, going for “world’s evillest collection of people”…

This is Mariam Barghouti. She is 20 years old and studies English and psychology at Birzeit University. Her favorite color is lime green and loves to read. She has a habit of looking high or having her eyes squinted whenever someone takes a picture of her, but not in this picture. Mariam is my best friend.
Last Friday, April 11, she attended a protest in Nabi Saleh. While she was leaving, she was stopped by Israeli Occupying soldiers and arrested with another woman based on slanderous testimonies made by Israeli soldiers. They were both taken to a police station where they underwent interrogation. The other woman that held the Jerusalem ID was able to be released on bail while Mariam, who holds a West Bank ID, was not. She was was falsely accused of throwing rocks.
Her first court hearing was held yesterday at Ofer. Her arrest was extended until Wednesday where her court hearing will continue. Everyone, please keep Mariam in your thoughts and pray for her immediate release.

This happens so frequently :( hope she gets released soon without charge or fine!

BEST. SETTLER. FAIL. EVER.
This dude tries to break into a Palestinian guy’s house to remove his Palestinian flag that is flying.
His racist colonialist justification: “This roof is mine, this entire country is mine and everything in this country is mine.”
He then gets stuck on barbed wire, and is trapped. The army come and try to help the settler, but (a) can’t easily remove him (b) try to get the flag down too, but stop trying when they see the situation is being filmed. You hear them saying “There’s no reason we do this by force when there are cameras around.”
AMAZING.

On the 3rd of March, a week ago today, Saji Darwish posted this photo up on his facebook of the funeral of Mou’taz Wasshe, killed by the Israeli army, with this caption: قولو لإمي بالله لا تبكيني ….قولولا دمعات عيونها بتكويني رحمك الله #معتز_وشحة ‘Tell my mother not to cry for me… Because her tears will burn me. RIP Mou’taz Wasshe’
Today, Saji Darwish, aged 18, was shot and killed by the Israeli army.
This was the second Palestinian killed by Israel today, as 38 year old Palestinian judge Ra’ed Alaa Addin Zuaiter was killed by an Israeli soldier at the Allenby crossing. The excuse of “he tried to snatch a soldier’s weapon” was given, but that’s a lie that’s been used before.

Palestinians attack Israeli army checkpoint

A group of activists targeted symbols of apartheid – a checkpoint gate, soldier bunker and army tower – near the West Bank town of Nablus on March 1st 2014.

This action was against the ongoing confiscation of Palestinians lands and the policy of Israeli assassinations, the latest of which was the killing of Muatazz Washaha, 24.

Instead of waiting for USA-backed negotiations to “sign away Palestine”, they are taking matters into their own hands.

Direct action gets the goodsSeems they even escaped before Israeli army jeeps arrived

BEST USE OF AN ANIMATED GIF EVER

To mark the end of Israeli Apartheid Week, we brought out our (varying!) dabke skills to protest Sainsbury’s selling of settlement goods.

Check us out in action! Thanks SO MUCH to all who came, it was epic!

why do boring flyering, when you can do DABKE and flyering?

CD Palestino, a football club in Chile founded by Palestinian immigrants, recently changed their jersey to have the number one shaped as the map of historic Palestine.

Zionist groups complained to the Chilean Football Federation and the club was subsequently fined $1,300 and told to design a new shirt. The numbers were not to be replaced with any symbols or maps.

Their response? Move the map to the front of the shirt. Even better. 

They said: ”For us, free Palestine will always be historical Palestine, nothing less.”

THIS IS FANTASTIC.

"Israeli forces are using excessive, reckless violence in the occupied West Bank, killing dozens of Palestinians over the past three years in what might constitute a war crime, Amnesty International said.

In a report entitled Trigger Happy, the human rights group accused Israel of allowing its soldiers to act with virtual impunity and urged an independent review of the deaths."
