We urge you to immediately invoke the Genocide Convention on behalf of our country at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to stop Israel’s annihilation and genocide in Gaza. South Africa already launched this case on December 29, giving our country an opportunity to follow its lead.
Over 22,000 dead, 51,000 wounded, 1.9 million uprooted.
Parties to the Genocide Convention are obliged to act to prevent genocide; therefore, action must be immediate. A Declaration of Intervention filed with the ICJ in support of the South African case against Israel is one way to ensure that all acts of genocide are stopped and those responsible are held accountable.
Israel’s imposition of collective punishment on Gaza, relentlessly bombing civilians, denying an imprisoned population water, food, medicine and fuel – making life unlivable–meets the criteria for the crime of genocide.
I urge you to immediately file a Declaration of Intervention in support of the South African case against Israel at the International Court of Justice to stop the killing in Palestine.
