SOLIDAR members in Europe and partners in Israel and Palestine call for an immediate end to the violence!
Everyday sees a worsening of the situation: since Israel started, as a reaction to Hamas provocations, bombing the Gaza strip, civilians have been the main victims and their number is steadily increasing. Whoever has been in the Gaza strip knows that a "clean war" is impossible. For too many years, both sides have been calling for peace, making proposals and asking for international support, but no significant and sustainable solution has been found yet.
SOLIDAR Secretary General Conny Reuter and International Cooperation Coordinator Andrea Maksimovic, together with Sergio Bassoli the Chair of the International Cooperation Committee are currently on a visit to Israel and Palestine. The four-day mission encompasses meetings with SOLIDAR member organisations working in the field, with partners in both Israel and Palestine, trade unions and other key civil society actors engaged in working on the issue.
Stop the massacre: Stop the invasion of Palestine
The dramatic escalation of violence observed recently in the Middle East is the direct consequence of the failure of the Peace Process which was started ten years ago, and of Israel's continued occupation of Palestinian territories in violation of UN Resolutions and International Law.
