Palestinians are being forced from their homes, detained and killed – all to make way for more illegal Israeli settlements.

For 50 years too many, entire communities have been displaced by these settlements. And the UK government is supporting this.

Urge them to ban Israeli settlement goods now.

Ban trade with Israel's illegal settlements

50 years too many

Over the past half century, Israel has forced tens of thousands of Palestinians off their land to build settlements that exclusively house Israeli settlers.

This is illegal under international law.

For 50 years too many, entire Palestinian communities have been displaced by these settlements. Their homes and livelihoods are destroyed, their movement restricted, their access to their own land, water and natural resources barred. They are also subject to violent attack by the Israeli army and settlers.

 

The trade in goods produced in the settlements is highly profitable. Allowing it to continue enables the settlements to expand, condones human rights violations, and undermines international law.

Call on the UK government to help end the human rights violations suffered by Palestinians living under Israel’s occupation by banning trade with the illegal settlements.
