Manchester Amnesty Weekly Action
Please do this action and make a difference.
You will probably have seen in the press that Amnesty issued a report entitled Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians last week.
Part of this apartheid system is the eviction of Palestinians from their homes, demolishing their houses and seizing their land for Israeli settlers.
Call on Naftali Bennett to immediately cancel all orders for forced evictions and home demolitions against Palestinians in Israel / Occupied Palestinian Territories and end the forced displacement of Palestinians.
