Protest Israel’s threat to wipe Susiya off the map!

“Dear Friend,
Like all children, the children of the Palestinian village of Susiya want nothing more than to play with their friends, free of conflict and disturbances. Tragically, this is only a dream for so many Palestinian children, for whom violent military occupation is an everyday reality. For the children of Susiya, it means that their home could be demolished at any moment, and their entire village could be wiped off the map, since in May, Israel’s Civil Administration slated the village for demolition. This threat of expulsion has hung over the heads of the villagers of Susiya for at least twenty years. I first visited Susiya in 1995, as part of a group of Israeli activists making a solidarity visit to the village, whose residents were periodically forced to leave their homes for weeks or months at a time to accommodate IDF manoeuvres.”
With hope for a just and lasting peace,
