CeasefireNow: Action For Palestine

At WILPF, we know that women and children are disproportionately affected by war, militarism and violence. We remain horrified by the escalation of violence and continued destruction taking place in Gaza and must continue to advocate for peace and lobby decision makers to take meaningful action, rather than allowing them to remain complicit in this mass violence and indiscriminate killing of civilians.

Take Action!

In an attempt to support efforts to mobilise in response to the unfolding situation, we share some resources and guidance on what you can do to help stop the ongoing atrocities and loss of life, support demands for a just and sustainable peace, and act in solidarity with Palestinians:

Amplify Palestinian voices and demands: By sharing first hand testimonies, demands and supporting grass-root organising, we can amplify the voices of those most impacted by the violence and injustice.

Join mobilisations: Ask for the protection of civilian lives by joining mobilisations and doing actions and campaigns that are relevant locally. Advocate or the government, local councils and EU agencies to hold Israel accountable, including through imposition of economic sanctions, incremental restrictive measures, ban on arms trade, restrictions on individuals and companies involved in the settlements, and suspension of all security cooperation and free trade agreements with Israel.
