Nasser Nawajah from Susiya has distributed this appeal which we reproduce below. Badayl Alternatives forwards this for action from our readers.
In days Israeli bulldozers plan to demolish my village in theHebronhills. But if people from around the world to stand with us in our struggle we may be able to remain in our homes.
My name is Nasser Nawajah, I’m 30 years old and live in a Palestinian village called Susiya in the occupiedWest Bank.Israelcalls my home an “illegal outpost” and is about to come and demolish the village for the sixth time since I’ve been here – unless you can help.
An ultra right wing Zionist group successfully petitioned the High Court to have our village destroyed — but with help from friendly groups inIsrael, we’ve won a brief two week reprieve. We now only have days left before the bulldozers are due to tear down our tents and trash our possessions. My people have lived on this land for generations — and together we can stop the Israeli authorities demolishing our clinic, our granaries and our solar panels.
If people from all over the world stands with Susiya we can keep our village alive and my home standing. Join us now to ensure that Israeli authorities know that the world is watching. Sign this petition now and share with your friends:
Unfortunately, my story is common all throughout theOccupiedPalestinianTerritories. My community lives in tents as we are routinely denied building permits. We don’t have running water, our wells are poisoned, but the illegal Israeli settler water pipes run just metres from my town.
Adding insult to injury, our ancestral land has been declared a national park, expelling residents that had been there for generations. Now international visitors and Israelis have free access, but my grandfather died without ever seeing his village again.
We have just days left before the Israeli bulldozers come to expel us for the sixth time. I don’t know where my people will go. Please sign the petition and make sure that the Israeli forces know that you and people from all over the world are watching:
My people have been expelled, humiliated, and dispossessed. Now, I ask you; please help to save my village.
