Petition – We don’t want to collaborate with Genocide!

To the House of Representatives


We, the undersigned respectfully request:

That in light of:

  1. The most recent disproportionate brutal attack on the Gaza Strip by Israeli armed forces and consequent civilian deaths and injuries.

  2. The expulsions of Palestinians from their homes in the Palestinian Occupied Territories to provide for Jewish-only settlements in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and international humanitarian and human rights law

  3. The apartheid laws and practices which discriminate against Palestinian citizens of Israel

  4. The refusal of Israel to allow the return of Palestinian refugees to their land and homes in Palestine as demanded by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194 in 1948.

  5. Israel’s complete ignoring of calls from the international community for Israel to comply with the terms of international law as outlined in UN Security Council Resolution 2334 cosponsored by New Zealand in 2016.

That the House of Representatives urge the government to immediately close the Israeli embassy in Wellington and sever all diplomatic relations with the State of Israel as New Zealand did in 2004.
