[email protected]: Stop Demolition of Palestinian Village of Susya

Call on Secretary Kerry to make absolutely clear that the U.S. will not tolerate the demolition of Susya.

Why is this important?

In days, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman will decide whether to destroy 40% of the Palestinian village of Susya, leaving a hundred people homeless. [1]

Susya residents live on their agricultural lands, having been expelled from their original homes after an Israeli settlement was established nearby. Systematically denied building permits for decades, the families live in constant fear of demolitions. Parts of their village were bulldozed in 2001, 2006 and 2011.

In July 2015, envoys from every EU state visited the village in solidarity. A month later, the U.S. expressed strong opposition to “any demolitions in the village.” But apparently, these statements have not been enough to make sure these families don’t see their homes destroyed again.

Urge Secretary Kerry to use the full influence of the United States to prevent the demolition of Susya by signing our petition.
