URGENT ACTION: Australia must support ICC arrest warrants against Netanyahu and Gallant

On the 20th of May 2024, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced that he intended to seek arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Minister of Defence Yoav Gallant. This was then followed by yet another legally binding ruling by the International Court of Justice that Israel halt its attack on Rafah.

While this signifies an historic turning point towards what could potentially be the end of Israeli international impunity, we can only lament that it has taken 76 years of ethnic cleansing and almost eight horrifying months of active genocide in Gaza.

We must seize this opportunity to demand that the Australian Government ends its wilful negligence and finally accepts its legal and moral obligations to demand accountability from Israel.

Join us in calling on the Australian Government to affirm and support the ICC’s independence and its application for arrest warrants, and to use this moment to sanction Israel.
