Demand the Australian Government acts to prevent genocide in Gaza

Take ACTION and demand the Australian Government put pressure on Israel to abide by the International Court of Justice’s binding ruling for Israel to act immediately to prevent genocide in Gaza.

On 26 January 2024, the International Court of Justice found Israel had a plausible case of genocide to answer in Gaza, ordering that it stop its killing and maiming of Palestinians and enable and facilitate the unfettered flow of humanitarian aid.

Since then, Israel has continued to kill civilians in their thousands, bomb and destroy hospitals, use starvation as a weapon of war and cause immeasurable damage to infrastructure and the environment. 

The killing and destruction must stop.

Check your Superfund

Oppose apartheid? Support justice for Palestinians?
Don’t fund your retirement on the dispossession of Palestinians.
Ask your superfund if they invest in companies linked to illegal Israeli settlements.

Send your super fund a letterand and ask the question ‘do you invest in companies linked to illegal Israeli settlements and arms industry?’ and bring it to their attention. A couple of minutes of your time may contribute towards the ultimate cessation of these crimes.


Boycott a commercial product

The Boycotts, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement is a powerful strategy to ensure that the funds you spend are not funding Israel’s settler-colonial project or apartheid regime. 

The official BDS list is below. Head to the BDS website to learn more about targeted boycotts!

2. Ban Elbit Systems from Australian Government contracts

We therefore ask the House to – – Ban Elbit Systems from receiving Australian Government contracts – Cancel the existing $917m contract with Elbit Systems.


We the undersigned, join civil society and advocacy organisations across NSW calling on Premier Chris Minns and the NSW Government to address the vital issue of protecting the right to protest in our state. The right to protest is a fundamental democratic right that allows us to express our views, shape our societies, and press for social change. In NSW and nationally across Australia, it is under attack.

The review of these laws is scheduled to take place after 1 April 2024 and will be carried out by the Department of Roads and the Attorney-General’s Department. We call on the Premier to ensure that this review will seek public submissions and be undertaken in a clear and transparent manner.

Elected officials: Sign the Joint Statement

Joint Statement by Current and Former Australian Elected Representatives on the Situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Sign the statement

This statement was initiated by a cross-party group of NSW State MP’s and was released on the 19/12 with over 200 signatories. As of 20/12 there are now over 250 signatories, with this list continuing to be updated

Signatories are still open for all current and former Australian elected representatives from local councils, as well as state, territory and federal parliaments.

To join the statement, please fill in the form that follows the statement:

As current and former Australian elected representatives from all levels of government, we make the following statement in support of an immediate, permanent ceasefire and a just and lasting peace:
  1. All states have an obligation to contribute to upholding international law, including human rights, international humanitarian law and the other universally accepted norms of the international legal system.
  2. For too long the human rights of the Palestinian people have been grossly violated, in the context of broader circumstances that also breach international law and pose a grave threat to international peace and security.
  3. These violations began in 1948 with the violent displacement of some 700,000 Palestinian people from their homeland. These people, and hundreds of thousands more displaced since, have all been denied a right of return.
  4. The occupation by Israel of the West Bank and Gaza, ongoing since 1967, continues to involve military occupation, illegal settlement expansion, land theft, violence, discrimination, restrictions on movement and the subjugation of the Palestinian people. The situation is intolerable and to the shame of the international community.
  5. While Gaza was cleared of illegal Israeli settlements in 2005, the ongoing blockade clearly constitutes an occupation under applicable international law standards.
  6. It is beyond dispute that Israel is committed to policies designed to entrench the domination of one people over another in the territories of Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Attempts to deny this, or smear those who allege it, are an attempt to defy truth and reality.
  7. These events and policies have involved the destruction of Palestinian society and the denial of the legitimate national aspirations of the Palestinian people.
  8. On 3 March 2021 the International Criminal Court announced it had opened an investigation into Israel and certain Palestinian armed groups. The Chief Prosecutor of the Court has announced it, “encompasses conduct that may amount to Rome Statute crimes committed since 13 June 2014 in Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem”.
  9. We note Australia is a state party to the International Criminal Court and bound by its statute which makes criminal the gravest international crimes.
  10. The deliberate or reckless killing of innocent civilians is never defensible, whatever the context, and both the horrific acts of Hamas on 7 October and the horrendous scale of the civilian death toll caused by the Israeli military response will properly form part of that investigation.
  11. We call on the Australian Government to publicly advocate for an immediate permanent ceasefire, to continue to call for the release of all hostages and urge that all parties fully comply with international standards.
  12. We call on the Australian Government to recognise Palestine as a state that is entitled to be free of occupation.
  13. We call on the Australian Government to examine its relationship with Israel, with a focus on positively contributing to the resolution of this intolerable and dangerous situation that threatens the people of Israel and Palestine and the entire international community.
  14. We stand with Palestine, the Palestinian people, including Palestinian Australians and with all others who support truth and justice, including the many Jewish people protesting Israeli violence against Palestinians.
