Nevada Green Party stands against the brutal apartheid regime of Israel, in support of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israel
(LAS VEGAS, Nev.) — Our Green values oblige us to support popular movements for peace and demilitarization in Israel-Palestine, especially those that reach across the lines of conflict to engage both Palestinians and Israelis of goodwill.
We support the implementation of boycott and divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era, which includes pressuring our government to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel; and we support maintaining these nonviolent punitive measures until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by:
⦁ Ending its occupation and colonization of all Palestinian lands and dismantling the Wall in the West Bank
⦁ Recognizing the fundamental rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
⦁ Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194
We support a U.S. foreign policy that promotes the creation of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis on the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan as the national home of both peoples, with Jerusalem as its capital.
The Nevada Green Party calls for:
⦁ An immediate end to economic and political colonialism worldwide.
⦁ An immediate end to U.S. weapons sales and all military aid to Israel.
⦁ An end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and the restoration of the right of Palestinian people to self-determination as stipulated in multiple U.N. resolutions.
⦁ Full support for the right of return of over seven million displaced Palestinian refugees.
⦁ Full support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement led by Palestinians and inspired by the South-African anti-apartheid movement.
