Under occupation, Palestinian human rights are being violated with unlawful acts of violence being committed by the Israeli government, army and settlers. Due to the lack of adequate UN presence, the presence of international activists is needed to support Palestinian nonviolent resistance. International activists are witnesses to and reporters of the daily suffering of the Palestinian population.

When Palestinian activists try to work or protest alone, they face Israeli violence and humiliation in the form of bombings, shootings, beatings, house demolitions, denial of access to food and water, long-term arrests without trial, permanent injuries and murder.

How do we take action?

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a Palestinian-led movement of Palestinian and International activists who support the Palestinian struggle for freedom and an end to Israeli occupation.

  • We utilize nonviolent direct-action methods of resistance to confront and challenge the illegal Israeli occupation forces and policies.
  • We call for an immediate compliance and implementation of all United Nations (UN) resolutions pertaining to the end of Occupation and the Right of Return.
  • We support the Palestinian right to resist the occupation, as provided for by international law via legitimate armed struggle.
  • We call for immediate international intervention to protect the Palestinian people and to ensure Israel’s compliance with international law.

What work do we do?

International activist presence helps preserve the dignity of the Palestinian people, and reduces the violence and persecution Palestinians face from the Israeli army and settlers. International activists engage in various forms of nonviolent, direct action resistance.

  • Document and report the humiliation and injustices Palestinians face daily.
  • Accompany Palestinians breaking 24 hour curfews to access food and water.
  • Escort children to schools and patients to hospitals during curfew times.
    Assist Palestinian farmers to work their lands.
  • Accompany Palestinians attempting to get through roadblocks, on foot or in ambulances.
  • Deliver food, water and medical supplies to isolated areas and communities under siege.
  • Protect homes from demolition.
