Stop the massacres in Palestine – day of action on 8 June

Since October, the violence perpetrated by the Israeli far-right and Israeli army against Palestinians has only increased, reaching genocidal proportions by imposing an unbearable siege on the population in which famine affects everyone and the Israeli army’s bombings and murders by drones are constant.

In the north of the Gaza Strip, which has been split in two for several months now, what little news is getting out is more catastrophic than ever, as this part of the world is effectively cut off from all supplies of water, food and healthcare.

In the south, Israel has forced Gazans to move to Rafah and along the Egyptian border, then near the sea in an ever smaller area where the density of displaced population is only increasing. The Israeli army is currently attacking and bombing this area full of civilians, breaking ever more despicable horror records.

In the West Bank, the settlers and the Israeli army are exploiting the situation, in line with Israel’s colonial policy, to multiply murders, violence, destruction, land seizures and humiliation of the Palestinian population.

Israel, with the support or complicit indifference of the majority of Western countries, including France, allows itself to ignore the condemnations and arrest warrants issued by international legal bodies, and is actively campaigning to weaken international law.

Mobilisations for a ceasefire, an end to the genocide in Palestine and the release of all hostages have continued non-stop since October, despite repression by the French government. They have resumed in earnest in recent days.

In this context, we communicated in October about the links between video games and the politics of violence around the world. Today, the STJV is joining the unitary call initiated by the CGT, and is calling on video game workers and the population as a whole to come together and demonstrate en masse on Saturday 8 June.

We demand:

  • an end to war crimes and crimes against humanity as named by the International Criminal Court
  • compliance with international humanitarian law
  • an immediate ceasefire and the lifting of the blockade on Gaza
  • an end to the bombing and forced displacement of the population
  • the protection of the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank
  • the release of Israeli hostages held by Hamas
  • the release of the thousands of Palestinian prisoners held without trial in Israel;
  • an trade embargo on settlements in occupied Palestine
  • sanctions, including the suspension of the association agreement between the European Union and Israel
  • an immediate cessation of all military cooperation with Israel and all arms deliveries
  • a just and lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis
