Take action! Israeli authorities plan to bulldoze large parts of Silwan, Palestine

Palestinian families in Silwan, East Jerusalem, have been told they’ll lose their homes by the end of September. The Israeli authorities plan to demolish large parts of Silwan to build a controversial tourist site. But the community in Silwan is defiant, and they have come together to resist the demolitions. It’s vital that we support their struggle to stay in their homes.

Email the Mayor of Jerusalem now, and demand the Israeli authorities put a stop to demolitions in Silwan

Earlier this year War on Want reported on the use of British-made JCB bulldozers to demolish the children’s centre in Silwan, and uncovered evidence that JCB had sold armoured bulldozers to the Israeli army. Over a thousand people joined us to take action against JCB. Now, people in Silwan need our support as they fight to save their neighbourhood. The bulldozers could arrive at any time.

Take action now, and help stop the bulldozers in Silwan.

Share the campaign on Facebook and on Twitter using #SaveSilwan, and ask your friends to support Silwan.

Best wishes
