An attack on human rights – how should we respond? A conversation with Sahar Francis and Ubai Aboudi, directors of two of the Palestinian NGO’s that the Israeli government outlawed
In late October, 2021, the Israeli minister of Defense falsely declared that six eminent and world respected Palestinian human rights and civil society organizations are terrorist groups. In this webinar the directors of two of those organizations will describe the work their organizations do and this attack on them.
In these perilous times, we desperately need to be seeking and supporting the truth. Please listen to these courageous people and discern for yourself if reporting human rights and defending civil liberties should be outlawed and consider our suggestions for doing something about it.

On October 19, 2021, six prominent Palestinian organizations were labeled as so-called “terrorist organizations” by the Israeli Minister of Defense, Benny Gantz.

It also threatens to set a dangerous precedent to “chill” civil society work not only in Palestine, but also in other regions around the world. More background information is available in this talking points/fact sheet document.
