Urgent – Demolition Alert
Please take action by signing our online petition and sharing it with your friends. You may also want to email Bob Carr directly – you can find a model letter and his email address here.
The Israeli Civil Administration has distributed maps of locations /areas in Susiya, near Hebron in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, indicating that demolition of 51 structures will take place.
Our online petition asks Foreign Minister Bob Carr to make urgent representations to Israel’s Ambassador in Australia regarding the need to lift the demolition orders on the fifty one (51) structures in the village of Susiya, near Hebron.
If demolition takes place, not only it will more than 100 people be displaced and made homeless, but community buildings funded through international aid programmes, may be demolished.
These include a clinic funded by Action Aid Australia, as well as a solar panels, shop, a community center, a structure used to store sheep’s milk prior to sale, granaries and shelters for sheep and chickens.
Please let Austrlian Foreign Minister Bob Carr know you expect him to act to protect this investment of the Australian taxpayer and the homes of Susiya villages. Email him now email@example.com or telephone his office (02) 6277 7500
