Land Day 2011: Join the international campaign to Stop the Jewish National Fund

Stop the JNF Campaign announcement
30 March 2011

"Commemorating the Palestinian Land Day and the Global BDS Day of Action, the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC)… calls on people of conscience around the world to take civil and legal steps to oppose the presence and activities of the JNF in their countries due to its long-standing and intricate role in crimes of colonization, ethnic cleansing and apartheid against the Palestinian people. As a key pillar in Israel’s system of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid, the JNF should lose its charitable status anywhere; it should also be comprehensively boycotted by international civil society and by governments that consistently uphold the primacy of international law."  (Click here to read the full statement.)

Join the Campaign!

The JNF continues to serve as a global fundraiser for Israeli ethnic cleansing, occupation and apartheid. The JNF and its affiliate organizations enjoy charitable status in over 50 countries. Join us in revoking the charity status of the Jewish National Fund.
