Freedom for Palestine

Sibagraphics wholeheartedly endorses OneWorld’s new song “Freedom for Palestine” and the call from Palestinian people for boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel until Israel respects international law, installs equal rights for all, ends its apartheid oppression and recognises the right of Palestinian people to return to their lands.

“Yesterday’s South African township dwellers can tell you about today’s life in the Occupied Territories… More than an emergency is needed to get to a hospital; less than a crime earns a trip to jail… If apartheid ended, so can the occupation. But the moral force and international pressure will have to be just as determined. The current divestment effort is the first, though certainly not the only, necessary move in that direction.”
– Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize laureate for his work against apartheid in South Africa

“The so-called ‘Palestinian autonomous areas’ are bantustans. These are restricted entities within the power structure of the Israeli apartheid system.”
– Nelson Mandela

“For over 20 years Israel has expanded by force of arms. After every stage in this expansion Israel has appealed to “reason” and has suggested “negotiations”. This is the traditional role of the imperial power, because it wishes to consolidate with the least difficulty what it has already taken by violence. Every new conquest becomes the new basis of the proposed negotiation from strength, which ignores the injustice of the previous aggression. The aggression committed by Israel must be condemned, not only because no state has the right to annexe foreign territory, but because every expansion is an experiment to discover how much more aggression the world will tolerate.”
– Bertrand Russell, 1970

“No people anywhere in the world would accept being expelled en masse from their own country; how can anyone require the people of Palestine to accept a punishment which nobody else would tolerate?”
– Bertrand Russell, 1970
