Acting in solidarity with those oppressed

The campaigning organisation ACTSA (Action for Southern Africa) has welcomed the interim decision of the International Court of Justice, in the case South Africa brought against Israel under the Genocide Convention, with regard to acts of harm on the Palestinian people.

ACTSA, which was established as the successor to the Anti-Apartheid Movement, stated that 'the UK has special responsibilities to act to prevent further such crimes, considering its historic modus operandi in promoting racist policies, legislation and practices in Southern Africa for centuries.   Because of this history, the UK has a particular duty to proactively respond to the ICJ ruling and to do everything in its power to urgently bring about a peaceful end to the conflict'.
