Position Overview

The Palestinian people are facing one of the most painful chapters in its history, with over 30,000 people killed in Gaza, close to 10,000 imprisoned, and the expansion of violence in the West Bank. At this moment, the struggle for Palestinian rights is more urgent and important than ever, and this struggle must be led by Palestinian voices. This is why Avaaz is building a team that can help mobilize strategic, people-led local and global action that can help achieve the change needed.
