Brief Background

These sections by country aim to put together highlights of possible actions for human rights and justice that are unique to each country (like US, Canada, Australia etc). Obviously there are also common actions that are to be done by all (e.g. campaigns like breaking the siege on Gaza).  Certainly and by nature actions in Palestine are the most significant and have led the actions for our freedom.  We in Palestine have engaged in resisting the Zionist project for 130+ years (the date of the first Zionist colony in Palestine).

We will soon put in this sections a history including selected examples of inspiring actions on the ground. We will also endeavor to help local resistance committees who do not have their own webpage by creating a webpage here for their activities. In the meantime, here is a list of local civil resistance/nonviolent struggle Groups (selected) that can be accessed to help:
