Israel-Palestine

From our Platform

Our Green values oblige us to support popular movements for peace and demilitarization in Israel-Palestine, especially those that reach across the lines of conflict to engage both Palestinians and Israelis of good will.

We support the implementation of boycott and divestment initiatives against Israel similar to those applied to South Africa in the apartheid era, which includes pressuring our government to impose embargoes and sanctions against Israel; and we support maintaining these nonviolent punitive measures until Israel meets its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people's inalienable right to self-determination and fully complies with the precepts of international law by

  • Ending its occupation and colonization of all Palestinian lands and dismantling the Wall in the West Bank
  • Recognizing the fundamental rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
  • Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

We support a U.S. foreign policy that promotes the creation of one secular, democratic state for Palestinians and Israelis on the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan as the national home of both peoples, with Jerusalem as its capital.


  • from the Illinois Green Party

The Green Party has long stood in solidarity with the struggle for justice and liberation in Palestine. While the arrest of 2024 Green Party Presidential contender Jill Stein has been national news, Greens across the country (including in Illinois) have been joining rallies, marches, teach-ins, and encampments calling for an immediate ceasefire and the end of the current assault on Gaza, which has killed tens of thousands.


Despite local Zionists trying to spread false rumors that we have canceled this action, we have not.  See you on Tuesday!

By now it’s pretty clear that the Democratic Party is not going to stand up against genocide. Locally, it’s been months and we’re still waiting on a ceasefire resolution from City Council. And even worse, a Democratic-led County of Monroe has the nerve to fly a genocidal flag in front of the building.


Hey Y'all! Michael Dublin here. I want to give big props to JVP and other protesters who shut down a Raleigh street in an effort to get the incumbent US Representative, Deborah Ross, to ask for a Congressional cease-fire resolution to stop the slaughter of Palestinians by Zionist Israeli Forces.


On Thursday, February 22 upwards of 3,000 people gathered and marched in midtown Manhattan to show the popular opposition to the American Israel Public Affairs Council  (AIPAC). The march started at the north end of Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, marched down 2nd Avenue, to 45 Street - blocking traffic for most of the way, then up 3rd Avenue to 49th Street where we demonstrated in from of AIPAC's Manhattan office. It was cold, yet the crowd was vibrant.

Black voters feel trapped in the duopoly but other groups are giving a master class in political courage. The Abandon Biden campaign shows the way.

Face the Nation Host Margaret Brennan: Thasin, you did change your mind on the president. Why?

Thasin: I was a champion for Joe Biden until October 7. I feel he disowned us, disenfranchised us, with his stance on Gaza.

Brennan: What do you mean by that?


The Green Party of New York and about 125 upstate New Yorkers have signed onto a letter demanding Rep. Elise M. Stefanik resign from her seat representing the 21st Congressional District because of her support of Israel in the violence in Gaza.

It's got the support of Ralph Nader, 89, a repeat third-party, then independent presidential candidate from nearly 30 years ago, and his Washington-based group, the Center for Study of Responsive Law.

The Green Party of California has signed onto a letter calling on states to support South Africa's Genocide Convention Case against Israel at the International Court of Justice, being heard this week. Watch the proceedings of the case here.

The Green Party’s strong support of this vital call for justice deeply aligns with our core values, and with more than a thousand organizations as can be seen below the letter itself, found here.
