Recognise Palestine

To the Australian government and all UN member states:

We urge you to endorse the legitimate bid for recognition of the state of Palestine and the reaffirmation of the rights of the Palestinian people. It is time to turn the tide on decades of failed peace talks, end the occupation and move towards peace based on two states.

In 24 hours the UN Security Council will meet, and the world has an opportunity to embrace a new proposal that could turn the tide on decades of failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks: UN recognition of the state of Palestine.

Over 120 nations from the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America have already endorsed this initiative, but Israel's right-wing government and the US are vehemently trying to block it. Australia is still undecided. Only a massive urgent public push now could tip the government to back this momentous opportunity to move towards Palestinian self determination and an end to this bloody conflict.

US-led peace initiatives have failed for decades. But now most of the world is coming behind this bold new initiative, that could be the best opportunity to jump start a resolution of the conflict. We've got one day to call on the Australian government to endorse this statehood bid now, and make clear that citizens across the country support this legitimate, non-violent, diplomatic proposal. Sign the urgent petition and send this to everyone:
