Send a message to the candidates: commit to Palestine to make a difference in the elections!

To find the form for sending an email to your candidate, go to the page of the European Coordination of Committees and Associations for Palestine.

The standard email – in French – to send to your candidate, below:

“On Friday January 26, 2024, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) found it plausible that Israel's actions could constitute genocide against the 2.3 million Palestinians in the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip. The ICJ also issued six interim measures, ordering Israel to prevent acts of genocide in Gaza. Since the judges handed down their decision, the situation has deteriorated further. More than 30,000 Palestinians have died, including more than 10,000 children in less than five months. More than 1.7 million people are displaced and 93% of them suffer from hunger. The devastation is undeniable. The ICJ ruling has broader implications for all States, as all States have an obligation to refrain from, prevent and punish genocide wherever it occurs.

On February 23, a group of United Nations experts issued an urgent call for an immediate end to arms exports to Israel.

As we prepare to vote on June 6-9, it is essential that candidates prioritize representing the interests and main concerns of European citizens. I support candidates who commit to being the voice of the people throughout their term, defending international law and supporting the implementation of decisions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). This is your opportunity to show your commitment to international law, human rights and solidarity by joining me in taking the pledge “Defend International Law, Vote for Palestine!”

By subscribing to this pledge, you commit to advocating for the implementation of international law, relevant UN resolutions and ICJ judgments throughout your term. This is an opportunity to act on the demands expressed by myself and millions of citizens. Now is the time to make our voices heard and, above all, to protect lives under serious threat. I hope you will consider this email and commit to supporting it.

Thanking you in advance for your commitment, please accept, Madam, Sir, the expression of my distinguished greetings.

Please accept, Madam, Sir, the expression of my distinguished greetings,

Your name “
