A heartening sign of growing activism for social justice & democracy in Israel in Palestine today

I publish below my translation of a status I found on Facebook today, by a “community” that now includes major organizations &  groups of activists. Where possible I have added links to info in English about these groups.

Please add your organization so we can share and collate information.

End of translation. & if you like, you could maybe read the list as poetry? (& if you do that, maybe I should remind or inform you that “B’tselem” takes its name from the passage in Genesis (1,27) where it says “God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
