World Cup Campaign: End Apartheid of Israel in Palestine
By Palestinian Return Centre
10 June, 2010
Ending Israeli Apartheid in Palestine is world’s responsibility
With the world focused on the 2010 world cup in symbolic South Africa
the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) is calling on the world community
to remember the ongoing struggle against apartheid and siege in
The world is invited to openly support Palestinians against the
racist apartheid regime. The Apartheid regime of Israel should be
dismantled as it deprives the Palestinians their basic rights to their
lands and homes from where they were expelled 1948. This regime of
apartheid is depriving Palestinians from their right of self
determination and their independent state.
PRC urges on the international community to impose sanctions against
Israel like it did with the previous apartheid regime in South Africa.
The international community has to stop supplying Israel with weapons
and support as it continues to violate human rights on a daily basis.
The World Cup must be a clear reminder of the Apartheid and
separation wall in the West Bank. The support for Israel is a support
for this wall which separates and displaces people. The wall has
turned Palestine into a new South Africa where people are separated
like Black South Africans into camps and Bantustans.
The massage of sport carries friendship and brotherhood with all
communities worldwide. The world cup is an opportunity to show global
support for Palestinians.
PRC invites Human Rights organizations, activists and supporters of
Palestine to participate in its campaign, “End Apartheid of Israel
in Palestine” we invite you to hold and wave the Palestinian flag
during the world cup games.
Your participation towards ending apartheid begins with the simple
endorsing of freedom and justice for people of occupied Palestine.

posters out and circulate it all over as a sign of support for the
oppressed people in Palestine. The posters can be accessed here:
