Shuhada Street is an iconic symbol of the crushing subjugation of Palestinians under the Israeli occupation. What used to be a bustling shopping street has now become a ghost road with massive concrete boulders and heavily armed young soldiers at checkpoints at each end. Palestinians who need to pass through to go to work or home can be held for hours for no reason, harassed or humiliated.

Israel says it pushed out thousands of Palestinian families and shop owners from the heart of their city for security reasons. But the closure and increasing illegal colonisation by violent Israeli settlers in the area is in fact increasing tensions and insecurity.

Right now, the US government says it is negotiating a peace deal, but until there is an end to these endless violations of Palestiniansí basic rights, it's hard to imagine real peace. Letís send the Consuls General an urgent message to meet with the Governor of Hebron before anyone else is detained or hurt:

The situation is totally unjust -- Hebron is a city with nearly 200,000 Palestinian residents, who are banned from their main street, while 800 Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli soldiers, are allowed full access. If we can get key diplomats to visit the city, we could help expose this repressive segregation.

When diplomats themselves bear witness to this injustice, they will be more motivated to act. We have to act fast as more peaceful actions are planned now and there could be more violence. Letís flood key Consuls General in Jerusalem with messages to send a mission to visit the Governor of Hebron and speak out. Send an urgent mes sage now:
