NCGP Calls for Ceasefire and an end of all aid to Israel from NC by NC Governor Roy Cooper & the NC Legislature

 


 

On May 28, 2024, the NC Green Party called on Governor Roy Cooper and the NC Legislature to call on President Biden to stop ALL aid to Israel and for an immediate and PERMANENT ceasefire. North Carolina must cut all ties with Israel.

The ICJ ruling on May 24, 2024, ordered that Israel must “immediately halt its military offensive, and any other action in the Rafah Governorate, which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.” The court also ordered that unimpeded humanitarian aid be allowed into the crossings and that access should be granted to allow for the investigation into the allegations of genocide. 

Since this ruling, Israel has continued to bomb the civilian population of Gaza, including designated safe zones. A refugee camp designated Block 2371 was bombed 60 times in the middle of the night while families were sleeping in tents. Dozens of Palestinians were killed today by “mistake” in an air strike on a tent city in Rafah with many more injured. While the world was incited to a frenzy on October 7, 2023, from debunked rumors of decapitated babies, even stories repeated by President Biden, there are videos and photos of an actual decapitated child from the assault in Rafah after Israel was ordered to stop the bombing. This was the red line given by President Biden that must be honored. 

The North Carolina Green Party is calling on Governor Roy Cooper and the North Carolina Legislature to call on President Biden to stop ALL aid to Israel and demand an immediate and PERMANENT ceasefire. If North Carolina continues to stand idly by and allow these atrocities to happen, every elected official is showing that they would rather stand by the illegal and unethical acts of genocide taken by a foreign government than stand with the rule of law. North Carolina must stand with the majority of Americans calling for a ceasefire by holding Biden accountable to his red line. Showing accountability means going a step further than calling for a ceasefire. North Carolina must also cut all ties with Israel. The Divestments from Companies Boycotting Israel Act of 2017 must be outlawed. HB942, the "Shalom Act", must not be passed without the understanding that the Palestinians are also Semites.

The North Carolina Green Party (NCGP) is the only left-wing political party to have placed its candidates on the ballot in this state in over 30 years. We're not Democrats or Republicans. We're a separate party—the Greens.

The North Carolina Green Party is an anti-racist, feminist, pro-worker political party that supports gender equality and diversity and rejects capitalism in favor of a democratically run economy that responds to the needs of community and planet. We believe positive social and political change will come when progressive and radical people determine that movement activism must also include this critical element: building our own political power outside the confines of the capitalist two-party system. For this reason, the NCGP is a membership-based, dues-paying party and is fundamentally and structurally different from the two major parties—we’re funded by individual working-class members, not corporate interests and the ruling elite.

What's the Green Party? The word "Green" means more than just the environment—it means "ecology," doing what's right for healthy systems. That's why we are feminist, why we are anti-racist, why we support gender equality and gender diversity, and why we reject capitalism—and why we believe all these things are interrelated. The NCGP is no ordinary party: we're a membership-based, dues-paying party funded by individuals. We're committed to social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
