Suspend Israel from sports

The Israeli offensive on Gaza has claimed the lives of 26,706 civilians, including 11,422 infants and children. 90% of Palestinians are internally displaced and living in inhumane conditions with “no electricity, no food, no water, no fuel.” No functional hospitals. No mosques. No churches. No libraries. No schools. No universities. No bakeries. At this rate, the brutal Israeli regime will soon destroy every aspect of life in Gaza, including its sports.

We thus urgently demand:

  • An immediate suspension of Israel from participation in all international sports until it fully complies with international law and sports regulations
  • For global and European sports governing bodies to immediately uphold their statutory obligations – especially their own rules on human rights and non-discrimination given Russian, South African and other precedents. This would include, inter alia, a ban on Israel competing at the 2024 Paris Olympics, FIFA World Cup, and UEFA’s EURO.
