From the field
In a joint statement published on 5 Nov. 2021, we called on the international community to unequivocally oppose Israel’s designation of six Palestinian NGOs as ‘terrorist organizations’. As our statement says: criminalizing human rights organizations is an act of cowardice, characteristic of authoritarian regimes. The designations are intended to intimidate donors and hurt support for the organizations. We urge all donors of the six NGOs – governments, foundations and individuals – to maintain and, if possible, to increase their funding.
