Save Masafer Yatta

Dear Representative,

As your constituent, I am reaching out to you because I am deeply concerned about the plans of the Israeli military to ethnically cleanse the villages of Masafer Yatta and their attacks on human rights organizers in the area.

Most recently, the Israeli military issued demolition orders on the Youth of Sumud Guest House and Community Center in Atuwani. Sami Huraini of Youth of Sumud was recently awarded the Front Line Defenders Award for his nonviolent organizing efforts in response to Israeli settler violence.

I need you to make two calls, right now, to ensure that the Israeli government doesn’t destroy the Youth of Sumud Guest House and Community Center.

The fix is not hard: call the Government of Israel on my behalf and ask them to

  1. Place an injunction against demolition on the Youth of Sumud Guest House and Community Center.

  2. Stop targeting human rights organizers through arbitrary demolition orders, targeted arrests, and night raids of vulnerable communities.

Additionally, call and urge the U.S. State Department or the Global Affairs Canada

  1. Pressure the Israeli Civil Administration - the body responsible for issuing demolition orders and executing demolitions - to rescind the demolition orders.

If you haven’t scheduled a Zoom-briefing with Youth of Sumud and community organizers in Masafer Yatta, please email Please do so as soon as you can - I’ll do my best to attend.

Meanwhile, please take immediate action to protect the facilities of Youth of Sumud and the communities of Masafer Yatta on my behalf.  

I look forward to your reply.
