The Prawer Plan: Act Now
Israel's Knesset is still considering the infamous Prawer Plan - a blueprint for removing 40,000 Bedouin people from their ancestral homeland. Help us get as many signatures in opposition to Prawer before the Knesset committee finally votes: www.jvp.org/StopPrawer. We will deliver the signatures we collect to the Knesset.
As of December 10, news reports suggest that a current version of the Prawer Plan may now be scrapped, but all indications are that forced removal of Israeli Bedouin from their homes will not only continue but intensify. Further, Bedouin communities remain without basic services like water and electricity, while Jewish villages and homesteaders enjoy full access to public services.
