Solidarity with Barcelona Cutting Ties with Apartheid
Dear Members and Friends:
Since Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau responded to citizen demands by committing to suspend twinning relations with Tel Aviv and Israel until Israeli authorities end apartheid against the Palestinian people, she has suffered a backlash of defamation. Mayor Colau and Barcelona need your solidarity for this courageous move to meet the city’s extraterritorial human rights obligations. The Barcelona City Council will vote on the decision on 24 February 2023.
