Report an incident

A variety of tactics is being used to silence those who support Palestinian rights: from smear campaigns falsely accusing of antisemitism or ties to terrorism, to the implementation of restrictive policies.

The ELSC is determined to expose these tactics and challenge them through legal actions. The reported incidents are compiled in a database that enable drawing the broader picture of the attacks faced by Palestinian rights defenders. The database will be included in our website next year. If you believe you, your group, NGO, association, foundation or otherwise has been intimidated, slandered, censored or banned from speaking out or carrying out solidarity actions, or if you have questions about your rights please complete the incident form below.

Where an incident falls within our scope of support, one of our legal researchers will contact you within a few business days of receipt. We reserve the right to refuse support where incidents do not fall within our scope, mandate or values. No legal obligations can be derived from this form or future contact from the ELSC.
