WEDNESDAY, July 30

Ashmont T-Station

 

Dear Friends,

Many of you have read about or participated in protests against the Israeli attack on Gaza in Copley Square and downtown Boston.  Now it’s time to bring the message to our neighborhoods!

 

We had a successful standout at Roxbury Crossing on Saturday. Please join members of DORCHESTER PEOPLE FOR PEACE and local residents this Wednesday at Ashmont Station.

 

(This action will go on whether or not a cease-fire is declared because ending the siege of Gaza is what humanity requires.)

 

And whether you can come or not please make calls to Washington demanding an end to this massacre and blockade.

 

Israel has created a massive humanitarian disaster in Gaza.  At least 1000 Palestinians have been killed and thousands more injured.  According to the UN, three-quarters of the dead are civilians, including hundreds of children and women.  Tens of thousands have been made homeless.

 

Yet our Congress has unanimously passed resolutions blaming only the victims and calling the firing of ineffective mortars and rockets from Gaza “an unprovoked attack” on Israel.  This ignores decades of Israeli Occupation and a brutal 8-year Israeli siege of Gaza that has left 1.8 million Palestinians penned up and blockaded in an area only slightly larger than the city of Boston, with no place to run, no place to hide from Israeli bombs.

 

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE - and Senators Markey and Warren - to say that this is unacceptable!  Israel must be held accountable and our government should stop supplying the $billions, the planes and the bombs it is using to destroy Gaza.

 

TELL THE US STATE DEPT to demand the bombing stop and the Israeli blockade of Gaza ended!
