Stop the U.S.-Israeli War on the People of Gaza and Lebanon!
No More U.S. Tax Dollars to Occupy Palestine and to Destroy Lebanon!

4:30 - 5:30 pm
Peavey Plaza, 1111 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis

Israel's attacks on Gaza in response to the capture of an Israeli soldier constitute collective punishment of the entire Gaza population and have left close to 100 Palestinians dead, hundreds wounded and countless homeless and without water and electricity and in an unprecedented humanitarian disaster.

This is only the most recent step in Israel's brutal and unending, illegal occupation of Palestine. Israel's massive assault on Lebanon after the capture of two Israeli soldiers and killing of eight is also collective punishment of the people of Lebanon in clear violation of Geneva Conventions and international law.

Even as the U.S. blames Syria and Lebanon for arming Hezbollah, the U.S. government is the main military supplier, funder and protector of Israel and has expressed its open and complete support for Israel in its two-front war. Possibilities loom to expand the war to include attacks on Iran and Syria.

Join us in opposing these assaults on Gaza and Lebanon and the looming possibility of attacks expanded to include Iran and Syria.

Organized by the Coalition for Palestinian Rights

In preparation for tonight, I created this flyer about the Fall Actions against the War in Iraq:
