Mon Mar 14 2011 Actions in Chicago, Bay Area, Remember Murdered Palestinian Youth
“Justice for Mehdi Aby Ayyash" in Berkeley Responding to an international call to action, on March 10th Palestinian solidarity activists in Chicago renamed street signs on downtown street corners commemorating a Palestinian youth killed two years ago by the Israeli military. The activists used ladders just as morning rush hour commuters were starting to arrive in Chicago’s loop, and replaced street signs that read “Honorary Ben Gurion Way” with “Honorary Mehdi Abu Ayyash Way.” On March 9th, activists in Berkeley unfurled a large banner over the highway reading, “Justice for Mehdi Aby Ayyash,” as part of the international events planned. More actions are expected to take place in the coming weeks in different locations around the world.

Mehdi Abu Ayyash, aged 17, from Beit Ommar, was shot in the head by Israeli Forces on March 4th, 2009 and died of his injuries several months later. A second youth from the same village, Yousef Ikhlyal, aged 17, was shot in the head by rampaging Israeli settlers on January 28th, 2011. To date, none of the soldiers responsible for killing Mehdi Aby Ayyash, nor the settlers responsible for killing Yousef Ikhlyal, have been brought to justice by the State of Israel.
