SHOULD AN ATTACK OCCUR:

II.     Make phone calls to those above to express your outrage.

III.     Contact local media to express your outrage.

IV.     Join a protest being organized near you: San Francisco, San Jose or Santa Rosa. Or organize your own protest in your area. Please bring signs and Palestinian flags.

SAN FRANCISCO:
*On the day following an attack* (or boarding) of any ship in the Freedom
 Flotilla 2- Stay Human, we invite all people of conscience to gather outside
 the *Israeli Consulate at 456 Montgomery St., #2100. San Francisco, Ca 94104
 at 5:00 pm*.

SAN JOSE:
In San Jose: gather outside the *Dr Martin Luther King Jr Library (San Jose Public Library) at 150 East San Fernando Street, San Jose, CA 95112 at 5:00 pm

SANTA ROSA:
If Israel responds with violence - as they did last time — there will be a peaceful protest in Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa from 6:00 to 7:00 the evening of the incident.


 We also ask that Palestine solidarity groups and peace and justice groups spread this message across their membership through listservs, phone calls, and other forms of social media. It is of the utmost importance that this event has a large attendance; international pressure — especially from the United States — is a critical factor in preventing Israel from acting with impunity towards humanitarian activists. We all need to be prepared to act on short notice.

Call right now as they all have voice mail so you can leave a message at any time. The State Department is putting our calls on a voice mail message system. All representatives have local numbers with voice mail. Night rates apply to 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., local time, and evening rates are 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. local time. The president's switchboard number only takes messages from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., DC time, which is 3 hours later than the Pacific coast. Feinstein's local office may not take messages so you will have to call her DC number. This time, unlike the usual, Feinstein's live person is sitting there listening instead of switching you to voice mail or hanging up. Here are some talking points:
1. I call as an American citizen and ___________ (Holocaust family member, voter of __________ state or city, and the like.)
2. I demand that you support the Gaza Freedom Flotilla
3. I demand that you tell your puppet Israel to lift the illegal blockade of Gaza.
4. The Zionists do not speak for the entire Jewish community.
5. The Zionists do not speak for me.
6. All Americans can now see that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans which will help build the socialist and Green parties, the only parties worth voting for.
7. Support the Gaza Freedom Flotilla! Lift the blockade of Gaza! No US tax dollars to Israel! End the 63 year occupation of Palestine!
GET ON THE PHONE RIGHT NOW SO THAT THE BOATS MAY LEAVE GREECE TODAY. WE ARE ALL THE GAZA FREEDOM FLOTILLA. THE PHONE BRIGADE IS JUST AS MUCH A PART OF THIS EFFORT AS THE PEOPLE ON THE BOATS.
