On July 17th, the war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the Israeli military has launched a ground invasion of Gaza. We have been in the streets every day in cities around the country. What is needed now is a massive march from Coast to Coast demanding an end to the genocide.

On July 16th, Israeli Defense Forces deliberately targeted a group of children playing soccer on a Gaza beach, killing four from the same family and maiming the others—another war crime committed against the Palestinian people.

WE DEMAND
Stop US Aid to the Apartheid State of Israel!
Free all Palestinian political prisoners!
End the collective punishment of Palestinians!
End colonial occupation of Palestine!
Stop the massacre in Gaza! End the blockade of Gaza!

Israel receives $4 billion in “aid” from the United States each year. This money is being used to commit war crimes against the Palestinian people in Gaza. We are demanding that all U.S aid to Israel be ended now! More than 200 people in Gaza have been killed and more than 1,500 have been wounded from Israeli bombs and missiles. This has to end!

July 12 San Francisco March says
"FREE PALESTINE"
Fifteen hundred people, mainly youth and students, marched through San Francisco today in opposition to genocidal Israeli airstrikes and military action against the Palestinian people. In a dramatic action, a dozen ANSWER San Francisco youth entered the Westfield shopping center on Market Street as the march passed, and unfurled a giant Palestinian flag from the atrium.

****************
WE NEED EVERYONE, YOUNG AND OLD TO JOIN US TO REACH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH THE TRUTH. The capitalist press is just promoting lies on the garbage TV and everywhere else. It is our tax dollars that is being used to maximize profits of the oil companies and munitions makers in the Middle East, with Israel as the foot soldier for US imperialism. At the July 12 demonstration, we had lots of children in strollers as well as lots of old people with canes. We are all generations, all colors, all religions and no religion, joining together to protest genocide and the theft of our tax dollars. There are 7 million people in the 9 counties of the SF Bay Area, and 856,000 people in San Francisco. We can certainly do better than 1500, although that was an excellent turnout for a pro-Palestinian demonstration, and better than most recent demonstrations for peace and justice. Bring your chants, your signs, your flyers and most importantly, yourself, to vote with your feet for the Palestinian liberation struggle so that, as we chant, FROM THE RIVER, TO THE SEA, PALESTINE WILL BE FREE!
