On July 17, 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 16, 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 THAT

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!

The July 26 action is being co-sponsored by many organizations. Contact the ANSWER Coalition for more info, to volunteer, or to endorse: answer [at] answersf.org, 415-821-6545

End Israel's War on the Palestinian People!

Since Israel launched its genocidal campaign against the Palestinian people almost two weeks ago, more than 600 people have been killed. Solidarity protests from all over the world have poured into the streets to demand an end to the massacre in Gaza. From South Africa to France, from Chile to Venezuela, the world is behind Palestine. Yesterday, in Chicago, more than 10,000 people demanded that the "US stop aid to Israel."

In San Francisco, [on July 20, 2014] an energized crowd of over 6,000 people flooded and shut down Market St. This coming Saturday, July 26th, as Israel continues to massacre Palestinians and the Palestinian resistance fights back, the Bay Area is mobilizing to show its support for justice and humanity.

WE DEMAND:

Stop the massacre in Gaza!
End the blockade of Gaza!
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!
The SF Bay Area says NO to Zionism!
