NYC queers cry “Foul” & “Tacky!” to pinkwashing of Israel’s bloody occupation
by Queers for Palestine
Thirty queers and supporters gathered at the Israeli Consulate in Manhattan this evening to protest outside the launch party for the Jewish National Fund’s (JNF) new gay fundraising effort. The JNF had changed the event location to the Consulate this afternoon after learning that picketers would be present at the original venue. “We protested tonight to tell the JNF that they cannot hide from queers any more than they can hide the remains of Palestinian villages by planting forests on top of them,” said protester Hannah Mermelstein.
