Rally Calling for an End to U.S. Aid to Apartheid Israel
Wednesday, January 15, 2003
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Americans for Justice in Palestine-Israel
1301 Clay Street between 12th & 14th St. in front of Oakland's Federal Building where Congresswoman Barbara Lee's office is.
In response to the latest outrageous request for additional aid from Israel for $14 BILLION more from our U.S. government (using our tax dollars!) we are staging a Rally / Teach-In urging Congresswoman Barbara Lee to JUST SAY NO! She is probably already sympathetic to our cause however she must be made aware of how her constituents, we the people, feel. The main theme is NO U.S. AID TO APARTHEID ISRAEL and what better day to do this than on Martin Luther King's real birthday, Jan. 15. If you can, bring signs such as "Israel wants $14 BILLION more of our tax dollars! Just say NO!" "No more US tax dollars for Israel's Ethnic Cleansing of the Palestinians" , "NO MORE U.S. AID TO APARTHEID ISRAEL" etc. Also there will be a petition to sign, which will be copied and sent out to our leaders. If you have literature to hand out to help educate the public on this issue, please bring it, because this is also a teach-in. A good article to print out and make copies of is at : http://www.alhewar.com/Curtiss.html where you'll find "The Cost of Israel to the American People". If you have a kaffiyeh, please wear it. You can buy them at Revolution Books in Berkely, or at the imports store on Mission St. at 26th St. in San Francisco. Please tell your friends and colleagues about this important rally/ teach-in---- see you there!
