6th Rachel Corrie Banner Demo
Monday, November 17, 2003
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
1301 Clay Street @ 12th in Oakland City Center in front of the Federal Building where Congresswoman Barbara Lee's office is.
The 6th Rachel Corrie Banner Demo will be on the 17th instead of the 16th of Nov. since we want to have the demonstration this month in front of Cong. Barbara Lee's office on a Monday, instead of a Sunday. Although Cong. Lee is better than the average politician on the Middle East, she still has congratulated Sharon twice each time he was elected and she voted for the Syria Accountability Act. She often sits on the fence when it comes to the current US unconditional support of apartheid Israel so, we the people need to let her know that we find this unacceptable and demand an end to US support of apartheid Israel until it becomes a true democracy for all regardless of religion, race or sex, including for all the Palestinian refugees who must be allowed their right to return. Rachel Corrie was deliberately bulldozed to death by an Israel soldier in the Gaza Strip on March 16, 2003 while defending a Palestinian family's home from being demolished.
