"Shame on Israel" demonstration scheduled for August 4

Santa Cruz, CA- On Friday, August 4th 5-6pm -
Advocates of peace and justice will gather across the
street from the clocktower in downtown Santa Cruz
(Front/Pacific) to denounce Israeli attacks on Lebanon
and Palestine. After weeks of bombing Lebanese cities
and Palestinian refugee camps, the results are
hundreds of dead civilians, thousands of refugees, and
the destruction of the cultured, democratic Lebanese
nation. Despite international outcry, Israel, in
cahoots with the United States continues to massacre
civilians through the use of banned chemical weapons
such as white phosphorous and conventional weapons
such as cluster bombs.

The disproportionate use of violence by the Israeli
government against the civilian populations of
Palestine and Lebanon in light of 3 Israeli soldiers
being captured cannot be justified in any moral or
military terms. Indeed, as reported on Democracy Now,
the invasion of Lebanon was planned months ago in
order to destroy Hezbollah's military capabilities.
And while the corporate media has portrayed the
capture of 3 Israeli soldiers as the catalyst for the
bombing, it must be remembered that Israel is holding
many thousands (estimates are 5,000-10,000) of
Palestinians and Lebanese without charge and has
repeatedly attacked Arab civilians.

We call on everyone who believes in peace to come out
and call for an immediate cease fire and Israel's
immediate withdrawal from Lebanon and Palestine.

WAR IS TERRORISM. STOP THE BOMBING!
