This Sunday, December 3rd, from 10am - 1pm, members of several local and national peace groups will hold a "Dismantle AIPAC!" demonstration outside of the Radisson Hotel, 500 Leisure Ln, in Sacramento. That's where AIPAC will host an annual fundraising lunch, and many state political leaders are expected to attend. As they enter the parking lots, we'll be there to greet them with our signs and displays.
AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) promotes terrorism, militarism, occupation, and disregard for human rights. During the terrible violence that Israel inflicted upon Lebanon last summer, AIPAC worked frantically to prevent a ceasefire. Israel's murderous rampage left over a thousand Lebanese civilians dead. Most were children. While the entire international community begged Israel to stop, AIPAC urged the U.S. to rush more bombs to Israel--bombs that destroyed entire Lebanese cities. Over a million unexploded cluster bombs still litter the residential areas throughout Lebanon. Even now, on a daily basis, Lebanese children are killed or lose limbs because cluster bombs explode from the vibrations of footsteps.
AIPAC is the key lobby group that promotes the sale of weapons to Israel that are routinely used against Palestinian civilians. It also heavily lobbied Congress to support the Annexation Wall that surrounded (and stole) Palestinian territory.
AIPAC played a key role in fomenting support for the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and it's now playing a key role in supporting a future military strike against the people of Iran. AIPAC describes itself as the most influential lobby affecting the U.S. relationship with Israel. It has been a consistent supporter of Israel's acts of terrorism and Bush’s belligerent and disastrous policies in the Middle East.
For all of these reasons, and more, please join us at Radisson this Sunday to help DISMANTLE AIPAC!
