Demonstrations at the Israeli Consulate, Feinstein's office, etc., are basically symbolic. On the other hand, boisterous demos at retail businesses whose owners give material aid to Israeli terrorism can actually cause them MONEY!

Has anybody compiled any kind of list of such businesses? If so, please post it, including verifiable info about each entity's connections to terrorism.
FIRST, THANK YOU FOR SUCH A QUICK RESPONSE DURING THIS HOLIDAY-VACATION SEASON WITH SO MANY PICKETLINES. Many of us can easily remember when so many protests of US-Israel imperialism was simply not possible; our peace movement has grown in size, strength and political perspective.

All picketlines are symbolic. The problem is not "Zionist-owned businesses" (that borders on anti-Semitism too and does not teach people the source of the problem), but US imperialism, promoted by the entire Democratic and Republican Parties, promoting their warmongering puppet, Israel, a US military base to protect US oil profits in the Middle East. You will notice that Obama has "no comment" on this terrible massacre. THERE IS NO GREATER MATERIAL AID TO ISRAEL THAN THE US TREASURY, to the tune of $6 billion a year from the US taxpayers to the 4th largest US military power in the world, Israel, whining about some comparatively minor missile attacks which could be ended immediately if Israel would, for starters: (1) Stop the attacks on Gaza; (2) Stop the genocidal blockade of Gaza; (3) Stop the 60 year occupation of Palestine so that all of Palestine can be a secular society with no US military aid. The next time there is a protest of Israel's genocidal actions, please include a picketline of the San Francisco Democratic Party at 100 McAllister and the local Republican Party at 110 Pacific Ave, and this should be encouraged nationwide as they have their party machines in every state and most counties.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
