SOLIDARITY: TRISTAN & PALESTINE!
MON MARCH 16, 4pm
456 Montgomery St, SF
(@ Calif. St./Montgomery BART. 4 blocks
North of Market St. on Montgomery)
In 2004, the International Court of Justice found all parts of the wall being built on Palestinian land illegal and that these portions should be removed. Last month Israeli bulldozers uprooted the villages olive trees and militarily invaded the village. Four Ni’lin residents have been killed during demonstrations against the confiscation of their land, including ten year-old Ahmed Mousa.
Monday is also the 6th anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie. Tristan is a well-loved Bay Area community member, independent journalist and longtime frontline human rights, global justice/anti-capitalist, antiwar and environmental activist.
Friends of Tristan and Palestine

in my mind this isn't too much different than hearing BART cops say that the killing of Oscar Grant was an accident. you aim a device that can kill at someone at somebody and they get killed, it's not an accident
It's been said: If you point something that kills people at somebody and that somebody gets killed, it isn't a fucking accident. Don't try and make excuses for the swine, please.
Judo, you're a budding Zionist media spin artist. So tell me this: Do the Israeli police display this same model of teargas 'use' - firing the canisters, as though they were rubber bullets - directly at protest participants and continuing to fire as paramedics in clearly marked bright orange vests as they rushed to Tristan's aid, as they did in Ni'lin? Has even 1 Jewish religious fanatic received one in the head, stomach, or anyplace else on their body? I doubt it. And it's OK if someone is only hit in the stomach and suffers no serious injury. As long as that individual is not an Israeli Jew, it's all good, the Israeli police can fire as many tear gas canisters as they
want, all in the interest of peace.
And but for tear gas, the Israeli police would have to go as lambs to slaughter into raging crowd of Palestinian stone throwers? That's a laugh. They go in, not only armed to the teeth, but behind a wall of plexiglass sheilds, and often behind bulldozers, at least in the Palestinian communities. And a 10,000 to 1 freak accident? When someone else was hit in the stomach that same day? And lately there has been video footage posted about the Internet showing this has been a pretty regular occurrence around Ni'lin. And speaking of Ni'lin, let's not mention that the Jewish religious fanatic state known as Israel is doing their bald-faced land grab for the sake of their "peace wall", which is only a part of the Israeli state's plan to create what amount to Warsaw ghettoes in the Palestinian lands.
And you wonder why the Palestinians are pissed. Judo's so-called message of condolence to Tristan Anderson's loved ones is yet another manifestation of the unconscionable arrogance which is an essential part of Zionism. "Land without a people" was what the Zionists called the pre-Israel Middle East. Funny, it seems as if THERE WERE PEOPLE THERE, both Jewish and Arab, co-existing no less peacefully than any other 2 groups of human beings ever has. So to me, the Palestinian resistance is a brave, noble resistance to an imperialist action motivated by perceived racial\ethnic supremacy, and I support it wholeheartedly.
The Third Reich had its spin artists, too. Remember the film, "Triumph of the Will," and the propoganda films they made portraying how wonderful life was in the concentration camps.
And you'll never hear any of THIS from the Zionist spin artists.
Tristan was a colleague of mine at the tree sit in Berkeley, California, a friend not only to me, but many others here, to humanity and most of all to this Earth. What kind of godless nation has Israel become?
We all love Tristan. We all love the Palestinians. Live and let live, Israel! Love conquers all... even warmongers!
Know this: where you are few, we are many.
Where you speak for the rights of some members (not all members) of the Jewish community, we welcome all who want to see a better world and an end to tyranny.
We are not afraid of you when you come in the night.
We are not afraid when you Oscar Grant us or Almadou Diallo us or Elanor Bumpers us or Marcus Garvey us. We have seen a better way than what you promise.
We have seen what the fear does to us - what it makes us become.
And we are not afraid of you anymore.
The International Court of Justice ruled this wall building into the West Bank was illegal:
no reason or appeal will be heard as we are dealing with programed psychopaths.
The pain and horror the people of Palestine endure is nothing to these creatures.
Sanction is the only response.
We have a world of paper promises and a world of blood and soil.
One is supported by mountains of duplicity and denial and the other is a world people. And justice.
This poor little country is an American principle replete with nuclear arms which; with the SAMSON OPTION, threatens the entire world.
And has proxims of panic when its neighbors reach for nuclear power.
This poor little country has a cadre of dual citizens running the levers of American policy.
This little country is commiting a pogrom of genocide as defined by the Geneva Convention
Somehow the people of Palestine resist. A they have for many decades since Eichmann worked with the zionist founders to sieze this land.
What do you think is in those things? Onion juice? Pepper? These are chemical weapons!
