Bay Area Women in Black's annual Black Friday March and Vigil calls for a boycott of products whose sale supports the cruel and illegal occupation of Palestine. Fliers and signs offer the rationale for the boycott and urge the end of U.S. military aid to the State of Israel. This is a non-violent event.
On the biggest shopping day of the year in the U.S., Bay Area Women in Black will once again show how profits from the sale of certain items and participation by businesses and cultural groups in events sponsored by the State of Israel are used to impose illegal and cruel occupation and colonialism on the people of Palestine.
Please join our non-violent march and vigil from the Powell Street BART Station to Union Square. Fliers and signs will show how specific businesses promote illegal occupation and daily living conditions called "worse than apartheid" by Bishop Desmond Tutu, conditions supported by U.S. tax dollars. Prepare to participate in the singing of BDS-themed "anti-carols". Drums and banners welcome.
Please dress in black and gather on Friday, Nov. 29, at the Powell Street BART station at 11:45 for a 12:00 PM march to Union Square, returning to BART by 1 PM. The San Francisco Police Department will escort us.
