Cease Fire in Palestine, 5/20/21
by Not One Nickel, Not One Dime
Thursday May 20th, 2021 7:41 PM
After 11 horrifying days of US/Israel war crimes against Palestine, the Palestinians won a cease fire, with no demands met, but the toll tells the story: In Gaza: 230 dead including 64 children, 1710 injured, 75,000 homeless, over 500 homes destroyed.

In the West Bank and East Jerusalem, 25 dead including 4 children, 6,309 injured.

Historic Palestine suffered the least while Nazi Yahoo's popularity soared: 12 dead including 2 children, 796 injured.

There is of course an anti-draft and peace movement in Historic Palestine with Israelis refusing to join the military, but that is not enough. Sitting here in the belly of the beast, the USA, we have to stop the flow of our tax dollars in the form of weapons and all other means. We had about 100,000 people across the USA protesting US/Israeli war crimes on May 15-16, 2021, with short notice of these demonstrations. See https://www.liberationnews.org/nakba-73-actions-in-75-us-cities-remember-the-palestinian-catastrophe-of-1948/ and there were 250,000 in Detroit on May 18, 2021.

The Palestinians united with a 1 day general strike, the first since 1936, causing the loss of millions of dollars worth of business to the Zionists who hire Palestinian workers, mainly in the construction business. The general strike certainly was water on the fiery rhetoric of the Zionists, increasing support for a cease fire.

From: https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/israel-palestinian-strike-citizens-fired-participating 5/19/21
"The general strike brought some sectors of the Israeli economy to a standstill on Tuesday - notably construction and delivery services, as hundreds of Palestinian truck and transportation drivers or crane operators went on strike. "

The struggle continues:
