All Out for Rapha Rally at UCB

(Berkeley, May 7) - President Biden has delivered a speech on Holocaust Remembrance Day. The one perpetrated by Nazi Germany, not the one currently being perpetrated by Israel's fascists. He has insulted the memory of Hitlers holocaust victims by labeling world wide revulsion at Israels crimes against humanity as antisemitism.

Continuing its Holocaust, Israel has now attacked the starving Palestinians in Rapha that had to flee their bombed out homes.

The encampment at UCB has called for "All Out for Rapha" and thousands have responded by rallying in from Sproul Hall, now relabeled "Palestine Plaza."

The encampment has expanded. There is now a UCB alumnae encampment established by thousands of alumnae who have sworn to stop donations until the University divests from Israel.

A union encampment was also being established on this fifteenth day of the encampment

Student and faculty made speeches among the continuing shouting of slogans that demand and proclaim Palestinian liberation.

With perhaps a glimmer of decency, Biden has made a couple of low key "pauses" in some of its massive arms deliveries to Israel. These will no doubt be labeled as the antisemitism which somehow magically exploded on October seventh. As another insult to the memory of the victims of Hitler's crimes, the labeling of opposition to Israeli fascism as antisemitism is robbing real antisemitism of its terrible meaning, and making it almost respectable.

The conscience of young people worldwide awakes. An action as Berkeley High School is scheduled for today.

A message of Solidarity to the current generation of student Peace activists, who are carrying on the fine tradition of the1960s & '70s anti-Imperialist student activists on UCB campus & across the North Anerican continent(I was myself a proud member of that generation, and continue to be a dedicated anti-US Militarism advocate!)

The self-appointed "World Policeman" by the Wall Street-Pentagon ruling cabal is facing an existential crisis of influence and credibility across the entire Planet(notice US militants are being thrown out in Africa, soon in Iraq and maybe even expelled from Syria in short order! Even the proxy wars in both Ukraine and Israel are facing hurricane-like headwinds. And now, with the rising massive domestic public revulsion--led courageously by tens of thousands of young student activists--against the faltering NeoCon/NeoLib narrative of Uncle Sam defending "free world democracy"(with 800+ overseas military bases?!), the US ruling class is resorting to outright violent repression against the resurgent student movement against Yankee global domination. But history is not on the ruling cabal's side; the imagined " end of history "(A la Fukuyama) will soon turn out the lights on Western Imperialism! ...

Peace, Solidarity and Imua(forward)!
