No More Billions for Israel’s Crimes, Fund OUR Needs in These Hard Times

Mon November 29 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EST

International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People

Monday, November 29th

12:30-2:00 pm


Meet at Downtown Crossing at 12:30 for a standout and a few speeches and then a march to the JFK building at 1:15. We’ll end at 2:00.

Join us on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People to express our solidarity with Palestinians and to let our Senators know that we are tired of of paying for Israel’s colonizing occupation and theft of the Palestinian people’s land and lives.

Massachusetts taxpayers give Israel $130 million annually as part of the $3.8 billion the US government gives to Israel for the funding of its colonizing of Palestinian lives and homeland. As you know, these dollars, and now a possible EXTRA $1 billion for the “Iron Dome” program, go to Israel. Israel returns it to the US weapons manufacturers, including Raytheon in MA, whose weapons are returned to the apartheid state.

We want that money back to fund desperately needed housing, education, daycare, healthcare, climate change resiliency and much more right in Massachusetts!

We’ll hear speakers from groups that can find better uses for the money, we’ll march to the JFK building to deliver our letter to Senators Markey and Warren. BABAM will lighten our step with music in the streets!

COME JOIN US AND LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!

Thank you again for your attention and we hope to see you there!

Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine,  along with folks from Jewish Voice for Peace-Action/Boston, Massachusetts Peace Action, BDS Boston, Boston Palestine Solidarity Community
