Jewish Protest in NYC Against Gaza Assault

Posted by libhom Saturday, January 10, 2009

From Mark Crispin Miller 1/8/09:

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY….

PLEASE JOIN US

Monday, January 12 at 5:30 P.M., in front of the Israeli Consulate, at 800 Second Avenue between 42nd and 43rd Streets, NYC

We are Jews who say “Not in Our Name” to the Israeli Government.

We ask you to stand with us as we call for:

- an immediate end to the massacre of the Palestinian people
- an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Israeli troops
- an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza
- immediate steps taken to end the Israeli occupation

We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, with our sisters and brothers in Israel who are bravely opposing the brutality of their government, and with all those around the world calling for justice and peace in the Middle East.

There will be no speakers at this event. We will stand together in silence, holding up signs reiterating the points above.

initiators of this call for action:

Renate Bridenthal
Nina Felshin
Sherry Gorelick
Jane Hirschmann
Carol Horowitz
Esther Kaplan
Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz
Abigail Levine
Alan Levine
Richard Levy
Donna Nevel
Michael Ratner
Amy Schoenwald
Len Weinglass
Dorothy Zellner

I recognize the name Michael Ratner. He is from the Center for Constitutional Rights and is on WBAI's Law and Disorder.

I think it is important to publicize these kind of events to oppose the war and to break down the view that being Jewish necessarily means supporting everything the rightist government there does. That is essential for healing and understanding.
