DC on June 10: Say No to Occupation

The World Says No to the Israeli Occupation!
Washington DC, June 10

On the 40th anniversary of Israel's illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, join concerned Philadelphians in Washington, DC, June 10-11, 2007 for a protest, teach-in, and lobby day.

Join the Philadelphia Contingent!

A bus will be going to DC from Philly for the protest on June 10. We will leave at 9:30am from the parking lot next to the A Space at 4722 Baltimore. We will return that evening.

Bus tickets cost $25-$50 sliding scale.
You MUST buy your ticket ahead of time. No ticket sales will be made the day of the event.

Tickets are available:

  • Online at
  • Robins Books, 108 S. 13th Street
  • Bindlestiff Books, 4530 Baltimore Ave
  • The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, 1213 Race Street
  • The Wooden Shoe Bookstore, 508 S. 5th Street
Right now, billions of dollars each year go from U.S. taxpayers to the Israeli military, funding the destruction of Palestinian homes, agriculture, and infrastructure. At the same time, people in the U.S. -- including in Philadelphia -- face crises around health-care, housing, and education. Federal taxes need to come home to support our cities instead of a militarized, racist foreign policy in Palestine, Iraq, and around the world.

We in the United States have a special obligation to protest Israel's illegal military occupation because it is our government that provides Israel with the uncritical military, economic, diplomatic, and corporate support that it needs to sustain and expand its control of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.

And Israel's human rights violations of the Palestinian people are not limited to the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Both in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Palestinians are subjected to a system of apartheid. Inside Israel, Palestinian citizens are discriminated against and cannot exercise their full rights as citizens. And Israel continues to deny Palestinian refugees, who were forcibly exiled from their homeland during Israel's establishment, their internationally guaranteed right of return.
