Criminalizing Dissent and Palestine Solidarity

From the

By Ursula Rozum

The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the US unleashed a wave of protests and demonstrations. In response to the outpouring of dissent, anti-protest bills have been introduced in state legislatures. Many states are drafting bills to increase fines and jail sentences for protesters obstructing traffic (Minnesota, Washington, South Dakota, Indiana, Florida, Mississippi, Iowa), trespassing on infrastructure such as railways and pipelines (Colorado , Oklahoma), wearing masks (Missouri), or refusing to leave an “unlawful protest” (Virginia).

Boycott HP: Technology of Israeli Apartheid

Wed, Apr 19, 2017 6:30pm - 8:30pm
University United Methodist Church 1085 E. Genesee St. Syracuse, NY 13210

At a time when Congress is increasing military aid to Israel to the tune of $3.8 billion annually and the Trump administration is supporting the expansion of illegal settlements, human rights activists MUST use all the tactics at our disposal to organize and build a movement for justice.

 

Two decades ago, the international boycott of firms that supported the apartheid South African regime played an important role in overturning that racist regime. It's time to do it again as part of our efforts to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Palestinian Human Rights Defender Facing Trial in Israeli Military Court

From the

by Ariel Gold

Human rights activists are under attack in Israel/Palestine. On October 21, 2016, Israeli Knesset member David Bitan called for Hagai El-Ad, executive director of the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem, to have his citizenship revoked after his testimony before the United Nations Security Council criticizing the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. In March, 2016 Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon accused Breaking the Silence, an Israeli veteran’s organization that collects and publishes testimony from Israeli soldiers, of treason.
