Palestine Bannering & Flyering
Saturday, May 13th @ 1pm @ Hennepin & Lagoon in Minneapolis
Help us get the word out about our call in day against US aid to Israel on Al Nakba (5/15). We will need folks to hold up the banner and to pass out flyers to cars and pedestrians.
**********************
May 15, 1948 marked the establishment of the state of Israel on Palestinian land. This day is marked as “Al Nakba”, Arabic for “The Catastrophe”. During the 1948 war, at least 750,000 Palestinian men, women, and children were ruthlessly attacked, massacred, and driven from their homes into refugee camps and have never been allowed to return. This is in violation of international law! Since 1948, Israel has received more than $234 billion in U.S. aid to occupy Palestine. This does not include the $38 billion that Israel will receive in the next 10 years. 2017 marks 69 years of U.S.-backed Israeli occupation. Show your solidarity with Palestine on Al-Nakba! Say NO to U.S. aid to Israel! Organized by the Anti-War Committee.
