Divestment
"Non violence is a powerful and just weapon," Rev. Martin Luther King wrote forty years ago in his essay Why We Canít Wait. "It is a weapon unique in history, which cuts without wounding . . . It is a sword that heals."" Now is the time for us to proclaim that right is on the side of the beleaguered Presbyterian Church and committed activists who have worked to exert international pressure on Israel as occupier. For the sake of the people of Palestine and Israel and a world in which military power does not always trump justice, we must work together to forge the divestment movement into Dr. Kingís healing sword.

Direct Action: It Gets Your Message Heard
April 6th, 2005
A direct action is a public, non-violent exercise of power to draw attention to injustice. It is an effective way to get your message heard, especially if people have come to accept injustice as routine. Direct action empowers by drawing new people into the movement. This fact sheet gives examples of direct action by activists working to end the illegal Israeli military occupation of Palestine. Their actions target the Israeli government, United States policies that support occupation, and multinational corporations that help sustain occupation.
