Join Us on Saturday to March on Wall Street!

April 4th, 2009

As we approach the 42nd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous Riverside Church speech “Beyond Vietnam,” the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation calls on all of its member groups and individual supporters to join us and

United for Peace and Justice this Saturday, April 4 to protest U.S. spending on wars and occupations and call for a new economy based on our country’s unmet domestic needs.

Over the next ten years, the United States is scheduled to provide Israel with $30 billion in military aid to maintain its illegal occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip, and to commit human rights abuses against Palestinians living under this military occupation. During the Bush Administration, Israel killed more than 3,000 innocent Palestinian civilians who took no part in hostilities, often with U.S. weapons.

This march is a great opportunity for us to reach out to like-minded people and get them to join with us in our campaign to challenge U.S. military aid to Israel. Help us organize at this march!
