Gaza March Organizers Discuss U.S. Military Aid, Boycott, Divestment

On July 14, 2009 200 people gathered at the Brecht Forum in New York City to hear members of US Campaign member group Code Pink's June delegation to Gaza report on what they had seen and heard. Additionally, others spoke to the need to accelerate activity in support of the people of Gaza. This included growing support for a Boycott-Disinvestment-Sactions campaign and the building of a massive march in December 2009, in Gaza, of thousands of people from the U.S. in opposition to Israel's blockade and siege. During the question and answer session, audience members raised important points and questions about the need to challenge U.S. military aid to Israel and to build a national movement for boycott and divestment. You can watch video of the session below, and see video of the speakers at the Palestine Video "vlog": Want to join the conversation about how to build a national movement dedicated to challenging U.S. military aid and boycotting and divesting from Israel's apartheid practices?
