Build a bypass road on Sproul Plaza
Monday, November 29th 2004 12-2 pm
Bypass roads are part of Israelís systematic efforts to colonize all of historic Palestine and to eviscerate a Palestinian identity all together. Since it began its colonization of Palestinian lands in 1948, Israel has maintained a policy of land confiscation, displacement of indigenous populations, and the erasure of Palestinian history. Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department, said:
"Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them." (Israel: an Apartheid State , Uri Davis, p.5)
On Monday, November 29, 2004, the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, pro-Palestinian students at UC Berkeley will erect a bypass road through Sproul Plaza. Come out and support these students and their efforts to urge the UC Regents to DIVEST FROM ISRAEL. On the 27th anniversary of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, this is our message:
Divest from Israel and invest in the education of people of color!
