STOP US AID TO ISRAEL!
 


Rallies, marches and workshops against the war on Iraq are important opportunities to call for changing US policies that support Israel's occupation of Palestine. The US Campaign has produced a new flyer for use by peace activists. The flyer—called STOP FUNDING ISRAEL'S OCCUPATION—SAY 'NO' TO MORE US AID!—is available here in PDF format for downloading. Please download, copy and distribute this leaflet opposing Israel's request for an additional $14 billion in aid as well as the leaflet warning that Israel might use the war against Iraq to "transfer" Palestinians out of their homeland (link).

Major upcoming events include:

• The 18 January march and rally in DC organized by International ANSWER

• The 20 January conference for justice and peace in DC organized by Black Voices for Peace, a member organization of the US Campaign.

• The 15 February march and rally in New York organized by United for Peace. Check the United for Peace website for places and dates of other anti-war events.

WARN AGAINST TRANSFER!
 


Download and distribute this flyer warning against the danger of "transfer"
of Palestinians out of their homeland and calling for international
protection for the Palestinian people.

Call on the Bush Administration to:

1) Publicly warn the Israeli government against "transfer" of Palestinians - and that any move towards expulsion will be met with sanctions including a cut off of all forms of US aid.

2) Withdraw the US veto and support efforts in the UN Security Council to send international forces to protect Palestinians until Israel's military occupation ends.

The flyer is shorter than the handout in case you want to distribute just one page; the handout contains more information and can be copied back to back.

Seeing Clearly Through a Veil of Blood: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict from the Perspective of Human Rights and the Law

To understand the elements of a just peace, we need to draw on human rights and the law. Only the principles that underpin rights and the law can help us to see clearly through the heavy veil of blood that envelops the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
