As Part of our March Month of Action, US Campaign member groups are joining others around the world in organizing educational events and protest actions as part of the 6th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week.
Find out how to get involved with the 6th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week. This week of action kicks off our March Month of Action, which includes a Campus BDS Training Day, Grassroots Advocacy Training and Lobby Day, Rachel Corrie Remembrance Day, and Land Day.
Palestinian anti-apartheid activists and BDS campaigners Jamal Juma' and Mohammad Othman have been released after a successful campaign of international civil society pressure on Israel! However, Abdallah Abu Rahmah, a leader of nonviolent protests in the village of Bil'in, along with many others, remain unjustly imprisoned by the Israeli military. Take action to get the United States to demand the release of Palestinian leaders of grassroots nonviolent resistance against Israeli occupation and apartheid.
There are several ways to stand against settlement growth, including targeting corporations that profit from settlement expansion and asking the NY Mets to cancel the Hebron Fund's annual NYC fundraising dinner.
On March 13, 2009, U.S. citizen Tristan Anderson was critically injured when he was shot in the head by a high-velocity tear gas canister fired by the Israeli army. Organizations and individuals have planned vigils and actions today to commemorate Rachel Corrie. Join these events and call for justice and accountability for all innocent victims of Israeli occupation.
The mainstream media does not print what is going on in Israel and Palestine. Blogging can be a very effective way to get around this blockade of the truth. If many people are blogging on many different sites on a similar subject and point of view, it can have a ripple effect.
Find out more about the life of U.S. peace activist, Rachel Corrie who was killed by the Israeli military while nonviolently trying to prevent home demolitions in the Gaza Strip. Take action to continue Rachel's work.
The US Campaign is excited to update you on our latest progress educating Americans about the apartheid policies in Israel and Palestine, our recent citizen peace delegation to Israel, Jerusalem, and the West Bank - cosponsored by Interfaith Peace Builders - AND our upcoming national speaking tour, Separate Is Never Equal: stories from South Africa and Palestine.
