Military Aid to Israel: Can Minnesota Afford It?
Saturday, November 6, 4:00 pm
300 South 6th St., Minneapolis
"Occupy Minnesota," The People's Plaza

The United States is scheduled to give $30 billion of taxpayer money for weapons to Israel between 2009 and 2018.  Can Minnesotans afford this military aid to Israel?  We'll examine the financial, legal, political, and moral implications of this policy and will organize to end military aid to Israel and redirect that money to unmet needs in our communities.

Sponsored by Minnesota Break the Bonds, a state-wide campaign working for divestment from Israel on a state-level.
