Oak Park, IL: On Tax Day - End Military Aid to Israel!
Thursday, April 15th 2010 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Increasing numbers of American taxpayers are outraged at spending billions of dollars in U.S. aid to support Israel's occupation of Palestine and its cruel siege of Gaza. We know that Palestinians and Israelis will never be able to live in peace and with security as long as our government supports these policies in our name and with our money.
Join us and other activists in cities and towns nationwide on Tax Day, April 15, to educate our neighbors and to demand of President Obama and our elected officials:
Stop military aid to Israel! $30 billion supports occupation and war.
End the occupation!
Stop the siege of Gaza!

The Chicago Hearing is modeled after a Congressional hearing and will be webcast live at www.chicagohearing.org. The event will bring together witnesses to tell seldom-heard stories from Israel-Palestine that raise critical questions about the effects of U.S. policies in the region.
Israeli, Palestinian and American witnesses will testify to lives lost, freedoms denied and property destroyed by Israeli policies buttressed by U.S. aid and support. The witnesses will testify to the collateral effects of U.S. policies toward Israel.
A Listener Panel of public officials, academics and religious leaders will ask questions and make comments following the testimony. The Hearing will center on three topics: Property Rights; Freedom of Movement, Association and Speech; and Military Aid and Armaments.
Free and open to the public.
