Santa Cruz Against Israeli Occupation Forces

If you live in Santa Cruz County, please join us at the Clock Tower at 5pm tomorrow to protest Israel’s attack on Gaza. As of today the death count in Gaza was 330; 76 children and 36 women. Israel’s actions in Gaza are making it clear Operation Protective Edge is not about national defense, but about the continuation of it’s Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. Not only that but it’s politicians are explicitly stating Israel’s intent; Moshe Feiglin has called for the forced removal of Palestinians from Gaza and expressed his desire to have Gaza repopulated with Jews; and Ayelet Shaked has called for the genocide of Palestinians on her facebook page.

Join the event on Facebook and Invite others:

 The United States is currently overlooking and funding the atrocities taking place in Gaza. It feels hopeless but there is a lot that can be done:

Tell your elected officials that you do not want your tax money supporting the destruction of the Palestinian people.

Call the White House and tell them you are outraged. (202) 465-1111

Speak with your dollars and take part in the BDS Movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanction).

…And get out and protest! Join the world in condemning Israel.
