Rally to Close Guantanamo and Give it back to Cuba!

When: Saturday, February 24, 2018, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Where: Park Street Station • Tremont and Park Streets • Boston

Join us Saturday, February 24, 1 pm at Park Street to demand that the detention center at Guantanamo be shut down and that the Guantanamo Bay base be returned to Cuba. 

February 23 is the 115th anniversary of when the US seized Guantanamo from Cuba as a result of the provoked Spanish American war.  It has been a sore point in Cuba-US relations for a long time.  Our country should give Guantanamo back to Cuba and begin to heal our relationship with that brave nation, that has withstood the most brutal US embargo for decades, while managing to do good works around the world in spite of it.

Standing for Justice with Ahed Tamimi and Betty McCollum

Sixteen-year-old Ahed Tamimi and 63-year-old Rep. Betty McCollum don’t have much in common but they do share this: they have both courageously focused attention on Israel’s criminal behavior, and have been vilified for doing so.
Ahed was arrested in the middle of the night on December 19, when the Israeli army invaded her home in the tiny West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.  Three days earlier she had been videotaped by her mother Nariman slapping an Israeli soldier five seconds after the soldier slapped her and shortly after her 14-year-old cousin Mohammad had been seriously wounded by being shot point blank in the face by a rubber bullet.  The army had just fired tear gas at the family’s home, as it has done on numerous occasions during Ahed’s childhood.

UNITE TO MOBILIZE FOR PEACE, JUSTICE AND STOPPING THE WARS

Statement by United for Justice with Peace (Boston) 

UJP calls on the peace and antiwar community to support both local and national protests of the Trump presidency during inauguration week and the women's rights march in January.  We need to oppose racist appointments and many other actions and policies, and promote our alternative vision of peace and social justice.

The 2016 presidential campaign barely mentioned the wars abroad; both candidates had a pro-war stance disregarding considerable public skepticism about the wars.  The massive war economy and war budget is a major contributor to the income inequality that fueled the anger and discontent of much of the electorate, both Democratic and Republican.
