WHY YOU WANT TO BE THERE:
On October 30th, 2014, the "non-profit" organization Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) will host a fundraiser on the Boston Waterfront, featuring Israel's Ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer. The IDF is the 4th largest army in the world, and is one of the world's best financed, brutal occupying military organizations. It has slaughtered thousands of innocent Palestinians and is most recently responsible for the massacre of over 2,000 people in the world’s largest open-air prison: Gaza.
With revenue and assets in the millions, FIDF materially supports this slaughter - along with the expansion of military operations and apartheid on Palestinian lands - by sending money to Israeli soldiers and sponsoring trips for Americans to visit Israeli bases.Filed under:
|Youth filled the streets at People's Climate March|
A huge march of 300,000 people wound through Manhattan's midtown on the westside on Sept. 21 demanding urgent and substantive action to deal with global warming. Peace activists from all over Massachusetts joined in, pointing to the overlap in issues and common cause. Organized labor also held a pre-march rally as did faith communities, and convergence of issues was a theme of the day. Hopefully UN General Secretary Ban Xi-Moon, who also marched, will feel lots of support from the people as he tries to pressure reluctant goverments such as the USA into action.
Children living under the Israeli occupation of West Bank and Gaza are exposed to violence as a way of life. They are imprisoned, scarred or disabled by war injuries and devastation. Many have been robbed of their childhood. Speakers include Dr. Mads Gilbert; Omar Barghouti, BDS; Ivan Karakashian, Defence for Children International; Sahar Vardi and concerned therapists and peace activists. Come and learn more.
Registration: $25.00, Students $10.00

Here we go again -- has the US government learned nothing from the disastrous Iraq war? The brutal US intervention and occupation of Iraq destroyed Iraqi society and is the principal cause leading to the current violence and chaos. Why would anyone think that another US intervention would be anything but another disaster?
