In the early morning of Wed. Nov. 18, 2015 a protest line formed in front of the Newton Marriott saying that Water is a Basic Human Right and that the Jewish National Fund, (JNF) should stop taking land and water from Palestinians.
WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT! Was shouted over and over as a walking picket marched in front of the offices of Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
But Israel uses water as a tool of political oppression and dispossession:
• Israel appropriates Palestinian water resources for its own residents. Illegal West
Bank settlements fill their swimming pools while water taps in Palestinian villages and
refugee camps run dry for months at a time.
Over 2,000 people marched through the streets of Boston on July 22, rallying to stop the attack on Gaza. From Copley Square to the State House, the streets were flooded with people. The chants were loud: "Free Gaza" -- "Not another nickel, not another dime, no more money for Israeli crimes" -- and "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free."
The Somerville based HONK! Parade of activist street bands took place on Sunday Oct. 13. Thousands of people watched as a contingent from the Eastern Mass Anti-Drones Network walked along with our fabulous new Drone replica. The message was clear: the US government must stop killing people with drones. Spying on US citizens and people from other countries cannot be tolerated.
