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.

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.
