Rally & March - Protest 50 Years of Occupation

RALLY AND MARCH
MONDAY JUNE 5, 2017
CAMBRIDGE CITY HALL, 5PM

As of 2017, Palestinian men, women, and children have endured 50 years of military occupation of their lands in Gaza the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights, as well as an ongoing siege and blockade of Gaza. Since the 1967 Six-Day War, Israel has systematically colonized Palestinian lands and established hundreds of illegal settlements, off-limits to Palestinians. Israel has forced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes and subjected these victims to harsh conditions in refugee camps and exile.

Here's a taste of what Israel has done with over $230 billion of your tax dollars:

  • Demolished over 48,000 Palestinian homes and related structures in the West Bank and Gaza.
  • Stolen over 60% of the land in the West Bank.
  • Colonized the West Bank with over 800,000 Jewish settlers in direct violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
  • Established an apartheid legal system with civil courts for Jewish settlers and separate military courts for 4.5 million Palestinians, who are subjected to indefinite detentions without trial and a 99.74 percent conviction rate.
