RSVP here to join us at City Hall Plaza in Boston on Wednesday, October 18 to mourn for the dead, and fight for the living–both Israelis and Palestinians.
This is a Jewish-led action, sponsored by IfNotNow and co-sponsored by Boston Workers Circle and Kavod.
We welcome and encourage our non-Jewish allies to join us.
“No electricity, no food, no water, no fuel. Everything is closed. We are fighting human animals, and we act accordingly.” This promise, from Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, is a direct call for mass killing and forced removal of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes.
The Israeli military is preparing for a massive ground invasion of Gaza. Israeli and American leaders are dehumanizing Palestinians with vitriolic rhetoric that calls to mind the most hysterical days of Bush’s War on Terror. We know where this will lead: genocide.
Our Massachusetts Senators and every American political leader must demand a ceasefire now.
Many of us are mourning our Israeli and Palestinian friends and loved ones. We are in pain and grief, trying to process a week of horrific violence that has left so many that we know injured, traumatized, kidnapped, or killed. But we refuse to let our grief be weaponized to justify the murder of more Palestinians. As American Jews, we demand a ceasefire now.
No genocide in our name.
The time is now to mobilize to prevent this genocide from going forward. We demand that every political leader use their leverage to implement a ceasefire and use any possible tool to force Israel to halt its war on Palestinians in Gaza.
RSVP here for more information, and meet us at 4pm at City Hall Plaza on Wednesday, October 18th.
