Marches against Wars and Occupations

Help Us Organize to End Military Aid to Israel
at Marches against Wars and Occupations

As we approach the 6th anniversary of the U.S. war on Iraq and the 42nd anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous Riverside Church speech “Beyond Vietnam,” the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation calls on all of its member groups and individual supporters to join marches protesting U.S. spending on wars and occupations and calling for a new economy based on our country’s unmet domestic needs.

Over the next ten years, the United States is scheduled to provide Israel with $30 billion in military aid to maintain its illegal occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip, and to commit human rights abuses against Palestinians living under this military occupation. During the Bush Administration, Israel killed more than 3,000 innocent Palestinian civilians who took no part in hostilities, often with U.S. weapons.

These marches are great opportunities for us to reach out to like-minded people and get them to join with us in our campaign to challenge U.S. military aid to Israel. Help us organize at these marches!

On the sixth anniversary of the war on Iraq, the ANSWER Coalition is holding a national march on the Pentagon, this Saturday, March 21.

Join the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation for this important march and help us collect postcard signatures to President Obama calling on him to cut off military aid to Israel.
