Actions ongoing to denounce Israeli massacre of Gaza protesters - Photos and Upcoming Events

See below for upcoming actions and photos/video from recent actions

At least 60 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli army on May 14, and thousands more wounded, many suffering critical or life-changing injuries. While the corporate media headlined “deadly clashes” or “violent protests,” the reality is that the Israeli occupiers committed another massacre. In a series of protests beginning on Land Day, March 30, more than 100 Palestinians have been killed and many thousands wounded, most by rifle fire.

Israeli forces have reported no deaths or injuries. That is because the Palestinians in Gaza are fenced-off inside the world’s largest open-air prison, and are being shot down and gassed from afar.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians in Gaza and thousands more in the West Bank and inside the 1948 borders of Israel were protesting the official ceremony marking the moving of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem another attack by the Trump regime on Palestinian rights. Outside the ceremony, hundreds of Palestinian and Jewish protestors, including Ahmad Tibi and Aida Touma-Sliman, Palestinian members of the Israeli parliament, were beaten and arrested for daring to raise the Palestinian flag. At the same time, demonstrators from the United States supporting the embassy move were allowed to carry American flags.

While Trump pretends his support for Israel is based on sympathy with Jewish people, that pretense was demolished by his choice of the notorious anti-Semite, Islamophobe and all-around bigot, Rev. Robert Jeffress to open the embassy celebration with a prayer. Jeffress once proclaimed that “all Jews will go to hell.”
