Join us for a screening of the documentary Killing Gaza followed by discussion with the filmmakers.
Killing Gaza documents the 2014 Israeli assault of Gaza and captures the resilience of the Palestinian people in the face of the horrific assault. It is a chilling document of the war crimes committed by the Israeli military, featuring direct testimony by survivors, just days after the indiscriminate shelling, bombings and summary executions carried out by the IDF.
The film is a call to action to end the annual $3.8 billion in U.S. aid to the apartheid state of Israel and to demand the Right of Return for all Palestinians.
Today, the people in Gaza continue to protest despite mounting Israeli brutality. Gaza is an open-air concentration camp where over 95% of all water is poisonous and electricity is limited to only 3 hours per day. The Palestinians protesting near the apartheid fence for the simple right to exist and a return to their homes just miles across the border are met with Israeli sniper fire. More than 100 Palestinians protesters have been murdered by IDF sharpshooters, including children, with more than 13,000 wounded in just the last few months.
The film makes clear how the continuation of the state of Israel is predicated on violence against the indigenous Palestinian people and how crucial international awareness and support for their struggle is crucial to the liberation of Palestine. (2018, 84 min)

August 16 - The Pentagon just released the estimated costs of Donald Trump's Nov. 10th parade celebrating war, militarism (and, of course, himself) and it is a staggering $92 million – $80 million more than the earlier estimate. The parade will include tanks, armored vehicles, war plane flyovers and more.
There are 500,000 people who are homeless in the United States, including over 40,000 veterans. 6.5 million children are food insecure. Recently teachers all over the country have been going on strike because our schools are so terribly underfunded and millions of people still can not afford to go to a doctor when they or their children are sick. Spending $92 million dollars so that Trump can watch tanks roll down Pennsylvania Avenue is a disgrace.
We, the people ,won't stand for this.
Please join us by organizing your community for the massive anti-war demonstration in Washington D.C. on Saturday Nov. 10. The ANSWER Coalition has already obtained permits for space for a massive demonstration right along the parade. A coalition of organizations is mobilizing people from all over the country. Another coalition has formed in Washington, D.C. of organizations and activists who are planning to organize in every neighborhood to bring people out in protest of the parade.
We are building a stage, sound system and bringing buses from all over the country.
