Organize Now to End Military Aid to Israel!
As the Palestinian BDS National Committee put it: "these huge mobilisations provide a much needed reminder of something that Palestinians have always known -- that another world, a dignifying one, is possible and ordinary people can create it."
Like the #Occupy movement, we are mobilizing everywhere too, with volunteers like you in more than 850 cities all over the country organizing to end $30 billion in U.S. military aid to Israel and redirect that money to fund unmet community needs!
The US Campaign is a proud part of this movement to re-prioritize our government's spending, and our message is resonating loud and clear. The people agree that we should be spending our money to build affordable housing here, not on weapons for Israel to demolish Palestinian homes.Want proof? Watch the reactions that US Campaign staff and interns received in this video from Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC.
With this packet, you'll have everything you'll need to help change U.S. policy toward Palestine/Israel to supportfreedom, justice, and equality -- beginning with ending $30 billion in military aid to Israel.
