For more information, contact: Riham Barghouti at rihambarghouti[at]yahoo.com or Issa Mikel at issamikel[at]gmail.com WHEN:
Tuesday July 18, 4:30 p.m.

WHERE:
Israeli Mission to the UN, at 2nd Ave. between E 42nd and 43rd Sts., NY

WHY:
The Israeli military is expanding its operations from Palestine to Lebanon. It has killed scores of Lebanese civilians and bombed essential civilian infrastructure, such as the Beirut airport. Simultaneously, the Israeli military continues its deadly attacks on Gaza and its stifling economic blockade . True to form, Israel continues its aggressive expansionism in efforts to suppress all resistance to its oppressive, illegal policies toward the people of the region.

Come to a protest and demonstration to demand action now to stop the killing of Lebanese and Palestinians, hold Israel accountable for its crimes, and free all Lebanese and Palestinian political prisoners.

Bring signs, candles, and slogans. We have a common struggle and history is on our side. Come out and show your solidarity.

Also the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is have a pro-Israel rally on Monday at the same spot, likely in response to our protests. We are thus having and impact and need to be out there the next day to maintain the pressure. The Conference will be at 42nd Street and 2nd Avenue at 12:00-3:00 p.m. on Monday the 17th, so all are encouraged to show up there with flags and flyers.
