STATEMENT BY MEMBERS OF OCCUPY JERSEY CITY AGAINST THE RECENT ISRAELI WAR ON PALESTINE (SPECIFICALLY GAZA), AND IN SUPPORT OF THE UNITED NATIONS VOTE FOR THE STATEHOOD RECOGNITION OF PALESTINE

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and their right to self-determination, dignity, and their right to live in peace and prosperity with its neighbors as equals.

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, condemn Israel's Operation Pillar of Defense against the Palestinian people in Gaza.

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, stand in solidarity with compassionate Israelis and Jews worldwide who condemn Israel's aggressions.

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, recognize leafleting and cellphone-texts to Palestinians to tell them they are being targeted for bombings does in no way make the crime of being bombed any less barbaric. We understand that Palestinians have almost nowhere to run to, as they live in a very densely populated area, and even their seacoast border is controlled by the Israeli military.

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, demand immediate, legal and transparent methods of International financial aid and supplies to be sent to the suffering Palestinians.

We, the members of Occupy Jersey City, celebrate the United Nations historic vote on November 29th, 2012, recognizing the State of Palestine.


Adopted and Approved by Unanimous Vote
