Banner Drop Over Cross Bronx Expressway Continues Wave of Jewish Solidarity

JATO-NYC | A banner drop over New York City's entrance to the Cross Bronx Expressway, at 179th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan, carried out by members of Jews Against the Occupation/NYC, declared "Free Palestine." This action by Jewish New Yorkers continued the wave of increasingly public Jewish solidarity with the Palestinians recently targeted by the Israeli government's attack on the Gaza Strip, which killed over 1,300 people. Four banners were hung from overpasses on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and a fifth near the U.S.S. Intrepid on the West Side Highway in January. more...  15 Comments

NYCers Say: Don't Break Palestinian Hearts On V-Day

Adalah-NY | Fifty-five New York rights advocates called today on the city's shoppers to boycott Israeli diamond mogul and settlement-builder Lev Leviev. The pre-Valentine's Day protest was the 13th demonstration held in front of Leviev's Madison Avenue jewelry store since it opened in November, 2007. Many New York shoppers paused to look at the heart-shaped signs and a Dating Game skit featuring a protester playing Leviev, and to listen to the noisy chants and the song "Lev's Diamonds are a Crime's Best Friend." more...  1 Comments

New Yorkers, Boycott Israel Now!

Adalah-NY | Israel's attack on Gaza - killing 1300 Palestinians, injuring thousands more, and decimating the impoverished Gaza Strip - has demonstrated even more clearly the vital need for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns against Israel. With our governments once again failing to act to prevent Israeli war crimes, individuals and civil society must lead the way, as they did in the US civil rights struggle and the struggle against apartheid South Africa. In response to the growing demand from New Yorkers for information on boycotting Israel, Adalah-NY is releasing a flyer with carefully researched information on ten Israeli and international businesses, all with a significant New York City presence, whose products you can boycott in order to send a strong message that business cannot go on as usual for Israel as long as Israeli war crimes and apartheid continue.
