Stop the Israeli offensive against Palestine and Lebanon!

Trotskyist Faction for the Fourth Internation | However, the element that can significantly change the relationship of forces and lay waste to the greatest plans of the most powerful military organization, which is the Israeli army, is the fact that a further intensification of its offensive in Lebanon could spark the mobilization of the masses of the Middle East, who for weeks have watched the bombings, the imprisonment and the collective punishment to which the Palestinian masses in Gaza have been subjected, which has fed the hatred and the spirit of vengeance against the Zionist state. Also, although still in a very minor form, the Israeli attacks are beginning to awaken the pacifist movement in Israel, a problem which could grow if the costs of war continue to mount, not only on the arm (mostly formed by conscripted soldiers), but also on the civilian population, if the Israeli government can't rapidly put a halt to the missile attacks on its civilian population centers. more...  0 Comments

NO Deportations, NO Border Walls, NO Minutemen

No One Is Illegal (NOISI) Coalition | ******Please forward widely**********

NO MORE DEPORTATIONS
NO MORE BORDER WALLS
NO MORE SO-CALLED 'WAR ON TERROR'
NO MORE MINUTEMEN


PRESS CONFERENCE BY THE 'NO ONE IS ILLEGAL' COALITION TO PROTEST MINUTEMAN FOUNDER JIM GILCHRIST 'S APPEARANCE AT GROUND ZERO

PLEASE CALL: 347.537.3433

11 am, July 26
City Hall Park
Corner of Murray St and Broadway

From there, we will march to the corner of Church and Liberty Sts to rally with other pro-immigrant organizations.

Minutemen founder Jim Gilchrist is coming to "Ground Zero" to link his war on immigrants to the rhetoric around a "War on Terror" used to justify US military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the arrest, frequent torture, and deportation without charges of masses of Arab and Muslim immigrants in this country.
While the Minutemen portray themselves as a tolerant group concerned only with border security, they are in fact and armed militia group that seeks to recruit members on the basis of racist lies, such as Gilchrist's claim that "20 % of southern border-crossers are known criminals, drug dealers, sex
traffickers, and gang lords.' Gilchrist is a member of the openly white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, and ex-leader of the Minutemen James Chase wrote to him in 2005 that ""You have murderers in your ranks. You have Nazis, other anti-Jews, and anti-Hispanic racists side by side with you."
Neither the Minutemen Project nor the "War on Terror" (and its domestic agent, the ICE) have anything to do with security, let alone concern for those who died on 9/11/2001. Both stir up racist hatred to turn attention away from the real causes of instability in the lives of working people in this country.

In reality, immigrant labor contributes to the US economy and an increase in jobs rather than "stealing jobs", while the US military remains, in the words of Martin Luther King, by far "the greatest purveyor of violence" in the world today.

JOIN THE 'NO ONE IS ILLEGAL' (NOISI) COALITION AND A DIVERSE GROUP OF CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS FOR
A PRESS CONFERENCE TO EXPOSE GILCHRIST 'S LIES, AND CALL FOR FULL RIGHTS FOR ALL IMMIGRANTS!
