Standing Against Occupation
June 9, '05
|Women in Black, Union Square
demand an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem
End the occupation… because collective punishment against an entire nation - a brutal military presence, demolition of people's homes, targeted assassinations, a separation wall - violates basic principles of human rights as well as UN resolutions
End the occupation… evacuate the settlements in the occupied territories, built in defiance of international law & U.N. resolutions, with more than 230,000 "settlers" (by Israeli estimates, and many more by UN and Palestinian estimates)
End the occupation… because Israel's military rule over more than 3 million Palestinians is self-destructive - hurting Israel economically and morally, betraying its ideals & standing in the way of the path to peace
