Solidarity forum in NY on Saturday

Anti-war activists are planning a solidarity event with Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq, in New York this Saturday. Here’s the press release:

Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq
Stop US/Israel War on the Middle East
Emergency Forum

In the last 2 weeks, Israel has unleashed a barbaric campaign of destruction against the Palestinian and Lebanese people.
Using the pretext of recent kidnapping of 3 soldiers by Hamas and Hezollah, Israel has been bombing power plants, bridges, airports and roads in Gaza and Lebanon thus leaving millions of Arab civilians without electricity, water and food. Israel's crimes against humanity are taking place with the support of the US government.

Meanwhile, the UN and the Arab regimes have failed to act to stop this barbarism. But millions of ordinary people around the world want to see Israel 's attacks stopped.
Come hear Solidarity activists discuss the real reasons behind Israel 's current rampage and what we can do here in the US to bring about real justice in the Middle East .
