Jenin Anniversary Palestine Demo Gets Noticed at BU on Monday
DSC00864.JPGSeveral Palestine solidarity activists protested a traveling recruitment fair for the Jewish state on Monday at BUs Marsh chapel. It was the fourth anniversary of the invasion and massacre in the Jenin refugee camp and the open presence of supporters of the apartheid occupation regime in Palestine was particularly offensive.

Balata Camp Solidarity Demo. - Newton
2274.jpgA few of the usual suspects turned out for a small but colorful Palestine vigil at Newton city hall Wednesday night. We gathered in solidarity with the residents of the Balata refuge camp outside of Nablus which has been under siege by attacking Israeli forces for almost a week. Many children and camp residents have been shot, some killed, homes have been demolished and all deprived of food, medical care, and basic freedoms as the occupiers conducts ruthless military aggression against the camps 21,000 inhabitants.

Prospective BU Students Informed of Biolab During Campus Tours
boycott1.jpgSeven Boston University (BU) campus tours were interrupted today by members of Operation: Over to inform the prospective students about BU’s proposed BioSafety Level 4 (BSL-4) lab in Roxbury. These interruptions were intended to promote the boycott of BU that Operation: Over has called.

The boycott is calling for high school students who are considering attending BU to reconsider, on the grounds that their tuition money will go towards funding the proposed BSL-4 lab, which will be built in a densely populated, low-income community of color against its wishes.

Saturdays Boston Common Anti Israeli Wall Demo Report Back
wall foto.jpgAbout 15 Palestine solidarity activists gathered on the Boston common Saturday to protest the ongoing occupation and theft of land by Israeli forces throughout the west bank. We gathered to educate people about the hardship it causes the residents of Bethlehem and Jerusalem both Christian, Muslim and other. Due to media and Israeli military censorship people are generally unable to witness the construction of the wall first hand and to see the racism of the occupation and its structures.

Rosa Parks Human Rights Day March
DSCN1391.jpgOver 500 people participated in the "Rosa Parks National Day of Absence Against Poverty, Racism and War" march that began on Dudley Street in Jamaica Plain and went all the way to City Hall in Boston flanked by two rows of police on bikes and motorcycles. The march had an impressive concurrence from the black community and was well received by people who waved, hand-gestured for peace, and honked their cars on the streets. The highlight of the day was when marchers reached Madison Park Technical Vocational High School and exchanged calls of solidarity with dozens of students hanging from windows, shouting "Rosa Parks! Rosa Parks!" but were not allowed to join the crowd. Inspirational speakers for the day included Chuck Turner, Charles Yancey, Felix Arroyo, Rev. Franklin Hobbs, Minister Rodney Muhammad, and local activists.

On Oct. 26, the Boston City Council passed a 13-0 resolution in tribute to the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks' defiance to segregation in the US, and encouraged businesses and schools to close for the day of December 1st. Activists in New York, Baltimore and Detroit also organized events and hope to get a similar resolution passed in their cities.
