Two Protests against Zionism and War
Sunday September 10, 2006




First:
3 PM outside the JFK School on JFK Street in Harvard Square Cambridge.

Anti-war activists will be demonstrating outside the JFK School with signs such as "US & Israel Hands Off Iran", "No More War for Oil, Empire and Israel", "USA & Israel are the Real Terrorists", "Free Palestine". "From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free", "Divest from Israel, Not from Sudan", "Nukes Inventory Card: US - thousands. Israel - hundreds. Iran - Zero"

The occasion is an appearance by former President Mohammed Khatami of Iran at 4 PM at the JFK School.

The racist hate group JCRC (specifically their activist wing the Israel Action Center) is organizing a zionist pro-war anti-Iran demo at the same time and location.




Second:
7 PM outside the Eliot Church in Newton. On Church St near the intersection with Centre St in Newton Corner

The director of JCRC's Israel Action Center, Seth Brysk, is scheduled to speak on a panel on the Middle East Crisis at the Newton Dialogues meeting at the Eliot Church at 7:30 PM. Seth will be coming from his pro-war demo in Cambridge.

Anti-war activists will be present protesting against war, zionism, empire, racist hate groups and phony peace groups.




We invite all people of conscience to join us at these two protests on Sunday to oppose racist genocidal US/Israeli wars against Arabs and Muslims

Sudan?
11 Sep 2006
Modified: 05:13:30 PM
There are a number of serious issue for the Boston radical left with the positions (and tactics) seemingly put forth by this group. At least judging from their previous protests. I will only address one in this post.

The ongoing human death and suffering on a catastrophic scale in the Sudan is real and horrific. Just as real as the horrors being visited on the people of Palestine and Lebanon by the IDF and the Israeli government.

I hope that the message is NOT and well not be that western radicals should support the actions of the Sudanese government and their murderous militias? Just because some pro-occupation and Zionist groups may be cynically using the situation in Sudan to further their racist demonizing of Arabs, does NOT mean that Sudan must automatically be the good guy.

The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.

We should all also be aware that Sudan is not the only horrific human catastrophe taking place in Africa today, even though it does get more attention than most. The Congo is most likely the worst war going on in the Africa now and does not get much attention. Again though this does NOT mean that Sudan is given too much attention, it simply means that Congo and others do not get enough.

Perhaps I misread the signs and misinterpreted the positions of this group at pervious events. If so please let me know (below) your actual position in regards to Sudan.

i couldn't agree more with your comment. it is deplorable that BAZA would support such a fucked up government as the Sudanese government.
what have you to say in support of yourself Flannelman?
