Haifa SOS to Boston Democrats
31 Jan 2005
The municipality of Haifa, a "twin city" of boston, is planning demolitions in different Arab neighborhoods in the mixed city. Please, help to resist this injustice
Dear Friends,

The municipality of Haifa is planning demolitions in different Arab neighborhoods in the mixed city.

The Arab population, which suffers from many years of discrimination and neglect, decided to make a stand at one site where the demolitions are due this week (till 4/2/05).

The municipality of Haifa is refusing negotiations, and, according to the Israeli press, plans to throw hundreds of police and special units "shock troops" to break any resistance.

Arab activists promise to stay in the buildings even if they will be destroyed on their heads, and warn of imminent bloodshed.

The Boston public is in the best position to prevent the coming catastrophe. Boston is “twin city” with Haifa, and contributes to its budget. Only if the Boston public and media will ask the Haifa municipality for clarifications, it may be shamed to avoid this most dangerous attack on the Arab minority in this relatively peaceful city.

More details of the planned demolitions may be found in the following site: hallisa.tripod.com

Please wake up the German public opinion for urgent action.

Best wishes for peace and love for all,

Yosi Mizrahi
