At this critical moment in the struggle of our people, the
Free Palestine Alliance-USA calls upon all those who stand
for justice and liberation to join us at the White House
in Washington, DC on Saturday, April 20, 2002, at 11 a.m.,
in a national mobilization in support of the struggle of
the Palestinian People as we gear up for the protest
against the war criminal Sharon.

As we join thousands from across the nation who will
assemble at the White House on that day, we intend to send
a clear message that we hold the Bush Administration
responsible for the carnage carried out against our
steadfast people in heroic Janin, Nablus, Bethlehem,
Ramallah, Doura, Qalqilia, Tulkarem, Rafah, Jabalia, and
every town and camp in our beloved land.

Indeed, we call on all to stand shoulder to shoulder with
those who stand clearly and unconditionally with our
people's stubborn quest for liberation. As we assemble at
the White House, we will join millions across the world
who have declared repeatedly that the "green light" and
political cover granted by the US Administration is
largely what allowed the war criminal Sharon to launch his
genocidal campaign on the cities, town and refugee camps
of Palestine.

At the White House, we will demand an immediate end to all
U.S. aid to Israel, as we render support to the
Palestinian People's right to self-determination.

At the White House, we will join the national mobilization
organized by the A.N.S.W.E.R. -Act Now to Stop War and End
Racism Coalition, which stands in full support of the
Palestinian people. Among the keynote speakers will be two
prominent Palestinian student activists, Fadia Rafeedie of
Yale University and Randa Jamal of Columbia University.

The organizing for April 20th follows on the heels of the
very successful nationwide student mobilizations on April
9th marking the 54th anniversary of the Deir Yassin
massacre. On campuses across the country, students and
community activists came out in unprecedented numbers --
1,500 at U.C. Berkeley, where 78 people were arrested in a
building sit-in that captured the attention of the US and
much of the world; and 1,000 students at San Francisco
State, with strong and significant protests on dozens of
other campuses. Our community's mobilization is also but
an extension of our people's stand from coast to coast who
stood with tens of thousands of supporters rendering
solidarity with the Palestinian People from Washington,
DC to Los Angeles, and from New York to Chicago, and to
San Francisco.

The April 20th demonstration will also provide a
significant push and preparation for the April 22th
protest against the war criminal Sharon, who is scheduled
to speak along with George Bush that evening at the annual
convention of AIPAC-the American-Israel Public Affairs
Committee, at the Washington Hilton.

We call on all who stand in support of the Palestinian
people at this crucial juncture to join us at the White
House on April 20.

*** Forwarded message
from Al-Awda Palestine Right of Return NY/NJ ***


11 A.M.
(Gather at the Ellipse, south side of the White House,
Constitution and 16th St. NW)

Al-Awda Palestine Right of Return NY/NJ calls on all Arab
and Muslim people and all people of conscience to
participate in a mass demonstration for Palestine on
Saturday, April 20 gathering at the White House (south
side on the Ellipse, 16th & Constitution NW).

Thousands of people from the Arab and Muslim community
will join tens of thousands of others who will denounce
the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people.
The demonstration is at the White House because the
A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (the initiator of the action) is
mobilizing opposition to the policy of George W. Bush
which has given the green light and full backing to Ariel
Sharon?s butchery.

This demonstration will call for an immediate end to U.S.
aid to Israel and will highlight the just cause and heroic
resistance of the Palestinian people.

Bring buses, vans and cars from our community to make this
demonstration at the White House a massive turnout. The
*BUS DROP-OFF* will be at Constitution Avenue and 16th and
Street NW (one block south of the White House).

On April 22 at 5:30 PM, Al-Awda, along with many other
organizations and supporters of the Palestinian people,
will be demonstrating at the AIPAC Conference (American
Israeli Public Affairs Committee) at the Washington
Hilton. War criminal Ariel Sharon and George W. Bush are
scheduled to be honored at the AIPAC banquet.
