the Boston Celebration of "Israeli Independence Day"
- 54 Years of Zionist Racism and Genocide
- The U.S./Israeli War Against the Palestinians
Sunday, June 9, 2002 - Copley Square, Boston
Gather at 11:30 a.m. for Noon Rally
Then March to the Site of the "Israel Day" Event
Halt all U.S. Support to Israel -
Financial, Political, and Military!
End the Occupation!
Freedom and Justice for Palestine!
All Palestinian Refugees Must Go Back to Their Homes!
Israel has maintained its occupation for more than half a
century, devastating the Palestinian people. The state of
Israel was founded by acts of terror against Palestinian
villages (Deir Yassin and more than 400 others) and by the
institution of citizenship and land rights based on race
(the "law of return"). We say yes to the Jewish people, but
no to the Zionist ideology that guides the brutal oppression
of the Palestinians. It is no less a racist ideology than is
Israeli "independence" is no cause for celebration. It has
meant misery and deprivation for the indigenous Palestinians
whose land was stolen to create the Israeli state. Five
million Palestinians (60% of all Palestinians) are refugees
outside Palestine, with no return on the horizon. Three
million Palestinians live under the military occupation, on
less than 14% of their former lands. We uphold the right of
return of all Palestinians displaced by Israel.
We are outraged that this public celebration should take
place in Boston. In Jenin, Israeli tanks demolished
ambulances, injured civilians were left to die in the
streets, and bodies still lie beneath the rubble. To the
Israeli Defense Forces, anything that moves is a target:
reports of the IDF shooting at children, the elderly, the
disabled, physicians, and members of the press have come
We are protesting the Israeli state, the U.S. government
that backs, arms and controls it to safeguard the profits of
the U.S. oil companies, and the violent military occupation
