Nick Maniace of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network joined the Rally for Peace and Solidarity organized by the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) in New York City on Sunday, 13 March. He spoke at the rally, urging action for justice in Palestine and calling out the U.S. presidential candidates and government for their ongoing financial, political and military support for the Israeli state.
He encouraged participants to join next week’s 20 March protest in Washington, DC, outside the AIPAC Convention, where candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will be speaking, and protesters outside will march to the White House to demand justice for Palestine. Samidoun is part of the NY4Palestine Coalition, which is working with Al-Awda NY to organize a bus from New York City to the protest. Bus tickets are available online.
