Brooklyn: Canvass to End Military Detention of Palestinian Kids
18 May 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Saturday, 18 May
Brooklyn Public Library
10 Grand Army Plaza
Join the NYC-DSA Anti-War Working Group as we canvas in support of H.R. 2407, the “Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation” Act.
Sign our petition calling on NY Congressional representatives to support the legislation: bit.ly/PalestinianChildren
[in the last session of Congress, the same legislation was supported by ZERO congressional reps from New York]
This is the first legislation in US history that would put in place US sanctions against Israel, in proportion to Israeli violations of Palestinian rights.
The U.S. currently gives $3.8b yearly in unconditional military aid to Israel. If implemented, this act would end US funding to systematic Israeli crimes against Palestinian children, under the Israeli military detention system in the occupied West Bank.
It should not be controversial to demand that US taxpayer dollars not go toward crimes against children— in Palestine, or anywhere!
