Students for Justice in Palestine FSU and Dream Defenders Tally SquaDD are joining the statewide mobilization against Israel’s plan to formally annex 30% of the West Bank and dispossess 300,000 Palestinians in the Jordan Valley.

We will be meeting at Westcott at 12pm and marching to the Old Capitol building. Please meet us at the Capitol at 12:45pm if you are not marching!

Please bring your Palestine flags and your banners, wear your keffiyehs and bring an umbrella!

Annexation is not a change from, but rather a continuation of the status quo: ongoing Nakba through land theft and violation of international law. We are calling upon people across the state of Florida rise up in solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle for freedom.

In the middle of a pandemic where half of Americans don’t have jobs and 30 million are at risk of eviction, our government continues to award $10 million a day in military aid to Israel. In the wake of global uprisings against police brutality and white supremacy, our police departments continue participating in the Deadly Exchange: learning “counter-terrorism” strategies from the IDF to militarize Black and brown communities here, and teaching stop-and-frisk strategies to the Israeli police to harass Black and brown communities in occupied Palestine.

We must demand an end to US complicity in Israeli apartheid by renewing the call for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions against companies and institutions that profit from land theft and human rights abuses.

Students say #NoToAnnexation! #FreePalestine #FloridaDayOfRage
