(en) US, mergency protest in Pittsburgh against Israeli Terror - July 26th

Date Fri, 21 Jul 2006 19:40:35 +0300

Because of the possibility that there are going to be many high-risk participants in
this demonstration (immigrants, Muslims, people of Middle Eastern descent) we ask that
you use consideration when choosing your tactics as to not put them at any unnecessary risk.
Wednesday July 26th -- Gathering: 6:30pm -- March: 7pm
Where: The painted fence in the grassy area in the middle of CMU's campus. Oakland.
> Emergency Protest Against Israeli Terror
After the Israel Defense Force shelled a Gaza Strip beach killing ten, Hamas responded
with a cross-border raid on June 26 which resulted in the capture of an Israeli soldier.
Two days later Israel invaded the Gaza Strip effectively re-occupying it. On July 12,
Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers sparking an all-out war against the people of
Lebanon. The death toll has climbed to over 300 and half a million people have been
displaced in eight days with the US giving Israel another week of bombing before they
will begin to use diplomacy.

As the current crisis in the Middle East escalates, it must be recognized that the
atrocities committed in Palestine, in Lebanon, in Iraq, and elsewhere, are not new. We
can speak of deaths and atrocities in Gaza during the recent invasion, but we can't
forget the deaths and atrocities committed every day in Gaza from the last 39 years. We
can talk about the terrible bombings in Lebanon over the last week, but we can't forget
that this small country has been a battleground for over 30 years. We can point to the
high estimates of Iraqi casualties reaching the hundreds of thousands, but we can't
forget the million who died from sanctions in the 1990s. Nothing that we can see today
is new, only the latest incarnation of the war for dominance that raged for much of the
last century.

Join Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG), Anti-Racist Action (ARA), and Pittsburgh
Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) as we protest U.S.-backed Israeli aggression and
demand an immediate end to all forms of oppression of the lands and everyday life of the
Palestinian people, and an immediate withdrawal of all Israeli forces from Lebanon, on
Wednesday, July 26 at the painted fence at Carnegie Mellon University (located on the
green lawn in the middle of campus) at 6:30pm, and march at 7:00pm. This gathering and
march will be preceded by a brief event for the press at 6:00pm. Bring signs, bucket
drums, other noise makers, or anything else to express your outrage at Israel�s ongoing
and escalating campaign of murder and occupation.
