From Palestine to the US, NO BANS, NO WALLS! The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) will be holding their annual policy conference March 26-28. AIPAC demands billions of dollars and unquestioned support for Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine and crippling siege on Gaza. They oppose the Iran nuclear deal and lobby congress to fund the Israeli military at the expense of American communities who need safe water, quality schools, and mended infrastructure.
