Tuesday, February 15 Capitol Calling Party: Resisting Attacks on Palestinian Human Rights Activists

Tuesday, February 15 Capitol Calling Party: Resisting Attacks on Palestinian Human Rights Activists

On Tuesday, February 15, join CODEPINK Congress & Massachusetts Peace Action for the second event in our SPECIAL SERIES ON FOREIGN POLICY!

Meet Palestinian human rights activists who refuse to be silenced, despite an intense crackdown on advocates for Palestinian human rights. In the U.S., the Israel lobby has vilified educators, targeting Palestinian human rights advocates with enemy lists and demanding they be fired. Abroad, Israel has outlawed six prominent NGOs for advocating for Palestinian rights, labeling them terrorist organizations. Learn about the work of Palestine Legal, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Against Canary Mission and the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel -- and take action in solidarity with those resisting the crackdown.

*Note: By RSVPing to this event, you are signing up to join the CODEPINK AND either Massachusetts Peace Action or your local Peace Action affiliate's email list
