From the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the movement to divest from apartheid South Africa, strategic boycott and divestment campaigns are one of the most effective form of nonviolent action. A new day is dawning in Congress with the arrival of bold progressive women of color like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar who are voicing their support for Palestinian rights and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction movement. The defenders of the status quo — of occupation, war, and Israeli apartheid — are getting desperate. Pro-Israel forces in the Senate are moving quickly. As the first Senate bill of 2019, Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would cement a $3.8 billion yearly in military aid to Israel and establish federal legal protections for states like Texas that punish individuals or business that engage in a boycott of Israeli apartheid. Follow the instructions below to contact your Congress member and urge them not to co-sponsor the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019, S. 1.

    This is par for the course in lil’ israel, the united suck of assassins. Another example: The prison industrial complex and it’s terroristic tool of enforcement, the death penalty, are only going to get worse; if “…we(e),…”, continue to submit to this system of defacto-slavery- we can change it, will we, do you? Compliance is suicide, we are defiance. The klueless kluking klan’s criminal insanity is spreading; once more to the breech; between their ears- Trumpler’s equating demonstrators against notsees, who were just standing their ground, with notsees demonstrating their imagined resurgent supposed power with Trumpler in the Blackhouse, was the last straw!!! Censure and impeach!!! The Trumpler’s exec. branch proves what I’ve been saying for decades, the rems are criminally insane, and the dinos aren’t much better when they legitimize them; against the will of the supposed left, led by totalitarians and their puppets, supposed socialists and anarchists, who insisted I was alarmist when I talked about the rems slow-motion blitzkreig continually gaining speed and their premeditated murder of 7 billion people by the lack of abolition of fossil fuel use, etc.. Dylan said, “…all I see are grey eyes…”, all I see anywhere in dems and dinos eyes, is the invisible coup deux, re-electing Trumpler. The remocrats play hardball and the dempublicans play soft; “…we(e),…”, must change that!!! The obsession with pointing out the deck chairs are sliding as the Titanic is going down, the pointing out that remocrats and tea partiers are sexist, which is a waste of time by dempublicans and, thereby helping the re-election of Trump; people, the next presidential election cycles starts in 2 1/2 years- get with it, buck the f up, please. Studying, in the art of living, teaches compassion furthers. Might might make right, but, it always makes wrong, fraternity rules. The intellect can’t lead, for the life doesn’t follow. The illimitable, indivisible you, walking in nature’s balance, giving back to nature’s abundance, knows that and all; be the you that you can be- free. Just say “no” to the ban and wall, compliance is suicide, we are defiance. All life are needed threads in the fabric of life, “…we(e),…”, can’t allow to be torn asunder. reality

    What does hurricane relief have to do with Israel? Why are you letting Israel dictate domestic policies? You will be the first Governor to violate the 1st Amendment.
