Donald Trump is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in New York City while both are scheduled to speak at the United Nations. We know what this meeting means: a deepening of Trump and Netanyahu’s “shared values” of racism and hate.
We must seize this opportunity to say loud and clear: from the US to Palestine, #BuildMovementsNotWalls!
When: Tuesday, September 19 at 6 PM - 8 PM.
Where: March from Grand Central Station to rally at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza (corner of 47th st and 1st ave, across from the UN).
Netanyahu publicly applauds Trumps regressive and disastrous policies, supporting a wall on the US/Mexico border, remaining silent on the Muslim ban, and issuing a delayed and tepid response to white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the streets of Charlottesville. Trump, in turn, points to Israel’s wall as a security success and a justification for his immigration plans.
The racist and Islamophobic agendas of the Trump and Netanyahu administrations go hand in hand. On September 19, we’ll resist them together. Join us as we say: From the US to Palestine, #BuildMovementsNotWalls!
See you in the streets!
