Join CODEPINK's Ariel Gold and others in telling Stephanie Miner: Don’t Tour Apartheid Israel. Call her office (315) 448-8005 and join a teach-in in front of City Hall on Wednesday September 6 at 12:30
On September 9, Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner is going on trip to Israel sponsored by the American Jewish Committee. The AJC is one of the organizations that also funds exchanges between US and Israeli law enforcement. Learn more about this Deadly Exchange program here:www.deadlyexchange.org/
Join us in condemning Mayor Miner’s all-expense-paid junket to Israel this month. This trip is the equivalent of crossing an international moral picket line.
On this trip she will no doubt be shielded from the checkpoints, the settlements, the separation wall, the refugee camps, the destroyed homes and schools, and all of the other elements that make up the apartheid, colonial state that continues to occupy Palestine.
The Mayor’s trip is a dangerous symbolic gesture of normalizing Israeli’s apartheid state...if you stand with oppressed people and against police brutality in the United States, you must stand with oppressed people and against state violence abroad.
