5 June, Milwaukee: Protest Israeli Ambassador’s Visit!

Tuesday, 5 June
11:15 am
Milwaukee County War Memorial Center
Milwaukee, WI
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/198944740727192/

Since March 30th of this year, Israeli snipers, as well as other soldiers, have killed over 120 unarmed Palestinian in Gaza and wounded more than 12,000. On May 14 alone, 19 Palestinian medics were shot. Now one of Netanyahu’s closest allies, Ron Dermer, is coming to Milwaukee! Dermer is also close to Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who withheld his role in funding illegal settlements on the West Bank, while Trump has put him in charge of bringing “peace” to the Middle East. Our taxes are paying for these murders. We cannot be silent.

June 5th marks also the 51st anniversary of the Israeli occupation of Gaza, the West Bank, and Jerusalem. One of the only remaining occupations in our times. Palestinians in the occupied territories live under Apartheid rules that control their movement, their ability to work and farm their land and, in general, their ability to live in peace. Settler colonialists, protected by the Israeli army harass them, destroy their crops and trees, stop them from getting to their fields, and physically assault them. We are not going to let Dermer play the victim and cast blame on the occupied Palestinian people.

As a result of the recent massacres in Gaza, Israel has been put under pressure by the international community and people of conscience. In response, Bibi and his government embark on a campaign to distract and mislead. However, people of conscious are going to continue to stand up for Palestinian rights and will continue their cultural and economic boycott and divestment to pressure Israel in ending its apartheid rules.

On June 5th, as Ron Dermer is white washing genocide, join Jews, Arabs and people of conscience to affirm the right of return for those Palestinians and their descendants who were driven out of their home 70 years ago and since.
