Boeing and Black Friday flyer

We have created a leaflet based on the Amnesty International report released in July. They performed a high tech, 3D study of the city of Rafah under attack, and then diagram minute by minute, bomb by bomb, death by death, to prove Israel's war crimes.The 4 days fighting in Rafah saw some of the greatest loss of life - between 135 and 200 people. Their report is called Black Friday, because the attack started on a Friday and Friday was the worst. And, on that worst day, the bomb that resulted in the single greatest loss of life was a one ton bomb guided by Boeing's JDAM guidance system.

From Ferguson to Palestine, Occupation is a Crime!

In Palestine, the Israeli military routinely detains and abuses thousands of Palestinian political prisoners, including children.  In the Philippines, political activists are disappeared and murdered by the Aquino government with impunity.

In the U.S., a Black person is killed by police or vigilantes every 28 hours. Oppression is enforced by violence: extrajudicial killings.

Police crimes. Occupation. Siege. But the common enemy propping up these apartheid states, military dictatorships, and militarized police departments is the U.S. government.  The U.S. is the world's biggest warmongering superpower, and resistance in Gaza, uprising in Ferguson, and protest in Manila are all responses to its crimes. 
This year, Palestinians have marched in  Ferguson and countless Black Lives Matter protests. Black activists traveled to Palestine to oppose Israeli apartheid. Angela Davis, the iconic political prisoner from the 1970s, has shared the stage with Rasmea Odeh, a modern day victim of political repression. Activists from the Philippines have also joined in the protests for both Palestine and against police crimes here. And in July, solidarity activists joined Filipinos in Washington, D.C. for a tribunal on human rights abuses by the U.S. backed government in Manila.
