Stolen Generations: Rally and March Against Israeli Occupation
*When:* Monday, June 22, 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
*Where: * Cambridge City Hall • Cambridge
After 50 years of Israeli occupation, Palestinians should be free. As
of June 2017, Palestinian men, women and children have endured 50 years
of military occupation of their lands in Gaza, the West Bank, East
Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, as well as an ongoing siege and
blockade of Gaza. Since the 1967 Six-Day War, Israel has systematically
colonized Palestinian lands and established hundreds of illegal
settlements, off-limits to Palestinians. Israel has forced hundreds of
thousands of Palestinians from their homes and subjected these victims
to harsh conditions in refugee camps and exile. Here’s a taste of what
Israel has done with over $230 billion of your tax dollars:
• Demolished over 48,000 Palestinian homes and related structures in the
West Bank and Gaza.
• Stolen over 586,000 acres of Palestinian land in the West Bank.
• Colonized the West Bank with over 600,000 Jewish settlers in direct
violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
• Established an apartheid legal system with civil courts for Jewish
settlers and separate military courts for 4.5 million Palestinians, who
are subjected to indefinite detentions.
Now is the time to *escalate campaigns *in support of the Palestinian
struggle for freedom, justice, and equality. 2017 not only marks 50
years occupation. It has also been *10 years* since *Israel’s blockade
of Gaza*; *70 years* since the *Nakba and ethnic cleansing of
Palestine* began following the partition of the land against the will of
the indigenous people; and *100 years* since the *Balfour Declaration*,
which set the stage for the Zionist movement to colonize Palestine and
later to establish a Jewish state.
