Are
you outraged at Israel's genocidal war path through Gaza? You and
hundreds of millions around the world! Who wouldn't be at the senseless
destruction, loss of innocent life, the targeting of schools and
mosques, the use of horrific chemical weapons such as white phosphorus,
the targeting of aid convoys, youth, power plants that keep water clean
and the little food that's around refrigerated, destruction of
communications infrastructure, the razing of not only homes but whole neighborhoods and cities...
It's an immeasurable catastrophe.

In order for our movement to
be effective and to grow wide and strong, we must come together to
learn and exchange ideas. This conflict raises questions of local,
national, and international significance:

* What is Israel doing? What actually happening on the ground?  Why is this war happening, and why now?  What are Israel's real goals behind the rhetoric?

*
What is the US's relationship with Israel? Why does the US give Israel
such massive and unflinching support materially and diplomatically,
despite international opposition?

* Can we do anything about it?
What does the grassroots movement against this war look like here and
abroad, where is it going? Does what we do in our own neighborhoods and
schools really matter?

Let's educate ourselves to build this movement and really make a difference!
