Dewey Square: The Occupation of Boston
On the corner of Summer St. and Atlantic Ave. Across the street from the
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and South Station.
In support of Palestinian political prisoners, most significantly Majd
Ziada, EIR (Existence is Resistance) will be hosting a Kuffeya Day at Dewey
Square in Occupy Boston to spread awareness and gather petition signatures
which will later be delivered to Israeli authorities which are scheduled to
release an additional number of prisoners within 2 months.
In solidarity with the people of Palestine, we are asking that on November
13th everyone come to Dewey Square wearing their Kuffeya. EIR will be on
site silk screening shirts for a $2 donation.
Majd has already served 10 years in an Israeli jail and is due to serve
another 20 for speaking out against Israel's occupation of Palestine and
refusing to recognize the Israeli military court that sentenced him. For
more on Majd's story and to sign the petition, please CLICK HERE
Even if you cannot physically attend this event, please help us by
circulating the petition and inviting your friends. Thank you.
