         WAR CRIMES IN GAZA ==================================================

  *Last month, when questioned by a constituent about civilian casualties  
from Israel's attack on Gaza, this is what Senator Warren had to*say [1]*:*

*/“When Hamas puts its rocket launchers next to hospitals, next to schools,  
they're using their civilian population to protect their military assets. And  
I believe Israel has a right, at that point, to defend itself."/*

*We will be on hand when ELIZABETH WARREN* speaks at Tufts University  
[2] *on*
*Monday, September 15*
*Meet at 11am* to hold signs and distribute flyers to people entering the  

*Cohen Auditorium,** 40 Talbot Ave, Medford* (location here [3])
(Public Transportation: Red Line to Davis Square and Bus numbers 94 or 96 to  
Talbot Ave)

*Event 12:00 pm (entry by ticket-holders only)*
*Sign-making Saturday 3pm at MAPA office – 11 Garden St. near Harvard Sq.*

* *

*Our message to Senator Warren:*



* *

*This is not "Self-defense!"*

*This is not "Self-defense!"*


*Major international NGO's, including Amnesty International and Human Rights  
Watch, have called the disproportionate civilian casualties and the attacks  
on essential civilian infrastructure possible "war crimes"; not legitimate  

* *

*And as Congress reconvenes to consider its own military "solutions" in the  
Middle East, please contact*

 * Senator Warren (202-224-4543),
 * Senator Edward Markey (202-224-2742), and your own
 * House Representative (Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121)

*/TELL THEM to speak up for Israeli accountability, adherence to  
international law and compliance with existing statutes regarding the  
permissible uses of exported US weapons/*/.  *It’s long overdue to  
re-examine our policy of unconditionally supplying billions of dollars of  
arms to Israel every year!*/

*The way to peace is not easy or obvious.  But occupation, siege, collective  
punishment and the mass killing of non-combatants will not take us there.   
Please work with us to remind leaders like Elizabeth Warren of what ought to  
be obvious.*

*Thank you (and please feel free to share this message with your contacts),*
