Their Job Is Looking After War Criminals. Our Job is to End War Crimes. Protest the Friends of the IDF Fundraiser!<br/><br/> <br/><br/>WHAT: Organizing meeting to protest the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) Fundraiser<br/><br/> <br/><br/>WHEN: 6PM, Wednesday, October 15, 2014<br/><br/>WHERE: First Church Cambridge, Hastings Rm<br/> 11 Garden Street, Harvard Sq<br/> <br/>RSVP here for up to date information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1561127474109934/<br/><br/> <br/><br/>WHY YOU WANT TO BE THERE: On October 30th, 2014, the "non-profit" organization Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) will host a fundraiser on the Boston Waterfront, featuring Israel's Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer. The IDF is the 4th largest army in the world, and is one of the world's best financed, brutal occupying military organizations. It has slaughtered thousands of innocent Palestinians and is most recently responsible for
the massacre of over 2,000 people in the world’s largest open-air prison: Gaza. <br/><br/><br/><br/>With revenue and assets in the millions, FIDF materially supports this slaughter, along with the expansion of military operations and apartheid on Palestinian lands, by sending money to Israeli soldiers and sponsoring trips for Americans to visit Israeli bases. While it is less widely known, the IDF has been training American police forces to employ the same tactics that are used against the Palestinians – most recently in Ferguson, MO with the racist killing of Mike Brown and the continued police occupation of that town. <br/><br/><br/><br/>FIDF fundraisers that have been held in other places, that have been met with organized protests –most recently in New York and Scotland. Let’s continue to let the IDF – and their “Friends” – know that all war crimes, genocide, apartheid, military occupation, racist policing and Islamophobia have to
stop. We call on everyone in Boston to join us in planning and participating in the largest possible protest in Boston so that we can continue building the movement for Palestinian liberation.<a href="https://overview.mail.yahoo.com?.src=iOS"><br/><br/>Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPad</a>
