NoHo Speak Out for Justice in Palestine

Daoud Nassar inspects the destruction at the site of his family’s former grove of 1,500 fruit trees near the West Bank village of Nahalin, 3 June. On 19 May, Israeli forces bulldozed the family’s groves, which contained mature apricot, apple, grape, almond and fig trees planted ten years ago.

 A group of us in Western Mass who are disturbed and enraged by this most recent wave of Israeli state and vigilante attacks on Palestinian civilians are coming together to speak out. Our hope is to raise awareness about the racist colonial violence that the Israeli state is carrying out with the financial and public relations support of the U.S. government.

 
Please join us —
Friday July 18th, 2014 at 7:00 pm 
outside of City Hall in Downtown Northampton
for a discussion & speak out & vigil in solidarity with the Palestinian people. 
 
     We will discuss the recent/ongoing attacks and ways that allies throughout Western MA can take action to support the Palestinian struggle for justice. ALSO, this Friday – July 11th at 6:00 pm – we will meet at City Hall in downtown Northampton to express our condemnation of the attacks through public art and spread the word about upcoming W.MA action. If you’d like to get involved, feel free to join us and paint or just come out for Northampton’s Art Night Out and express your support!
