Save the Dates for Action in November

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation wants you to start thinking about actions for the first two weeks of November. The first week of November, we are encouraging supporters and member groups to hold teach-in, rallies, media action days, and other actions to hold U.S. lawmakers and tax payers responsible for complicity in the ongoing siege of the Gaza Strip. This week of action is being organized in conjunction with the organizers of the Gaza Freedom March, which is endorsed by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. We encourage you to sign up for the Gaza Freedom March today! The second week of November, we are promoting the international Week Against the Apartheid Wall called for by the Grassroots Palestinian Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign. We encourage you to plan events and actions drawing attention to the situation in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the effect that the apartheid wall has had on Palestinian rights to land, movement, and access. Start thinking of ideas for actions now, and keep an eye on this blog and the US Campaign website for details and resources.
