ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND

 

US Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) has introduced a bill (S720) which is an attempt to squelch dissent when we need #resistance most. Read all about it here: https://theintercept.com/2017/07/19/u-s-lawmakers-seek-to-criminally-outlaw-support-for-boycott-campaign-against-israel/

If passed, the possible felony charges Palestine solidarity activists face could in the future be extended to other grassroots activists, who are using the powerful boycott, divestment, sanctions tactic to hit agents of injustice where it hurts, in the pocket book.

An injustice to one is an injustice to all. The intersection of the Palestinian struggle with other international and local movements demands we turn out and speak up!

Cardin’s Town Hall Meeting will be held at a the Johns Hopkins University Campus in Rockville Maryland at 7pm on Thursday Evening. We will be there an hour earlier to greet the Senator and let him know that we will continue to #Resist his attacks on Free Speech and Palestinian Human Rights.
