‘End Military Aid to Israel’ campaign comes to BART

Two months after ads calling for an end to U.S. military aid to Israel went up in Chicago Transit Authority stations, a similar campaign began this week in the Bay Area.

Inspired by the work of the Chicago-area Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine (CJPIP), the Bay Area initiative was launched by the Northern California Friends of Sabeel, the local branch of a national group that supports the Palestinian Christian liberation theology movement. The Bay Area chapters of Jewish Voice for Peace and American Muslims for Palestine quickly signed on as co-sponsors.

The ads, currently posted in three heavily trafficked stations – 12th Street Oakland, Downtown Berkeley, and San Francisco Civic Center – are virtually identical to those the CJPIP ran in Chicago, and they refer commuters to the same website: www.TwoPeoplesOneFuture.org. The sponsors hope to launch a broader campaign to bring the message to more Bay Area commuters in the coming year. Donate to support expansion of the campaign here.

    I’m dying to see it come to the NYC Transit Authority. [It’ll sure beat the ignorant and uninspired graffitti currently adorning public transit in Gotham.] Doubt it, though.

    This is an effective campaign, well worth supporting.

    In fact, I suspect it may be more effective than BDS.

    Wouldn’t you know it! Just hours after I submitted this peace, the webmaster for http://www.TwoPeoplesOneFuture.org decided to reorganize the site a bit, and the link at the end of my post for donating to the Bay Area campaign is no longer correct. The new address is
