  • Solemn march in NY commemorates Gaza victims, calls for GE boycott
  • 'Savage' NY subway ads get a make-over-- revealing their true character
    • Martin Luther King Jr. did a lot of things that were illegal. Gandhi did a lot of things that were illegal. Cesar Chavez did a lot of things that were illegal. Harriet Tubman did a lot of things that were illegal. Phil Berrigan S.J. did a lot of things that were illegal. Daniel Ellsberg did a lot of things that were illegal. The workers in the CIO did a lot of things that were illegal. The suffragists did a lot of things that were illegal. Jews escaping Hitler did a lot of things that were illegal. The law is not sacred. Peace and Justice ARE sacred.

  • The push for divestment continues as the Methodist General Conference enters its second week
    • YES, no double standards! Israel must be held accountable for its human rights record, just as ANY country should be held accountable. Israel is NOT exempt from American standards for human rights. Being the "Jewish State" or being Holocaust survivors in no way gives liscense to Israel to abuse Palestinians' right to self-determination, and boycotts have long been used successfully in nonviolent campaigns for justice throughout American history. "Never Again" means to me that one should never do unto others what may have been done to oneself. I've been the target for violence and abuse all my life, but I will never permit any pain or anger to turn into hatred. MIKE LEVINSON, New York

  • NY activists protest Batsheva Dance Company performance in Brooklyn
    • I was at the protest at the Brooklyn Academy of Music where Batsheva was performing, and it was a terrific protest action! Hooray! Mazol Tov! All American Jews and everybody else should actively support the international campaign to boycott, divest and sanction Israel until that country seriously shows respect for the human rights of the Palestinian people, and others living in the Middle East and around the world. Until Israel changes, the United States should suspend all aid to Israel, both military and non-military. Israel does NOT speak for the Jewish community in New York, America, elswhere in the world nor even for many Jews living in Israel.
