During the second anniversary of Israel’s assault on Gaza that killed 1,400 Palestinians, three events featuring Palestine solidarity activists are being held in Minneapolis. Join us for the final event on January 9: Gal Lugassi of the Israeli direct action group Anarchists Against the Wall will speak at a benefit for the Minnesota Break the Bonds campaign. Anarchists Against the Wall was in the news this week as activist Jonathan Pollack was sentenced to a three-month jail term for his participation in a Tel Aviv critical mass-style bicycle protest during the January 2008 siege of Gaza.
About Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW): AATW is a direct action group that was established in 2003 in response to the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. The group works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint popular struggle against the occupation. With the increase of legal persecution against Palestinian demonstrators, Anarchists Against the Wall are now fundraising to expand its existing legal fund so that it also covers defense costs for Palestinians. This is in addition to covering a standing 15,000 USD debt, resulting from the legal persecution of Israeli anti-wall demonstrators. More for information visit: http://www.awalls.org/.
