In an emergency response to oppose Israel’s collective punishment of Palestinians over 50 people from a broad range of groups rallied in Hartford Monday at rush hour.
With out clear evidence following the murder of three Israeli youth, Israel unleashed attacks on Palestinians including a massive bombing campaign of Gaza, 400 arrests in the West Bank, the lynching of Mohammad Abu Khudair, and the beating of his cousin.
The current campaign of Israeli terror is nothing new. Israel’s military is funded to the tune of 3 billion US tax dollars each year. And with that money Israeli soldiers or settlers have killed a Palestinian youth or child every three days for the last 13 years.
On Thursday we’d like to encourage everyone to attend ANSWER’s Rally against Israel’s collective punishment of the Palestinians.

Japanese-American Internment and
State Repression Today
A True Story
Memories of a Thirteen Year Old Girl, 1941-1944
As war hysteria swept the west coast in 1941 Japanese American Families were forced from their homes and lands by presidential decree, which gave them only forty-eight hours to leave their homes and abandon their businesses. The government confined more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans in internment camps around the country. Both American citizens and resident aliens were treated as grave security threats. Large signs in bold letters were posted everywhere for all persons of Japanese ancestry, listing the areas and boundaries that were affected.
Hear author Lorraine Leiko Miyahara describe her experience in the internment camps as a child and what present assaults on civil liberties mean for people in the U.S. today. To be followed by a discussion.
