Under Israeli military occupation, millions of Palestinians live in conditions which closely resemble the apartheid system that existed in South Africa.
On December 27 – the second anniversary of Israel’s three-week assault on Gaza – activists in Seattle, USA are launching a Metro bus ad campaign to expose the use of U.S. taxpayers’ money to support Israel’s ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people.
The Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign is launching the advertising campaign aimed at securing equal rights for Palestinians and Israelis, as well as an end to United States military aid to Israel, which continues at a time of economic crisis and severe budget cuts that have resulted in massive unemployment.
Such a simple and effective campaign is not beyond our remit to keep the issue of Palestine at the foremost in people’s minds. Just $1800 is what this campaign cost these activists to run their campaign for four weeks.
Unfortunately we’ve only been taught to give money when the bombs are falling on the heads of the elderly, men, women and children.
Is $1800 a price worth paying to see change?
