Al-Awda NY encourages its members and supporters to participate in the following action. It is well-known that such repressive laws have targeted Palestinian and Arab activists first and foremost, and it is urgent that we stand together against further repression:
When: Tuesday, Jan. 3
Time: 12 p.m.
Where: New York Public Library at 5th Ave and 42nd
A call has been put out by Occupy Wall Street to let our government know the people will not tolerate any more attacks on our rights!
January 3rd will be a spontaneous show of people power in reaction to Obama’s treasonous signing of the National Defense Authorization Act. Not only does this act violate our first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth amendments, as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, but this Act was signed quietly this past New Years Eve violating what little trust remained between the people and their established government. We see what’s happening here, and we will not stand for it.
TENTATIVE SCHEDULE FOR DAY OF ACTION:
12 pm – Press Conference at NYPL at Bryant Park.
2 pm – Office demo at Senator Gillibrand’s office at 780 3rd Ave.
3 pm – Office demo at Senator Schumer’s office at 757 3rd Ave.
4 pm – Rally up at Rockefeller Plaza
5 pm – flash check about NDAA in Grand Central for commuters.
