Join us March 10 to tell Friends of the Israel Defense Forces that fundraising for war crimes is not allowed in New York City. No tax write-offs for apartheid!
When: Tuesday, March 10, 5:30 – 7 PM
Where: Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Park Ave. @ 50th St.
What: Picket line with a raising up of the names of those killed in Israel’s 2014 assault on Gaza, followed by chants
Why: Friends of the IDF (FIDF) is a 501c3 with tax-exempt status that supports the Israeli military, which is responsible for upholding the occupation of the West Bank and carrying out violent assaults on the besieged Gaza Strip. Their direct support of the Golani and Givati Brigades, both of which participated in the 2014 attacks on Gaza, killing 2,257 people, is an example of FIDF’s complicity in the ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people.
