(April 5, NYC) Today 10,000 people demonstrated in New
York City to demand an end to Israel's U.S.-financed
war against the Palestinians. Organizers with the
A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, which called the rally, said
today's action launched a national campaign, the high
point of which will be the convergence at the White
House of thousands on Saturday, April 20. Other
demonstrations in the region included Patterson and
Jersey City, New Jersey, in front of the Israeli
Mission to the UN and in Brooklyn, New York..
Thousands marched through midtown Manhattan from Times
Square to the Israeli consulate. Friday's Times
Square rally - endorsed by a wide spectrum of
organizations, including Arab and Muslim groups,
anti-globalization activists, students, and civil
rights organizations (see below for endorsers) - ends
a week of massive pro-Palestinian demonstrations
throughout the Middle East, that have been joined in
by rallies across the U.S., which have been organized
by a variety of groups and coalitions, including in
Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia,
Washington DC (one initiated by the American Arab
Anti-Discrimination Committee and another by Black
Voices for Peace), and many more.
"This was a rally to stand with the Palestinians and
against the bloody war Israel is waging," said Sara
Flounders, co-director of the International Action
Center, which one of ten national organizations that
make up the A.N.S.W.E.R. steering committee. "As such,
it is also a rally against President Bush, who is
backing Sharon's offensive all the way - he's paying
for the weapons and he's calling the shots.
"These demonstrations shows that Bush can't isolate
Arab and Muslim people with the threat of racial
profiling. We are all here today from many communities
to demand an end to the U.S./Israeli attacks."
"The next big step is April 20 March on the White
House to protest the so-called war on terrorism which
is proving to be a pretext to support U.S. military
interventions in the Middle East, the Philippines,
Colombia, and in opposition to the administration's
attack on civil rights an civil liberties at home,"
said Flounders. "Today thousands from all boroughs in
New York City came out for Palestine. On April 20,
many more thousands are coming to Washington D.C.
There they will demand an end to Bush the program and
demand money for jobs and education not war."
