Washington, DC, June 10-11 JOIN US IN PROTESTING THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION Tens of thousands to mobilize for protest rally and lobbying day on June 9th and 10th in Washington, DC.

The Council for the National Interest Foundation invites its supporters to Washington, DC, to attend The World Says NO to Israeli Occupation, a two-day mass mobilization that includes a protest rally on the West Lawn of the Capitol Building on Sunday, June 10th and a lobbying day on Capitol Hill the following day, Monday, June 11th. The weekend events will mark the 40th anniversary of Israel's military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza, and Golan Heights, which began with the June 1967 Arab-Israeli war and continues today under worsening conditions for Palestinians. The organizers include the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, a coalition of more than two hundred national and grassroots organizations that includes the CNI Foundation, and United for Peace and Justice, the largest American anti-war coalition.

The participating groups and individuals (see state organizations below) will make two demands:

* An end to U.S. military, economic, diplomatic, and corporate support for Israel's illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.

* A change in U.S. policy to one that supports a just peace between Palestinians and Israelis based on equality, human rights and international law, and the full implementation of all relevant UN resolutions.

You can learn more about getting to and from Washington and how to volunteer or make a donation supporting the June 10th and 11th events by visiting the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation website or by contacting them by telephone at 202-332-0994.

The picture at the left shows the US Campaign staff displaying, in front of the White House, a copy of the ad campaign set to go up in the Washington, DC metro system on May 13.
