MONEY FOR DETROIT!

For our schools, services, pensions, art, parks, homes and neighborhoods, for jobs for youth and the unemployed, and at higher wages—billions for our hurting city, not for war!

NO NEW U.S. WAR!

Hands off Ukraine and Venezuela!

Stop U.S. $upport for fascists

DEMONSTRATE!

Tuesday, March 18, 4:30 PM
Hart Plaza, Downtown Detroit

Ukrainian and Russian people oppose U.S. backed fascism in Ukraine

Ukrainian and Russian people oppose U.S. backed fascism in Ukraine

The Ukrainian and Russian people in this picture are resisting the imposition of a U.S. backed fascist dictatorship in Ukraine. The U.S. has collaborated and conspired with outright fascists to threaten the Venezuelan people’s chosen government and to overthrow the elected president of Ukraine and install a pro-U.S. regime. The neo-Nazis now running Ukraine openly flaunt the swastika and the Confederate flag. These forces have received billions and Washington has committed $10 billion more to the illegal government in Ukraine—money that we need to save our city! Sanctions, U.S. war ships in the Black Sea, U.S. fighter jets in countries bordering Ukraine—the war danger is real. Only the people can stop it.

CANCELLED:

Detroit-Protest for Palestine
Monday, Nov. 26th @ 4:00pm
Detroit-Windsor Tunnel (west side adjacent to Mariners Church)

From the organizers:

In light of the recent events in Gaza with the ceasefire, we have decided to shift gears from protest mode to awareness mode. We are including an information packet in this description to help you educate and familiarize yourself with the realities of Palestinian occupation. Although the protest has been canceled, please be advised that this is only the beginning of our awareness campaign. Stay tuned for more informational packets, events and emails.
-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-
The most common mistake pro-Palestinian activists make is to assume that every time a ceasefire is signed, the conflict is resolved. Unfortunately that is never the case as the occupation of Palestine is a consistent, day-to-day Zionist aggression against a civilian Palestinian population. Israel illegally occupies Palestinian lands, building walls and checkpoints, establishing its own colonies (settlements) on Palestinian lands, and effectively blockading a civilian population in an open-air prison (as is the case in Gaza). All this the Zionist regime does in direct violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention (www.icrc.org/ihl.nsf/full/380).

To gain a better understanding of how Israel manages to sustain its occupation, and what that means for Palestinian lives, we strongly recommend watching this documentary: Occupation 101 (www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_jvXnPG9Xc).

For those of us living in the West, it has become increasingly difficult to raise awareness on the plight of the Palestinians due to a strong pro-Zionist bias in the media. Additionally, the little coverage the media does provide is tainted with language and rhetoric that attempts to redefine the reality on the ground. For a better understanding of how media bias plays into this occupation, we recommend you watch: Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land (www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAN5GjJKAac).

If you would like more statistics and facts about how our tax dollars are being used to sustain Israel’s illegal occupation, please visit www.ifamericansknew.org. For additional resources on action items you can partake in, join the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement and learn how you can divest from occupation. Please visit www.BDSmovement.net for additional details.

Wyandotte Public Schools Administration Building
639 Oak St., Wyandotte, MI
((six blocks west of Biddle/Jefferson south of Ford St./Northline Rd.)

We urge you to join us on Thursday, Aug. 30 at the Wyandotte Public Schools Administration Building, 639 Oak St., Wyandotte (six blocks west of Biddle/Jefferson south of Ford St./Northline Rd.) at 10 AM sharp.

African American students and white friends, at the middle school, have been victims of racial threats, bullying and intimidation for over 14 months!  This situation has repeatedly been brought to the attention of the principal, the school board, the superintendent of schools and the police who have refused to do anything.  The cops have harassed the parents who brought the complaints.  One of those who threatened the children is now in jail – only because he assaulted a cop who went to talk to him. Several others, friends of his, are continuing the threats.

The parents have called for a picket line from 10 AM to 11 AM Thursday.  Be there to stand with the students and their parents – let Wyandotte know that we won’t put up with this. For more information call 313-680-5508.

U.S. / NATO – No War on Syria!

Stop Attacks on Iran!

Stop Drone Attacks!

Money for jobs & education – not war!

Wednesday – June 27 – 4:30 PM

Demonstrate at McNamara Federal Building
Michigan Ave. at Cass Ave. – Detroit

The United States, through the Pentagon and C.I.A,. along with its NATO allies and reactionary regimes in the Middle East, is waging war on the Syrian people.  The New York Times (6-21-12) admits that the CIA is arming the Syrian “rebels” at the Turkish border.

The goal is regime change. They care nothing about the people of Syria, nothing about “democracy.” They only want to make Syria a satellite of imperialism and to re-enslave the people of Syria.

The murderous assault on Libya last year showed that the only ones who benefit from these imperialist regime changes are the big oil companies, the banks and Zionist Israel. The threats and attacks on Iran are also for the benefit of U.S. imperialism. The progressive movement in the United States must stand up and say “NO!” to U.S.-war against Syria. We need jobs, education and health care – not war.
