"Sudan, the geographically
largest country in Africa and the home of
35 million people, has been devastated by
U.S. attacks for the past 15 years. In
the early 90s the U.S. government
declared Sudan to be a "state
sponsor of terrorism" because the
government of Sudan does not support
Israel. The U.S. government imposed
sanctions against Sudan.
"US sanctions and trade boycott
escalated in severity several times
during the 90s and 00s and damaged the
Sudanese economy causing immense human
suffering. Throughout the 90s the US
government armed and funded the SPLA
rebels in the south of Sudan in a war
against the Sudanese government, and
against rival southern groups, in which
millions of persons were killed or
displaced. Millions of southern refugees
fled from the SPLA and now live in
Khartoum, the northern capital. The
culmination of US support for war in
Sudan was the so-called "Sudan Peace
Act", signed by George W Bush in
2002, which allocated one hundred million
dollars per year to the SPLA."

On Sunday May 2, 2010 Boston and Cambridge
activists protested the so-called Israeli Innovation
Weekend (IIW) at the Museum of Science in Boston
through multiple, disparate actions. IIWs sponsors,
including the Consulate General of Israel to New
England, were left flummoxed by the activists efforts
and largely unable to prevent their successful,
multi-pronged disruption of the event.
Protesters targeted IIW because it was part of a
state-sponsored campaign to greenwash Israels
discriminatory, apartheid regime and atrocious human
rights record. IIW was officially sponsored by the
Israeli Consulate, which also played a major role in
funding and planning the event; nearly half of IIWs
steering committee was composed of Consulate staff and
the Consulate was one of the top donors.
On May 17, 1968, nine men and women entered the

publicized trial, sentenced to jail.

~Brendan Walsh, a planner for the Catonsville Nine
protest, which quickly sparked similar acts of
defiance from Camden, to the Bronx, to Milwaukee and
Pasadena, and became a defining moment in anti-war
activism during the Vietnam War era. "It
became a turning point in the anti-war movement,”
Walsh said of the protest.

You Can (deal with Israeli apartheid) Many parallels can be drawn between South
Africa and Israel. One such parallel is the
requirement for all residents over the age of 16 in
the Apartheid State of Israel to indicate whether ID
holders are Jewish or not by adding the persons Hebrew
date of birth. Chris McGreal of the Guardian put it so
well when he said that the cards in effect determine
where they ["Israeli citizens"] are
permitted to live, what government welfare programs
they have access to, and how they are likely to be
treated by civil servants and policemen.

There is an astonishing amount of ignorance about the basic facts of the so-called Arab-Israeli conflict.

This footage was shot in the late 1940s to educate the public about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who had been made homeless as a result of the violence and intimidation that accompanied the founding of the state of Israel.
What most Palestinians thought would be a temporary dislocation lasting only a few weeks at most became permanent. Homeless with just the clothes on their backs, they were left in the desert without food, water, and medical care to die.

gaining asylum in the United States.

on Bush to extradite the murderer Luis
Posada to Venezuela. Tell George W. Bush

Luis Posada Carriles is a notorious
anti-Cuba terrorist and a killer. Posada
was convicted in Panama after being
caught in November 2000 with 33 pounds of
C-4 explosives intended for assassinating
Cuban President Fidel Castro. Now, the
U.S. government is entertaining inviting
this man, who poses such a great and
vicious danger, to receive safe haven
from prosecution in the United States. It

OVER! A Spring of Resistance
"Spring 2006 will be the 4th spring
of the war and occupation of Iraq.
The 4th spring of bombs over Baghdad and
body bags full of young Iraqis and
working-class Americans. The 4th spring
of tyranny and torture in the name of
freedom. The 4th spring of the armed
robbery of the Iraqi people, and the poor
people and young people of Boston.
So this spring, we, the Free Youth
Network, ask you to join us in a campaign
of nonviolent direct action to confront,
disrupt, and break down the war machine.

call for a direct action campaign
targeting all local links to the war and

Innocent Voices, by Luis
Mandoki. Released Oct 21st. Now
playing in theaters country wide.
Do not miss this incredibly powerful and
heartfelt new film. More than 300,000
children presently serve in armies in
over 40 countries. "This film has
the ability to reach into the mainstream
of this country and raise the collective
conscientiousness of millions of
Americans who have been lied to about the
true nature of U.S. foreign policy."
Based on the true story of screenwriter
Oscar Torres's embattled childhood, Luis
Mandoki's Innocent Voices is the poignant
tale of Chava (Carlos Padilla), an
eleven-year-old boy who suddenly becomes
the "man of the house" after
his father abandons the family in the
middle of a civil war.
In El Salvador in the 1980s, the
government's armed forces are already
recruiting twelve year olds, rousting
them out of their classes at the local
middle school. If he is lucky, Chava has
just one year of innocence left, one year
before he, too, will be conscripted to
fight the government's battle against the
peasant rebels of the FMLN. ...
