PFLP: Escalate the Resistance! Occupy the Occupier’s Embassies and Consulates!

Now, it is time to escalate the international resistance. The tanks are rolling into Gaza. The occupier’s embassies and consulates must not be allowed to operate as normal and engage in business as usual while its forces are conducting a murderous occupation.

U.S. imperial power must not continue uninterrupted around the world while it provides the economic, political and military support that runs the killing machine – in fact, the U.S. imperialists’ Congress have just passed a bill to provide more money and more funding to make the occupation’s killing machine even more lethal against the Palestinian and Arab people.

  • Occupy Israeli embassies and consulates – shut them down, close their doors, prevent them from engaging in business as usual. The occupation state must be entirely boycotted and isolated, and fully rejected as the illegitimate settler-colonial occupier that it is.
  • Occupy U.S. embassies and consulates – U.S. imperialism is the principal sponsor of the killer occupation in Palestine and it must be held accountable by the people of the world for its crimes, not only in Palestine but throughout the world.
  • Take the profits from the hands of the killer corporations – Already protesters are confronting these killer corporations like Boeing, Lockheed Martin and G4S, facing arrest in U.S. cities such as Chicago. These corporations must face consequences – their operations interrupted and shut down. No more profits from Palestinian blood!

Zoom Detroit: Palestine solidarity demonstration, July 13, 2014.
"The demonstration in Detroit today drew links between the shut-off of water in the city and the denial of water resources to the people of Gaza and Palestine in general. The crowd of more than 1,000 marched up Woodward Ave. for a rally at the park located at the corner of Warren Ave. in Midtown."

Houston: Defying racists, group welcomes refugees

By Gloria Rubac

When some young Houston activists discovered that a racist, anti-immigrant group called Stop the Magnet was going to be on a pedestrian bridge over a busy freeway again, the Women and Children Welcoming Committee was formed.

We showed up at 6 a.m. the next day, one hour before they were to appear, and took up the best spots for traffic to see our colorful signs welcoming any unaccompanied minors to Houston.

Around 9 a.m., we heard that armed racists were on the way. Only two got onto the walkway, carrying big guns, but it was a bit intimidating because at about the same time, the slew of cops who had been there for hours seemed to disappear. Ironically, one of the men carrying a gun was wearing a kilt, so it was likely that at some point he or his family were immigrants from Scotland. Yet he had a big sign reading, “Secure our border.”

Socialist Korea: Foreign Ministry Spokesman Blasts Israel’s Military Attacks on Palestine

Pyongyang, July 15 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA Tuesday in connection with the fact that Israel’s reckless military actions have caused bloodshed again in Palestine:

Israel conducted a large-scale air raid against Gaza Strip by mobilizing dozens of fighters and copters while groundlessly linking the death of three young Israelis who went missing in June with Palestine. Since July 13 it has escalated the ground forces’ attack.

Israeli military attacks have so far claimed over 100 lives of Palestinians in Gaza Strip and leveled hundreds of public buildings and dwelling houses to the ground.

We bitterly denounce Israel’s brutal killings of many defenseless Palestinians through indiscriminate military attacks on peaceable residential areas in Palestine as they are unpardonable crimes against humanity.

Upbeat under the patronage of the U.S., Israel is working hard to contain the resistance forces and create difficulties in the activities of the unified national government of Palestine through reckless military attacks, copying the high-handed and arbitrary practices of the U.S. in the international arena. But this is nothing but a pipe dream.

Israel should immediately stop all illegal military actions against Palestine and respond to the demand of the world peace-loving people including the Arab people for a comprehensive and fair solution to the Mid-east issue.
