Greetings from the Barnard-Columbia International Socialist Organization:
We hope everyone has finally wrapped up all their finals and is taking a much-deserved break. If you’re in New York, please join us at a protest on Monday marking the two year anniversary of Israel’s attack on Gaza. Israel’s massacre levelled many parts of the Gaza strip, destroyed major infrastructure (including 32 UN-run schools and Gaza’s only power plant), decimated agricultural production and ultimately killed nearly 1400 Palestinians.
Two years ago we were in the streets of New York many times as this horror unfolded. Students in the UK and US occupied their campuses to demand that their schools break ties with Israel, and at Columbia we restarted a Palestine solidarity group which has now evolved into Students for Justice in Palestine. Help us keep that spirit of activism and resistance alive on this anniversary.
