Jewish Opposition to the Israeli War Against the Palestinians

These are the emerging voices of a new generation of anti-war Jewish Americans, the millennials, those who reached adulthood around the year 2000. They are opposed to Israel’s ever escalating war in Gaza and the unending Occupation. They protested at the headquarters of the Jewish Federation of North America (JFNA) in Washington, DC. JFNA supports Israeli military actions, and says it does so in the name of all Jewish Americans. Which is not how these millennials see it. Video

Zionists, cops start trouble at huge Gaza march on White House, Washington Post

On the 2nd of August, organizers estimated 30,000 people took to the streets in solidarity with the hard-pressed residents of occupied Gaza, Palestine. There were at least three ugly incidents,one involving Zionist provocateurs, one involving the US Park Police, and one involving both. On the other hand, the massive march went from the White House to the lying, deceiving Washington Post, demanding they stop printing Israeli propaganda and tell the truth about Gaza. Upon arrival, coffins were stacked against the windows of the Washington Post's building. We shall see if that makes it into tomorrow's print edition.

Thousands march on CBP, White House demanding end to deportations

On the 2nd of August, thousands of migrants and their supporters gathered on the Mall before marching first on Customs and Border Patrol's headquarters, then on Obama's White House. They were demanding nothing less than "deferred action" by executive order in every last deportation case. Security guards at CBP freaked out when protesters marched onto the plaza of the Ronald Reagan building, aggressively ordering people back. Protest marshalls called people back, no doubt fearing that any arrests stemming from a confrontation would seriously endanger undocumented participants.

On the 31st of July, 112 people were arrested in a civil disobediance against what the Sisters of Mercy called "Obama's inhuman immigration enforcement policies."
