End the Israeli Siege of Gaza NOW!

Stop the Collective Punishment of Palestinians

End US Military Aid to Israel

Friday, January 25,  4:15-5:30 PM
Corner of Summit and Snelling Aves, St. Paul

The Coalition for Palestinian Rights  (CPR) joins the international  call for emergency protests Jan 25 and
26 demanding an immediate end to the Israeli blockade and siege of Gaza.

More than 1.5 million Palestinian people living in Gaza are suffering from life-threatening shortages of
food, medicines, fuel and other vital necesities caused by the Israeli military’s sealing off of Gaza.
The Israeli occupation is in clear violation of international law, which strictly forbids collective
punishment and labels collective punishment a war crime.

Israel is continuing to excalate its attack on Gaza, killing more than 40 Palestinians just this past week
and wounding scores more.

Israel’s announcement, under international pressure, that it would allow one days worth of fuel to
re-start Gaza’s only power generating plant does not mean an end to the crisis; Gaza will remain desparate
as Israel continues to use the access to vitally needed fuel and other products as a weapon of occupation.

US miitary aid supports Israel’s occupation and enables the current escalating punishment.  We call on
the US govt. to end political and monetary aid to Israel.
