“[Palestinian] civilians [in Jenin] were killed willfully or unlawfully [by the Israeli military]. . . . [which] used Palestinian civilians as ‘human shields’ and used indiscriminate and excessive force. . . . The abuses we documented in Jenin are extremely serious, and in some cases appear to be war crimes. . .” –Human Rights Watch, May 3, 2002 <http://hrw.org/press/2002/05/jenin0503.htm>
Israeli Consul General Alon Pinkus is coming to the AFL-CIO Executive Board to “express gratitude to the labor movement for its decades of support.”
Send a message that labor must stand with the Israeli peace movement and with millions of other people around the world to oppose Sharon?s brutal war on the Palestinians.
