August 12 Marches in DC, SF, LA, Seattle

Permits have been obtained for Lafayette Park directly in front of the White House for the opening rally of the mass demonstration in Washington DC on August 12. There has been an amazing response to this call for a national emergency action to protest the U.S.-Israeli war against the Palestinian and Lebanese people. The streets around the White House will fill up with a sea of protestors on August 12. Read the call to action for August 12: http://answer.pephost.org/site/News2?abbr=ANS_&page=NewsArticle&id=7876

There will be sister demonstrations on August 12 for those on the West Coast who are unable to travel to Washington D.C. The West Coast demonstrations will take place in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Open Letter to United for Peace and Justice
Gabriele Zamparini
July 22, 2006

In your e-mail you remind your supporters of the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s call for an immediate ceasefire. Immediately after you have the impudence to write: “Yesterday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki condemned the Israeli aggression and called on the world to take action.”

Among all the heads of States and Governments you could mention [the entire world but the Axis Washington – London – Tel Aviv] why did you choose the PUPPET Prime Minister of Occupied Iraq?. . . .

Your letter to “Dear Ambassador Bolton” continues: “We are gravely concerned about the loss of life on all sides. We condemn all attacks on civilians, and call for the release of political prisoners and POWs held on all sides in this conflict.” A masterpiece of hypocrisy. . . .

Your letter continues: “Hezbollah’s crossing of the Israeli border to capture two soldiers may have violated the 1949 Armistice between Israel and Lebanon.” Spreading Israeli propaganda must be the main goal of United for Peace and Justice. The two Israeli soldiers were captured in Lebanon and the “cross-border operation” is just another myth coming directly from Tel Aviv. . . .

But as tradition wants, you left the best for the end: “Help us continue to do this critical work: Make a donation to UFPJ today.”
