Palestine Contingent: Ferguson Weekend of Resistance

– September 27, 2014

“Solidarity does not mean our struggles are the same. Solidarity means all struggles matter.”

– Professor Robin D.G. Kelley at National Organizers’ Conference of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, September 21, 2014.

The murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has shone a spotlight on racism, police brutality and militarized policing in the United States. Resistance to Mike Brown’s killing was met with violent repression in the form of rubber bullets, tanks, and tear gas. As thousands of people, most of them young and black, took to the streets of Ferguson to resist and demand justice for Mike, more joined in solidarity around the country and world.

Community leaders in Ferguson and St. Louis are calling on people of conscience to join them for a Weekend of Resistance October 10-13 to demand justice for Mike Brown and all victims of police violence; to stand together to challenge the systemic racism faced by black and brown communities in Ferguson, St. Louis, and across the nation; to keep the pressure on for broad, comprehensive change. Local groups including the Organization for Black Struggle and the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee, joined by national groups listed below, are inviting those who support the Palestinian struggle for liberation to stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson as part of a Palestine contingent in response to the call. We recognize that none of us is free until all of us are free.

There will be a variety of activities happening throughout the weekend, led by local organizations on the ground in and around St. Louis, including: street actions, panel discussions, hip hop events, faith-based clergy-led events, and nonviolent direct action trainings.

Just a few specifics for the Palestine contingent:

  • Friday, October 10th: Panel discussion exploring the intersections of U.S. police practices and militarization around the world, including in Palestine.
  • Saturday, October 11th: Large national march at the historic old St. Louis courthouse (where Dred Scott was denied his freedom) with Palestine support contingent.
  • Monday, October 13th: Action focused on a target highlighting intersections of militarized policing in Ferguson and Palestine.

Please sign up here if you are interested in joining or supporting the Palestine contingent to Ferguson.

They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Just some friendly advice - perhaps it isn't a great idea to make broadbrush assumptions about things you can't prove, especially when they involve large groups of people. You simply don't know what anyone is thinking.

Since it's on yours, what donations have you made?

I'm having a hard time figuring out how the Palestinian issue and this Ferguson thing are related. I guess I'm slow.

Perhaps Hamas is on a recruitment drive. Needs a US following. They would go lock step with the anti-semitic group The New Black panthers .

Or the KKK, Stromfront, Aryan Nation, and quite a few others.

You still didn't answer my question, what donations have you made, since you've been following this for quite some time now.

Why are you ducking the question? You seem to be very keen on this issue, what have you done to help?
