Street Artist Performs to awaken others.
We must act now, before the massacres continue! Over 200 people were killed in Gaza on Saturday, December 27 in a series of Israeli attacks - with US-made and paid for weaponry - upon the Palestinian people. These cold-blooded killings come on top of a siege on Gaza that has killed hundreds by depriving them of medical care, deprived Gazans of electricity, power and fuel and attempted to strangle the life of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
The people of Gaza are standing steadfast in the face of these massacres but our voices must be heard to demand an immediate end to the massacres and an end to US aid to Israel! The Israeli military is promising more massacres - we must say no NOW!
The Marriott Marquis hosted a fundraiser for the Hebron Fund, which provides financial support for the expansion of settlements by the most extreme, violent Israeli settlers. Hebron’s settlers regularly attack Palestinian schoolchildren who are on their way to school as well as the international supporters escorting them.
The bombing rampage began as thousands of Palestinian children were in the streets on their way home from school. Palestinian parents were running frantically in the streets looking for their children as U.S.-provided F-16s and Apache helicopters rained down more than 100 tons bombs and missiles on Gaza. The U.S.-backed Israeli Occupation Force destroyed every security station in Gaza. AFP reported: "There was no space left in the morgue and bodies were piled up in the emergency room and in the corridors, as many of the wounded screamed in pain." Because of the U.S.-backed Israeli blockade and strangulation of the people of Gaza for the past 18 months there is little or no medicine to treat the wounded, electricity for hospitals, or food or clean water for much of the population.
Students at The New School have Occupied space within the school and have presented demands.

Video footage from student occupation at New School University at New York City. The video took from noon 12/18, shows there is now a large crowd occupying the outside of the occupation building chanting "let them in" as students continue to hold the occupation inside. Furthermore, the students have received a copy of a letter sent by President Bob Kerrey to the media where he claims that students assaulted security guards and have created a "security threat" at the university. His letter is full of outright lies and distortions, and only serves to further confirm the unilateral and unaccountable decision-making of President Bob Kerrey. The students encourage the public to watch and decide exactly who is using force against whom! For more information: *******www.newschoolinexile****/

New Orleans is on the front lines in the struggle against displacement and gentrification in the United States and in the struggle for our Right to the City. Many of the tactics used against the people of New Orleans are being or will be used on other cities across the country. In neighborhoods where low-income families live-- such as Harlem, the Lower East side and Chinatown, gentrification is destroying the fabric of our communities.
