Context of Khader Adnan’s hunger strike.
Palestinian minister says #KhaderAdnan has ended hunger strike, will be released April 17, no change to release date. #KhaderAdnan announced that he is ending his hunger strike.
Be careful…Israel has a history of reneging on deals like this.
Here is a link to a list of companies that support Israel.
Also the site provides proof on how the companies support Israel financially. As part of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement, boycotting these products is the first step. This is the least (seriously the least) we can do to support and help the Palestinians that must live under the Israeli Occupation.
Monday, February 20 - 4:30 to 7:30 pm
800 2nd Avenue, Manhattan
Existence is Resistance and Al Awda are calling for all to support our brother Khader Adnan, demand his release and stand together in solidarity this Monday outside the Israeli Embassy in New York.
Protesters charge police with shields in attempted building occupation — Oakland, CA
Police fired what appeared to be smoke grenades on Saturday at a group of hundreds of Occupy Oakland protesters who tore down a chain-link fence as they tried to gain entrance to the city’s shuttered convention center.
The scuffles marked the latest confrontation between police and Occupy protesters seeking to regain lost momentum in their movement against economic inequality after authorities cleared protest camps around the country late last year.
Occupy Oakland organizers had vowed to take over the abandoned building to establish a new headquarters for their movement and draw attention to homelessness in a move seen as a challenge to authorities who have blocked similar efforts before.
But near the convention center, several dozen police officers declared an unlawful assembly and confronted the demonstrators at the fence, firing smoke canisters into the crowd after telling them to disperse through loudspeakers.
The crowd fell back as the smoke hit, but then made a second push toward the fence, where they were held back by police. Some crowd members tried to circumvent the police line, and surged toward police as more smoke canisters were fired, carrying shields made of plastic garbage cans and corrugated metal.
“The City of Oakland welcomes peaceful forms of assembly and freedom of speech, but acts of violence, property destruction and overnight lodging will not be tolerated,” police said in a statement.
Police said they had yet to use tear gas, but made no mention of smoke canisters. They said “use of gas may occur if necessary.”
Protesters in Oakland loosely affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York last year have repeatedly clashed with police during a series of marches and demonstrations.
In October, former Marine Scott Olsen was left in critical condition with a head injury following a confrontation with police on the streets of Oakland in which tear gas was deployed.
Organizers say Olsen was struck in the head by a tear gas canister. Authorities opened an investigation into that incident but have not said how they believe he was hurt.
With Occupy protests around the country, things are heating up. With disbursement of tear gas and pepper spray by police, how are regular people able to keep safe?
Normally, one would buy a gas mask, but given cost, bulkiness and being a target when wearing one, this might not be the best option. Based on a pamphlet floating around the internet, you can make your own
primitivebasic gas mask out of some stuff you have lying around the house.
WARNING: Tear gas is no joke, it burns, hurts and makes you cry for your mommy.
can we talk about how I hate the way people like to use the word primitive?
