We call on the U.S. President and Congress to suspend all military and foreign aid, including loans and grants, to Israel until Israel withdraws from the Occupied Territories, dismantles the separation wall in the Occupied West Bank including East Jerusalem, ends its siege of Gaza and dismantles settler colonies and systemic apartheid toward its non-Jewish citizens.

  • Say Free Palestine on Saint Patrick's Day

By Matthew Hoh, April 17, 2024

I gave a Saint Patrick’s Day speech at a rally for Palestine today. Last year, I spent Saint Patrick’s Day standing in a bar with a fellow Marine veteran. In 2010, he had been a mortar man with Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, in Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. In a few months, more than one in five of those Marines and sailors were casualties. Thirteen years later, he still didn’t know what it was for.

The U.S. role in the slaughter in Gaza is massively worse than you might think.

As two-time Green Party presidential nominee Ralph Nader has written recently at Naked Capitalism and Common Dreams, the Palestinian death toll in the Gaza strip is likely being under-reported by a factor of ten.

The Green Party of the United States called on President Biden to demand an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, dismissing his call for a humanitarian pier as grossly ineffective in responding to the death and suffering of Palestinians.

I am Michael Dublin, husband, father, teacher and Green Party candidate for US House, District 2. Even if you are not in my district, I have an important message for you. 

My opponent in District 2 is Deborah Ross. Although 70% of the residents of District 2 want a ceasefire in Palestine, Ross will not support such a resolution in Congress. This is because like most of Congress, she is afraid of AIPAC, the American-Israeli Political Action Committee. AIPAC should be registered as an agent of a foreign government, but gets away with its heavy-handed influence on elections because the US government won’t publicly identify the committee’s biases, which are detrimental to the people of the United States. 

Despite local Zionists trying to spread false rumors that we have canceled this action, we have not.  See you on Tuesday!

By now it’s pretty clear that the Democratic Party is not going to stand up against genocide. Locally, it’s been months and we’re still waiting on a ceasefire resolution from City Council. And even worse, a Democratic-led County of Monroe has the nerve to fly a genocidal flag in front of the building.

Hey Y'all! Michael Dublin here. I want to give big props to JVP and other protesters who shut down a Raleigh street in an effort to get the incumbent US Representative, Deborah Ross, to ask for a Congressional cease-fire resolution to stop the slaughter of Palestinians by Zionist Israeli Forces.

On Thursday, February 22 upwards of 3,000 people gathered and marched in midtown Manhattan to show the popular opposition to the American Israel Public Affairs Council  (AIPAC). The march started at the north end of Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, marched down 2nd Avenue, to 45 Street - blocking traffic for most of the way, then up 3rd Avenue to 49th Street where we demonstrated in from of AIPAC's Manhattan office. It was cold, yet the crowd was vibrant.

Black voters feel trapped in the duopoly but other groups are giving a master class in political courage. The Abandon Biden campaign shows the way.

Face the Nation Host Margaret Brennan: Thasin, you did change your mind on the president. Why?

Thasin: I was a champion for Joe Biden until October 7. I feel he disowned us, disenfranchised us, with his stance on Gaza.

Brennan: What do you mean by that?

The Green Party of New York and about 125 upstate New Yorkers have signed onto a letter demanding Rep. Elise M. Stefanik resign from her seat representing the 21st Congressional District because of her support of Israel in the violence in Gaza.

It's got the support of Ralph Nader, 89, a repeat third-party, then independent presidential candidate from nearly 30 years ago, and his Washington-based group, the Center for Study of Responsive Law.
