Emergency Rally: Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine!
December 7, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
In the wake of Trump’s announcement declaring U.S. support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and the moving of the U.S. embassy there, the Coalition for Justice in Palestine (CJP) is calling for a protest tomorrow, Thursday, December 7th, at 5 PM, at the Federal Plaza (Adams and Dearborn) in downtown Chicago.
This unilateral move is further proof of the fact that Trump and the U.S. are not, and have never been, “honest brokers for peace” in the Middle East or anywhere else.
Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims across the Middle East are rejecting Trump and U.S. foreign policy, and already rising up in protest of this violation of international law and Palestinian self-determination. Palestinians are calling for 3 days of rage, and other people of conscience around the world are joining in.
The Coalition for Justice in Palestine, along with Jewish Voice for Peace and many others, ask you to join us.
