By the Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign – 18 Nov 2010
The [following] video is produced by the Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign (MNBBC), a statewide organization calling for Minnesota to divest from Israel Bonds until Israel complies with international human-rights law. We are Palestinians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, students, professionals, parents, community members and allies working together to bring fair and honest Palestine-centric education to Minnesota, to support justice and human rights, and to examine our relationship as Minnesotans to Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
Minnesota’s investment in two Israel bonds supports Israel’s apartheid system in both Israel and the Palestinian Territories and enables widespread abuse of human rights. Israel Bonds finance infrastructure projects including settlement building on the Palestinian West Bank and in East Jerusalem; these settlements displace Palestinians from their own lands.
If you want Minnesota to divest from Israel too, no matter where you live, please SIGN OUR PETITION! at http://mn.breakthebonds.org.
