November 16th - Third Friday Protest to End the Siege of Gaza; Stop
the Bombing 4:30 - 6pm; 19th & JFK Blvd. in Philadelphia. Since 2009
the International Action Center has been holding 3rd Friday protests
outside the Israeli Consulate in Philadelphia at 19th & JFK Blvd.
These demonstrations were started in response to the brutal bombing of
Gaza by Israel that started in Dec. 2008 killing over 1,400
Palestinian people, mainly children. Israel appears to be renewing
this brutal assault on Gaza, with new threats to cut off power, food
and water to the people in what if virtually an open-air prison
because of the relentless blockade. U.S. tax money is paying for this
war to the tune of over $3 billion a year. Now, more than ever, we
call on you to renew your commitment to end this blockade and stop the
U.S./Israeli war on the people of Palestine. Enough is enough! Come
out this Friday - November 16th from 4:30 to 6pm at the intersection
of JFK Blvd. and 19th St. Bring your signs and banners.

Are you involved in the Sandy relief effort? Do you want to be?
Organizers from all over the country and beyond have been gathering on
these Occupy Sandy NJ nightly calls to download time-sensitive
information and coordinate responses. The network is growing very
rapidly. Join us. Together, we will overcome.

Union are coming to Philly to talk about: Transforming their union
into a democratic organization Fighting against the austerity-driven
cuts to public education and the severe impact on our most vulnerable;
Building alliances with parents and students to win; Implications for
teachers and activists locally. We face a huge struggle ahead and the
time to come together and organize is now - come out to learn from
Chicago's courageous leaders and share your own ideas and experiences

Discussion, & Activist Networking event- International House - 3701
Chestnut St - Join us for a huge Philly screening and discussion of
the new documentary by Philly filmmaker, activist, and attorney, Matt
Pillischer. "Broken On All Sides is a compelling documentary
addressing racial inequities within our criminal justice system and
its devastating collateral consequences. It is an excellent resource
to use in educating, motivating, and empowering your group,
organization, or community on this critical issue." - James E.
Williams, Jr., Public Defender & Chair of the Task Force on Racial and
Ethnic Bias in the Criminal Justice System

On Monday, November 19th @ 10 AM come out to support Shawn McMonigle
(aka The Swan) at his trial at the Criminal Justice Center (13th and
Filbert.) Shawn was unjustly arrested during Occupy Philadelphia's May
Day 'Strike the Banks' march in front of Wells Fargo. His crime:
fearlessly speaking up against a system that exploits people and the
planet and benefits only the wealthy few.
