    Rally for Net Neutrality in L.A.

    On the campaign trail in 2008, candidate Obama visited Google headquarters in Silicon Valley and pledged to "take a back seat to no one" in his commitment to Net Neutrality.

    Since then he has appointed two FCC chairmen — Julius Genachowski and Tom Wheeler — who have failed to live up to the president's pledge.

    On July 23, Obama will return to California for a big fundraiser and we want to remind him how much we all care about the open Internet. That's why we're holding a big rally in L.A. to get the message out.

    Here are the details:

    WHAT: Rally for Net Neutrality 
    WHEN: Wed., July 23, 4:00–7 p.m. 
    WHERE: Hancock Park neighborhood (I'll send you the exact address once you RSVP.) 
    RSVP: Click here:  http://bit.ly/1ktpeyJ if you can make it. 
    BRING: Pink signs or banners to show your support for the open Internet.

    With the FCC considering rules that would gut Net Neutrality protections, it's critical that Obama stand up for the open Internet. Now is the time to take to the streets and show the world that we refuse to settle for anything less than real Net Neutrality.

    Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles, CA

    DEMONSTRATION AGAINST GAZA WAR

    From:             LA Jews for Peace
    Contacts:       Jeff Warner, 213-405-1494; cell: 562-477-1637
                            Jordan Elgrably, 310.402.8866
                            email:  info@LAJewsforPeace.org • http://lajewsforpeace.org


                        
    The demonstration takes place Friday morning in front of the Israeli consulate, all welcome. Demonstrators are asked to dress in dark clothing. Please do not bring flags.


    Demands      Ceasefire Now and End Blockade of Gaza
    ·
          LA Jews for Peace demands a cease-fire now to stop the killing of civilians.  As of July 22, Israeli has killed almost 600 Palestinians in Gaza through attacks from air, ground, and sea.  According to the UN, most of those killed are civilians, including women and children (http://www.imemc.org/article/68429 ).  Two Israeli civilians have been killed.  

    Palestinian rockets must stop — they are aimed at civilian targets and are a war crime.

    Israeli bombardment of civilian targets must stop because they, too, are war crimes.  LA Jews for Peace concurs with B’Tselem, the Israeli human rights NGO, that Israel must “immediately cease the bombardment of inhabited homes, neighborhoods and areas in the Gaza Strip” (http://www.btselem.org/20140721_btselem_calls_on_government_to_cease_bombardment ).  Bombing houses and hospitals with people in them is a war crime, and issuing a warning does not make an attack on civilians acceptable in either international or Jewish law.

    ·
          LA Jews for Peace also demands that Israel and Egypt end its blockade of the Gaza Strip.  Over seven years, the blockade has destroyed the Gaza economy by preventing the free movement of people and the import and export of agricultural and manufactured goods. The blockade is the root cause of Palestinian frustration that underlies the primitive rocket attacks on Israel.  

    President Obama wrote to the Haaretz Israel Conference on Peace earlier this month that “Peace is the only path to true security for Israel and the Palestinians” (http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/israel-peace-conference/1.603324).  Ending the blockade of Gaza is a critical step to peace, and in the short run give hope to the people of Gaza so they will not attack Israel in frustration.

    ·
          LA Jews for Peace demands an end to the U.S. government’s unconditional diplomatic, financial, and military support of Israel that enables the occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza.  Israel’s use of American supplied weapons, like F-16 jets and Apache helicopters, in its aggressive war on Gaza civilians violates United States laws – namely the Arms Export Control Act and the Foreign Assistance Act.  It also time for the Obama Administration to finally support a binding United Nations Security Council resolution to end both the fighting and the siege of Gaza.

    The New Peace Center in Culver City

    Medea Benjamin talks about Drones and disrupting business as usual in DC

    The LAPD is debating the Drone issue, join Medea Benjamin and local community leaders to stop Drones in LA. 

    Did you know that a drone can be as small as a bumble bee, that local law enforcement offices are eager to be the first to have their own fleet of drones here in the US and that Obama has granted the CIA the authority to kill people in Pakistan and Yemen using drone “signature strikes” based solely on suspicious behavior?

    Medea Benjamin’s new book: Drone Warfare, Killing by Remote Control is a well-researched investigation of these deadly weapons and how we can build a movement to stop them. Come hear Medea speak!

    The evening of conversation and inspiration will be hosted by Jodie Evans, co-founder of CODEPINK.

    Presentation of 2014 Peace Prize

    On display an award winning art piece inspired by CODEPINK’s work to end Drone attacks in Pakistan.

    People's Climate March

    This is an invitation to change everything.

    In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history.

    Together, we’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.

    To change everything, we need everyone on board. September 20-21 in New York City. Join us.
