Event Details

On Wednesday, December 6, the Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Washington) will join a coalition of organizations for #NoMuslimBanEver rally in downtown Seattle tomorrow. This week the U.S. Supreme Court stayed federal court injunctions that had, until today, largely prevented the Trump administration from implementing Muslim Ban 3.0’s visa restrictions.

Although this decision allows Muslim Ban 3.0 to go into effect now, the court could still find it unconstitutional at a later date. The rally is timed to coincide with the 9th Circuit Court’s Hearing of Muslim Ban case Hawaii v. Trump. Continue reading

TOMORROW: End the deadly exchange — no more US-Israel police partnerships!

Please join our brothers and sisters from JVP Seattle at this upcoming event.

Event Details

Join us in action to call on the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to end its deadly law enforcement exchanges between the U.S. and Israel.

Under the banner of “counter-terrorism,” the ADL’s police exchange programs send high-ranking U.S. law enforcement, FBI and ICE officials to train with Israeli police, military and intelligence agencies. These trainings transform Israel’s 70 years of dispossession and 50 years of Occupation into a marketing brochure for successful policing — reinforcing racist & militarized policing in Palestine/Israel and the U.S.

Our own Seattle Police participated in these programs in 2013 and 2015, and it’s time to make clear that these deadly exchanges must end. In Seattle, we need housing, services and support for targeted communities, not more militarized, racist policing. At the action, local activists will speak to these connections between the crisis of police violence here and Israeli occupation and apartheid abroad.

On the anniversary of Trump’s election, with highly visible white supremacist violence, islamophobia and antisemitism on the rise, let’s remind the ADL that it is time for everyone to choose a side — upholding the racist, violent status quo or fighting for a just future, in Seattle and in Palestine/Israel.
