Join JVP-Boston to call for an end to US-Israel police partnerships
From Boston to Palestine, police & military won’t keep us safe!
Join us in action on Wednesday, Nov 8, downtown to call on the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to end their deadly law enforcement exchanges between the U.S. and Israel.
Location: Downtown Boston — final meet-up location will be updated right before event!
Timing: Wednesday, Nov 8, [list time]
Access: The action will be outdoors, on sidewalks with wheelchair access, and with the access limitations of downtown Boston. Contact [email protected] with questions.
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 Boston Police participated in these programs. It’s time to make clear that these deadly exchanges must end. In Boston, we need housing, services and support for targeted communities, not more militarized, racist policing.
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 Boston and in Palestine/Israel.
