On November 4, 2011, ‘Occupy Boston’ protestors stormed the lobby of the Israeli consulate to stage a sit-in. The activists had two demands: the liberation of Palestine and the departure of Israeli diplomats from the US. The protestors chanted slogans such as, “Not another nickel! Not another dime! No more money for Israel’s crimes!” and “Viva, viva, Palestina!” and “Long live the intifada!” This video is our response to that sit-in.
Polls show that over the last several decades 36% of Americans stand in support of Israel. That number has stayed consistent over the years, no matter what administration is in office or which way the political winds are blowing. We all have our day jobs and can’t ‘Occupy DC’, but just so everyone knows, we are the 36%! We’ve all got our reasons. What’s your reason?
