Occupy AIPAC prepares for DC action

Source: Press TV

An alliance of activist groups in the United States has announced that they will occupy the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) headquarters in early March.

Anti-corporate protesters from over 120 groups are devising plans to occupy AIPAC headquarters in Washington, DC from March 2 to 6, the Occupy AIPAC website announced on Monday.

“With the Occupy movement that has swept the country demanding social and economic justice, many have concluded that AIPAC -- the powerful pro-Israeli government lobby that distorts US policy in the Middle East -- is a mandatory 'occupy target',” the Occupy AIPAC statement said.

“Right now AIPAC is trying to drag us into a disastrous war with Iran, just as they pushed the Iraq war. We must show our opposition by exposing AIPAC and standing against a war with Iran,” Occupy AIPAC added.

The Occupy AIPAC action has been scheduled to coincide with the Zionist lobby's policy conference in March 2012 and will include “teach-ins, cultural performances, protests and creative direct actions, and a sneak preview of the forthcoming film Roadmap to Apartheid.”

The endorsers of the Occupy AIPAC action include the Al-Nakba Awareness Project, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) - DC, American Muslims for Palestine, Americans United for Palestinian Human Rights, Artists Against Apartheid, Citizens for Palestinian Self-Determination, Coalition to Stop $30 Billion to Israel, CODEPINK Women For Peace, Cultures of Resistance Network, Free Palestine Movement, If Americans Knew,

International Solidarity Movement, It is Apartheid, Philly BDS, Proposition One Committee, Rachel Corrie Foundation, Radio Against Apartheid, The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid, Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East, US Boat to Gaza, US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, and We Are Wide Awake.
