IN PHOTOS ~~ VIGIL IN NEW YORK TO STOP ARMS TO ISRAEL

As a preface, yesterday Mondoweiss posted a letter by Alan Levine written to Schumer & Gillibrand urging them to follow the Leahy law which states that countries who use arms against a people in a way that violates international law and creates war crimes will no longer receive arms or $ for arms from the US.

On Monday, October 6th, Jewish Voice for Peace NY and Jews Say No, with the support of several other organizations that support justice for Palestinians, held an 8 hour demonstration in front of the offices of Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand at 780 3rd Avenue. Demonstrators came and went in the course of the day but there were always between 50 and 80 people there. Palestinian food was served to the demonstrators and people passing by, many having questions to ask or just wanting to chat a bit. It was explained that welcoming with food was part of a strong Palestinian tradition. Informational leaflets were also distributed. Most participants carried signs throughout the day created by We Will Not Be Silent.
