Anti-Israel Activists Planning Multi-City ‘Blockade’ on April 15th With Aim of ‘Causing the Most Economic Impact’

2024-04-12 06:00:57

Anti-Israel activists are planning a multi-city protest that will block streets, ports and other choke points with the goal of causing disruption and economic pain.

The plan is to do this in cities throughout America and around the world.

Organizers have set up a website to plan their actions:

Coordinated Economic Blockade to Free Palestine

A proposal to coordinate a multi-city economic blockade on April 15th in solidarity with Palestine recently received overwhelming commitments to participate around the US and internationally.

The proposal states that in each city, we will identify and blockade major choke points in the economy, focusing on points of production and circulation with the aim of causing the most economic impact, as did the port shutdowns in recent months in Oakland, California and Melbourne, Australia, as just a few examples.

There is a sense in the streets in this recent and unprecedented movement for Palestine that escalation has become necessary: there is a need to shift from symbolic actions to those that cause pain to the economy.

The left-wing site Popular Resistance is promoting this:

Mutual Solidarity Agreement for April 15

We will act in solidarity with each other in the face of attacks from the media, politicians and the police and the Zionist project. We will support each other in the following ways:

If one city faces police repression, other cities will extend or expand their blockades or initiate other actions in response if able to the best of their abilities and capacity.

We will not attack each other or each other’s actions on social media or to the press. We will hold a post-action debrief so that we can raise principled critiques among ourselves in a constructive manner rather than publicly.

Every city will take responsibility for choosing and planning their own local actions. Fellow organizers will not discourage or denounce each others plans because solidarity means affinity, not ownership.

If you have any travel plans for Monday, you might want to adjust your schedule accordingly.
