Kindle Justice and Stand Against Islamophobia

Union Square East and 14th St (across from the Capital One Bank)

Join us on December 21 as we say No to Islamophobia, No to racism, Yes to justice.
Jews standing against Islamophobia and racism invite you to join us as we rekindle our commitment to justice in cities across the country and mark Chanukah.

On December 21, in cities and towns across the country, we will gather to stand up and continue to fight back. Now, more than ever, we must pledge to challenge injustice and build a society rooted in love and dignity for all people and communities. As we raise our candles, which together make a menorah, we will read aloud the commitments, including:

We refuse to be silent about anti-Muslim and racist hate speech and hate crimes.
We condemn state surveillance of the Muslim community.
We fight anti-Muslim profiling and racial profiling in all its forms.
We call for an end to racist policing #SayHerName #BlackLivesMatter.
We honor indigenous rights and support the resistance led by the
Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to protect their land and water.

We hope you will stand with us on December 21. Together, our calls for justice will reverberate across the country. #KindleJustice, #BlackLivesMatter, #SayHerName, #BlackTransLivesMatter, #WaterisLife, #NoDAPL #StandWithStandingRock

New York City: Rally to honor the life and legacy of Comandante Fidel Castro, December 4, 2016.

Cuba solidarity forces gathered on Sunday, December 4 in front of the Cuban Mission to the United Nations to honor the life and memory of Comandante Fidel Castro Ruz. This is the day Fidel’s remains were buried in Santiago de Cuba.

People brought flags, signs and flowers to show their love for Fidel and the Cuban people, and their many contributions to the struggle for social justice around the world. They chanted “Yo soy Fidel!” and “Fidel si, bloqueo no!”

While hundreds rallied across the street, people lined up in front of the Cuban Mission and around the block to sign a condolence book for the Cuban people.

Hasta siempre comandante!
