facebook event page:!/events/207196606050041/

A coalition of peace, human rights, and Palestine solidarity organizations will hold a demonstration outside the annual Oregon fundraiser dinner of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) at 4:00pm on Sunday, April 29th. The demonstration will protest AIPAC’s role in promoting a military attack on Iran. The protest is also calling for an end to U.S. military aid to the Israeli apartheid government, which refuses to halt the construction of illegal settlements and routinely violates the human rights of Palestinians living under Occupation. Israel controls the lives of more than 4 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and denies them the right to vote or to exercise their right to self-determination.
