My heart weeps for those who deeply feel the effects of climate change. If you don’t see it, your children and grand-children will.

A green way is the only way to live.

A War on Campus? Northeastern University Suspends Students for Justice in Palestine Chapter

The Northeastern University chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine has become the latest student group to face reprimand for organizing around the Palestinian cause. Northeastern has suspended the group until 2015, barring it from meeting on campus and stripping it of any university funding. The move comes just weeks after student activists distributed mock eviction notices across the campus during Israeli Apartheid Week. The notices were intended to resemble those used by Israel to notify Palestinians of pending demolitions or seizures of their homes. Democranow Now speaks to Northeastern Students for Justice in Palestine member Max Geller and Ali Abunimah, co-founder of The Electronic Intifada and author of the new book, “The Battle for Justice in Palestine.” His new book includes a chapter tiled “The War on Campus.”

I WENT TO UCLA TWO WEEKS AGO TO LISTEN TO A PANEL OF ACTIVISTS, ARTISTS, PROFESSORS AND WRITERS WHO TOOK A TRIP TO PALESTINE. THEY TOLD THE STORIES OF CURRENT DAY APARTHEID, MURDER, HATE AND THE SUFFERING OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE AT THE HANDS OF ISRAELI CIVILIANS ALONG WITH GOVERNMENT.

IT IS AN ATROCITY THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT COLORED LICENSE PLATES FOR ROADS WHICH ONLY ISRAELI’S MAY CROSS, THE EVICTIONS FORCED ON PALESTINIANS AND THE CRIMES AGAINST A PEOPLE WHO ONCE HAD A LARGE MASS OF LAND, NOW TAKEN FROM THEM.

THIS COUNTRY, THE UNITED STATES AIDES ISRAEL. OR GOVERNMENT IS CORRUPT AND IS THE TRUE FACE OF EVIL. THE VIOLATIONS OF MANKIND HERE ON U.S SOIL AND ABROAD GO WITH NO PUNISHMENT.

LET THE TRUTH BE KNOW, DON’T BE BLINDED BY THE LIES TOLD ON MAINSTREAM NEWS. DON’T JOIN IN THE HATRED OF OTHERS.
