      Berkeley Students Call for a National Day of Action -- May 1st and/or 2nd,
      2002

      Students for Justice in Palestine -- UC Berkeley, April 18, 2002

      During the national day of action on April 9th, close to 10,000 students
      participated in actions on US colleges and universities to demand an end
      to the Israeli occupation and demand that academic institutions divest
      from holdings in Israel. At Berkeley, 1200 activists protested and 79 face
      charges for participating in non- violent civil disobedience.

      The Israeli military incursions show no signs of abating, while the
      reports of the massacres at Jenin and Nablus only point to the vicious,
      brutal, and murderous campaign of the Israeli government against the
      Palestinian people.

      As a consequence, it is important, more than ever, that students and
      activists all across the country come out against the Israeli occupation
      and stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people.

      Students for Justice in Palestine at UC Berkeley calls on all activists to
      join in national actions on May 1st or 2nd (whichever date works best for
      activists on individual campuses)* on the three following demands:

      1) End the Occupation, No to the Settlements, Right of Return for all
      Refugees 2) Divestment of all University/College Holdings in Israel, End
      Aid to Israel 3) Drop all Charges Against Campus Activists Arrested on
      April 9th.

      We make this call in the interests of solidarity and urgency and in the
      absence of a more democratic process to initiate this call, and we stand
      in support of proposals for increasing the participation of activists in
      future calls.

      In order to coordinate national media and to develop a more thorough
      network, we ask that you email us information about actions that you plan
      on your campus. Please send announcements, press releases, or any other
      contact information to justiceinpalestine@...

      Yours in Solidarity and in Struggle, Students for Justice in Palestine --
      UC Berkeley
