Take Action Now to Stop Israel’s Attacks on Gaza
Since November 8, Israel has killed at least 21 Palestinians in the
occupied and besieged Gaza Strip, the majority of whom are civilians, including
children. In addition, 3 Israeli civilians have been killed by a Palestinian
Israel's attacks against the Gaza Strip are being committed with U.S.
weapons given to Israel as military aid by the U.S. taxpayer. These weapons are
being misused by Israel in violation of the U.S. Arms Export Control Act
to commit grave human rights abuses of Palestinians.
We’re asking you to take three actions right now:
* Join an _emergency protest_
(http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=K+oFVO6Nd8svUmRbojV+5aUqtc6Y3kk9) or organize one
yourself. There are dozens of emergency actions planned across the country which
you can _view here_
* _Write and call President Obama_
(http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=cJDckRFDtuyRc12s/PBrf6Uqtc6Y3kk9) demanding that he
exert diplomatic pressure on Israel for an immediate cease-fire and
initiate an investigation into Israel’s misuse of U.S. weapons to commit human
rights abuses of Palestinians.

Stand up for economic justice with Wal-Mart workers on Black Friday
Here we go again. The frenzy to buy is about to begin when corporate
stores are looking to make big profits forcing their employees to work long
hours and miss holiday family time. It’s not that the employees don’t want to
work, but what about living wages, decent working conditions, good benefits
like healthcare and basic respect. Perhaps the most egregious example of
worker abuse is Wal-Mart where some workers after _three years only make
$8.90 an hour_
(http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=bqI0xnJnyl3AU6NIj5BQrqUqtc6Y3kk9) and healthcare deductions will increase in
January with no raise in wages. Workers are literally striking back and they
need our help.
Stand with Wal-Mart strikers on Black Friday. Support these workers in
their efforts to take care of their families and work in a safe and respectful
environment. Check out these sites to find out how you can help.
