      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_
      (http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=gEofH5weoEehtLRPzG9rdqUqtc6Y3kk9) .
      * _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.
