E-Newsletter: January 2010

Dear BACEIA supporters,


We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable holiday season and that 2010 is treating you well thus far.


Below are several important events we hope you will attend. The first is a Commemoration of last year’s devastating massacre in Gaza and the ongoing ethnic cleansing of Palestine.  Second, we encourage everyone to attend the Middle East Children’s Alliance event with Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the Electronic Intifada, author and activist. Abunimah has recently returned from Cairo, where he gathered along with 1,400 other activists for the Gaza Freedom March.


Finally, we have an update on the Palestinian political prisoners mentioned in last month’s newsletter.  Fortunately the two activists from the Stop the Wall Campaign have been released.  However, Bil’in resident and activist, Abdullah Abu Rahmeh remains in detention facing charges, and waves of new arrests in Bil’in and elsewhere have taken place.  Please take action for the release of Abu Rahmeh and the latest victims of Israel’s repressive tactics!


And, don’t forget to take a look at our website — we update our blog regularly with news and analysis related to the BDS movement, as well as local event announcements, and updates from other movements for justice.  Have something you want to share?  Email us at webmaster@baceia.org.


Towards a just and peaceful New Year,
