Rally against the Washington Post on Aug 21st

From Sustain Campaign


What: Protest the Washington Post's Coverage and Editorials of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict

When: Tuesday, August 21 @ 5:00 PM

Where: Washington Post Offices at 1150 15th St NW

On three consecutive days, the Washington Post published three highly offensive editorials (Michael Kelly's Mideast Myths Exploded (8/15), Charles Krauthammer's Mideast Violence: The Only Way Out (8/16), and George Will's A War and Then a Wall, (8/17) ) portraying Israel as the victim of Palestinian aggression and urging it to wage an all out war against the Palestinians. Among other things the articles fail to mention that the Palestinians are an occupied people, and that Israel is the occupier. And while they describe the death and the loss on the Israeli side in great and graphic detail they fail to mention that the Palestinians have suffered since the beginning of the occupation an even greater loss.

Those of us who feel deeply dismayed and disturbed by the Washington Post's persistence in publishing articles that incite more violence and aggression against the Palestinians have decided to protest outside the Post's headquarters in DC on Tuesday the 21st, at 5pm. We will be distributing flyers and handouts debunking the arguments made in the editorials and expressing our deep dismay at the Washington Post's obvious lack of sensitivity to Arab and Palestinian rights and sentiments. If you feel the same please make a banner and join us in our protest!
