RCPJ Activists,
Most of you have seen the minutes from our last meeting. This is for your information so we can understand better why we made the important decision to fundraise for medical aid to Gaza. We will be setting up the fundraising page with ANERA -American Near East Refugee Aid, later this week. ANERA is in Gaza and works with the hospitals there.
See the link below.
Thanks for your interest and deep concern,
Elaine for RCPJ


“The Occupation of the American Mind”

Public Movie Screening  

Presented by Racine Coalition for Peace & Justice (RCPJ)

Saturday, May 19th, 12:00 pm

Racine Public Library- 1st-floor Atrium (75 7th St. Racine, WI 53403)

“Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and its repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world — except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S.

Featuring leading observers of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor”.
