We stand in solidarity with Stop Cop City activists


We stand in solidarity with Stop Cop City activists 

We stand in solidarity with the activists enduring mounting state violence and repression as they seek to protect their communities and natural resources from the corporate-funded, militarized police training compound known as Cop City. The police, acting on behalf of Atlanta's corporate elite and the politicians they sponsor, have attempted to quash the resistance movement. They have failed.

Law enforcement and government officials, corporate spokespeople, and others will continue to attempt to smear protesters as “terrorists,” “rioters,” and “outside agitators.” Do not fall for it. This is a righteous struggle for justice against a cadre of elites hellbent on preserving white supremacy and their own power at the expense of the public good. We are proud to support this struggle, and we encourage all advocates of racial, economic, and environmental justice to do the same.

U.S. Palestinian rights group prevails as D.C. Circuit Court tosses out lawsuit that targeted advocacy 

On Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit charging that a Palestinian rights organization had provided “material support” for terrorism by engaging in advocacy. Brought by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and several U.S. citizens who live in Israel, the suit targeted First Amendment-protected activities of the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR), including its support for the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. As the court found, “[a]dvocating and coordinating a boycott of Israel — ‘economically, academically[,] and diplomatically,’... — is not unlawful.” 

“The JNF's lawfare attack was meant to silence us, so we’ll raise our voices all the louder. Activists across the U.S. will keep mobilizing to end all U.S. military funding to the apartheid state of Israel.”

– Ahmad Abuznaid, USCPR’s Executive Director

The suit is part of a broader, global effort to repress and silence the political activities of supporters of Palestinian rights, advocates say.
