Washington, DC welcomes end aid campaign
Washington, DC welcomes the “Be on our side” campaign.
DC Riders for Peace is a coalition of organizations working to inform individuals and groups in the Washington, DC, area about the need for a just peace in Palestine/Israel and the multiple dimensions of that conflict. DC Riders promotes active steps that U.S. citizens can take to end the occupation and the violence in the region, including an end to U.S. military aid to Israel. As residents, citizens, and taxpayers, we believe it is vital to condition U.S. military aid to Israel on Israel’s compliance with applicable U.S. laws and UN Security Council resolutions, the Geneva Conventions, and international human rights laws.
Stemming from our conviction that it is time to advance a new U.S. policy towards the Israeli Palestinian conflict based on genuine justice and security for both Israelis and Palestinians, DC Riders for Peace launched a four-week advertisement campaign on May 16, 2011, urging an end to U.S. military aid to Israel [read the press release]. This campaign is sponsored by DC area human rights groups and supported by individual peace advocates. The ads are posted inside Washington Metro Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Metrorail trains.
