URGENT Action Alert: FoA Calls Protest Against Colin Powell Fundraising for Racist JNF

July 1, 2012

Saturday, January 14. 2006

On Sunday 15th January, former U.S Secretary of State Colin Powell will be guest speaker at a fund- raising dinner being held by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in London.

The JNF is a quasi-official organisation of the Israeli state; one of the principle purposes of which is raising funds for the acquisition and development of land in Palestine for the exclusive use of Jewish people. The JNF owns approximately 13% of the land in Israel, and is prohibited by its own constitution from selling or leasing this land to non-Jews, thus excluding all Palestinians and Arabs. The JNF also uses occupied Palestinian land to build illegal settlements; described on its web-site as reclaimed land.
Mr Powells decision to support the JNF is lending support to the systematic annihilation of the Palestinian people.
A peaceful protest is being called, and we urge all friends of Palestine to attend and demonstrate.

Date: 15 January 2006
Time: 5.30pm Sharp
Assemble: Outside London Park Lane Hotel, 22 Park Lane, London W1K 1BE, (Nearest Tube: Hyde Park Corner).

Supported by the Islamic Human Rights Commission, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, MPAC and MAB.

Please circulate widely.
