Sample JAT Action Alert:
Protest Cambridge Peace Commission
DATE: 30 June, 2003
TYPE: Action Item
SCOPE: Boston Area
SUBJ: Protest Cambridge Peace Commission
International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is a group of
socialist estremists that supports Palestinian terrorism by
sending "peace" activists, some of whom are currently under
indictment in Israel for shielding known terrorists from
arrest. ISM is explicit in its support for the Palestinian
right to commit terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians.
Although several ISM activists are now under indictment for
shielding terrorists from arrest, the group denies that its
support for terrorism goes beyond the verbal.
The city of Cambridge has a Peace Commission that supports
ISM in various ways, including allowing the group to hold
its regular meetings in the Peace Commission's city-owned
The Director of the Cambridge Peace Commission, Cathy
Hoffman, is quite open about her belief that the Palestinians
should be supported in their liberation struggle and that
they have a right to use terrorism in that struggle. Hoffman
is a salaried employee of the City of Cambridge.
On Tuesday, July 1, at 6:30 pm, there will be a
demonstration at 51 Inman Street, Cambridge (behind
Cambridge City Hall, between Harvard St and Mass. Ave). ISM
is meeting in the Peace Commission offices at 7:00.
We will protest the support by Massachusetts taxpayers of a
group that endorses and supports terrorism.
