Occupy the NYC LGBT Center with Queers Against Israeli Apartheid

Saturday, March 3, 2012
4:00pm until 7:00pm
The LGBT Community Center, NYC, 208 West 13th St
Occupy the NYC LGBT Center! End the ban on Palestine solidarity organizing! Part of Israeli Apartheid Week.
Brought to you by Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.

Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 4 p.m.NYC LGBT Community Center, 208 W. 13th St.

Since March 2011, the NYC LGBT Center has banned Palestine solidarity
activists (queer and non-LGBT) from meeting at the Center and imposed
a “moratorium” on any discussion of the Palestinian struggle. This
censorship, in response to pressure from wealthy supporters of
Israel’s anti-Palestinian policies, flies in the face of our
community’s commitment to diversity and offering safe space for
discussion of “controversial” issues. Petitions, appeals to meet with
the Center’s board of directors, calls and letters have not succeeded
in winning back our right to free speech and assembly.

If you agree that the wealthy and powerful 1% should not be allowed to
silence the voices of the 99%, then join us in defying this ban.
Occupy the Center!

We demand:
1) End the ban on Palestine solidarity organizing at the Center.
2) Open the Center to all who respect its stated mission.
3) Open the Center’s board meetings and decision-making process to the community.

This event is open to all.

Initiated by Queers Against Israeli Apartheid

This event is part of Israeli Apartheid Week. For more on Israeli
