Occupy the NYC LGBT Center

End the ban on Palestine solidarity organizing

Saturday, March 3, 2012  – 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 ensuring diversity and providing 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:

      End the ban on Palestine solidarity organizing at the Center

      Open the Center to all who respect its stated mission.

      Open the Center’s board meetings and decision-making process to thecommunity.
