August 20, New York City: Demonstrators marched over the Brooklyn Bridge in support of the people of Gaza. Late in the evening, the march merged with protesters on the Lower East Side marching for justice for Michael Brown.

August 21, Chicago: Activists, including Jewish Voice for Peace, protest a “Chicago Stands With Israel” fundraiser sponsored by the Jewish United Fund at the Chicago Hilton hotel. During a speech by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, they chanted “Shame.”

In both Chicago and New York, signs and chants raised “Occupation is a crime, Ferguson to Palestine.”

Growing links between these struggles are an inspiring development. These outrages flow from a common source of oppression in the global system of capitalism-imperialism, and these links are an important development in forging a common struggle of the people of the world against that system.
