The Windy City Makes Waves for Peace, Equity and Justice in Palestine

November 23, 2010 1 Comment

BY STEPHEN LENDMAN for Op Ed News

The suburban Chicago-based Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine (CJPIP) “is a diverse, community-based group dedicated to organizing activities and educational events that advance the cause of peace and justice for both Palestinians and Israelis.”

It supports:

— equal rights and access to resources (equitably) based on social, economic, environmental, and political justice principles

— peace and equal justice

— an end to Israel’s illegal occupation and continuing land theft

— an end to US policies that sustain the occupation

— international support for an equitable and just negotiation process

— granting Palestinian refugees their right of return, guaranteed under international law

— ending all forms of individual, organizational, and state-sponsored terror.

    Thanks to Stephen Lendman for his coverage of this campaign.

    A slight correction:

    In our literature we thank individuals involved by stating: “To build the campaign, we drew on the expertise and enthusiasm of other Chicago area individuals including members of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) Chicago Middle East Program, Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago (JVP), Chicago Arab-Jewish Partnership, and the Chicago Faith Coalition on Middle East Policy. We also are grateful to the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation which has allowed us to link to invaluable action and informational resources.”
