Main St.& Gould Ave.
The Palestinian American Commuity Center is holding a press conference and rally today, May 11, at 5 p.m. at Main Street and Gould Avenue in Paterson.
From their press release:
Since the last week of April 2021, Zionist Israeli settlers have been attacking and threatening to take over Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem. These settlers roamed through Palestinian neighborhoods chanting “death to Arabs”, confidently proclaiming and asserting a right to land and homes that do not belong to them.
The neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah is under the most harm as we speak, with over 200 Palestinians facing forced expulsion. Israeli courts have ruled that settlers are allowed to move into Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem, thus fueling and encouraging more violent displacement by Israeli settlers. By now, many of us have seen the enraging videos of Israeli settlers confidently storming into Palestinians’ homes and claiming that it is rightfully theirs.
