One Gateway Plaza


On Wednesday, June 2, the NJ Chapter of American Muslims for Palestine will converge their efforts with several organizations that are maintaining monthly protests in Newark at One Gateway Plaza, including Black is Back Coalition, Green Party of NJ, NJ Ecosocialist Youth, and #NJAntiWarAgenda.

This event, the 6th in the monthly series, will feature updates from Palestinian, Muslim and other activists as well as messages of support from other national struggles including Colombian, Dominican, Haitian, Honduran and other struggles as well as from organizations working for systemic change within the confines of the USA.

According to Lisa Davis of Black is Back Coalition,

It is imperative that we tie the domestic struggles of African and other oppressed people in the US with this country’s conquest for global domination through unending wars and exploitation of global resources. Our monthly protests in front of Senator Booker’s office in Newark thus far this year has brought us into a collaborative relationship with national struggles of the peoples of Ecuador, Colombia, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Palestine and all places where US imperialism and intervention is creating systems of violent oppression of the populations. We are determined to give a clear message to NJ’s US Senators that they must take a position to end these wars once and for all, and instead using trillions for war, they must use that money for reparations for African people, and to meet the immediate needs of people here in the US. We join with our Palestinian sisters and brothers to demand the immediate cessation of all US economic and military aid to Israel and an immediate end to the US backed Israeli occupation of Palestine—we say free Palestine, end the wars now, end US imperialism and abolish AFRICOM!

The Black is Back Coalition, Green Party of New Jersey, #NJAntiWar Agenda, Party for Socialism and Liberation, VOIHLA (Voices of Haitians Living Abroad) and others are holding their monthly anti-war, anti-imperialist event in Newark, this month focusing on the growing resistance to the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

As part of the event, a 30-foot banner display created by Palestinian activists from Paterson will be displayed, and organizers encourage participants to bring banners, signs, Palestinian flags, and other visual displays as well as drums and other musical instruments. There is a potential for a march through Ironbound if the numbers merit such a march.
