“Liberation Seder” Protests in NYC, Boston, Chicago, D.C. and SF

HeadlineApr 21, 2016

In New York City, Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C., Jews have staged protests dubbed “Liberation Seder” to demand U.S. Jewish establishment groups end their support for Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories. The protests draw on rituals from Passover, which begins Friday night. Seventeen people were arrested at a protest inside the New York City offices of the Anti-Defamation League Wednesday, while six people were arrested Tuesday at a protest at AIPAC’s offices in Boston. More protests are planned for San Francisco later today.
