Protesters Rally to Demand End to U.S. Military Aid to Israel

HeadlineOct 10, 2023

Here in New York, hundreds of protesters rallied outside Israel’s Consulate in Manhattan Monday. This is Nerdeen Kiswani‎, a Palestinian American activist who co-founded the group Within Our Lifetimes.

Nerdeen Kiswani: “We demand an end to the siege and blockade of Gaza. We demand an end to the occupation. We demand an end to the colonization of Palestine and all Arab lands, including Syrian lands like the Golan Heights and Shebaa Farms in Lebanon, which are also occupied by Israel. … The funding that this government provides to this state that is killing our people, that is using your tax dollars to do so — $3 billion a year is $10 million every single day, and this is just to the military, it’s not just to the Israeli state.”
