“Not in Our Name”: Jewish Peace Activists Rally at Statue of Liberty to Demand Gaza Ceasefire

HeadlineNov 07, 2023

In Washington state, hundreds of protesters peacefully blockaded the entrance to the Port of Tacoma Monday, delaying the loading of weapons onto a U.S. military supply vessel bound for Israel. It’s the same ship that met a similar protest Friday in the Port of Oakland. Organizers say they’ll continue to track the ship’s travel and will hold more protests wherever it sails. Here in New York, about 500 members of Jewish Voice for Peace and their allies rallied at the Statue of Liberty Monday to demand a ceasefire in Gaza. Protesters wore black T-shirts reading “Not in Our Name.” In a statement, Jay Saper of Jewish Voice for Peace said, “The famous words of our Jewish ancestor Emma Lazarus etched into this very monument compel us to take action supporting the Palestinians of Gaza yearning to breathe free.”
