The following statement was adopted by the State Central Committee of the California Peace and Freedom Party at its meeting on November 18, 2012.
The California Peace and Freedom Party condemns the recent attacks on the people of the Gaza Strip, the most aggressive since the massacres of 2008. We join the many voices calling for an end to sending arms to Israel. The United States is responsible for these and other violations of U.S. and international law performed with regularity by the Israeli military. As long as the United States enables the Israeli government by providing support such as money, weapons, and diplomatic cover, the violence will continue. As Americans we must once more say "Not in our name."
We furthermore applaud the Associated Students of U.C. Irvine who voted unanimously to divest from companies making a profit from the Occupied Territories. We call for a more vigorous effort to ensure the progress of the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) movement.
