Tucson, AZ – On Saturday, October 7, with just a three-hour notice, nearly 30 Tucson activists gathered at a busy street corner to demonstrate their solidarity with the advancing Palestinian resistance forces.

While the illegal occupation by U.S.-backed Israel has always been met by Palestinian opposition, recent events constitute many historic achievements on the part of the Palestinian liberation movement. The coordinated operation called the “Al-Aqsa Flood” – including a record number of rockets fired, significant military damage inflicted, effective cyberattacks, and actual settlements reclaimed from the genocidal Zionists – marks a major shift in the power dynamic between oppressed and oppressor.

Tucson Anti War Committee organizers called for the action which brought out activists including members of Students for Justice in Palestine. The students led chants such as: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” and “Not another nickel, not another dime. No more money for Israel’s crimes!”

President Biden has already promised $8 billion more in U.S. aid to Israel and Israel has bombed Gaza in retaliation to Palestinian operations. Tucson solidarity activists will be organizing more actions in the coming days to demand an end to U.S. aid to Israel and to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian resistance.
