Land Day - 5 Broken Cameras

On March 30, 1976 Arab-Israelis organized in Galilee to protest the Israeli occupation and appropriation of Palestinian land. They were met by Israeli police and, in the ensuing clash, 6 Arab-Israelis were killed. Every year since, Palestinians have commemorated March 30th as Land Day with annual protests on this date. The SPC seeks to support the Palestinian struggle with a commemoration of our own.

Drone Resisters Speak Out At Trial

From the Content

compiled by Ben Kuebrich and Ed Kinane

After a several-hour-long trial on December 13, 2012, DeWitt Town Court judge Robert Jokl found eleven members of Upstate Drone Action guilty of “trespass,” a violation. The “trespass” occurred on June 28 outside the main entrance of Hancock Air Base, just north of Syracuse, as the defendants attempted to deliver a citizens’ indictment to the Base chain of command for the Reaper drone war crimes being committed from there. Here we present extracts (recalled from notes and memory) of several of the defendants’ court testimonies.
