Rhinebeck BDS vigil

Six of us held banners, passed out flyers and collected signatures urging a local store, Williams Lumber, to stop carrying SodaSteam. 

People were generally supportive, and seemed to know more than last year. A Bard professor (from Turkey) will link us up with an active group at the college, Students for Justice in Palestine. We collected about 15 more signatures, and several were actually happy for the chance to add their names.

Small gains, but really important in getting the message out. We are part of a much larger movement that is finally challenging our country's blind support of Israel.


On June 5, MECR presented On The Side of the Road by Israeli filmmaker,
Lia Tarachansky. She was a guest on Activist Radio before the film showing.
