Proposal: Coordinated Economic Blockade to Free Palestine, Monday, April 15, 2024

The proposal at this link is being put forward – at this point is only sharing this proposal and not endorsing it.  Some reticence is over whether there is capacity and another concern is the safety of participants and the potential resource drain from large legal expenses there can be.  At the same time, if this were carried out successfully it could possible up the ante and level of resistance.  I am sharing it to promote discussion on the matter.  I am also embedding several recent articles about possible targets for protests along these lines – particularly those engaged in support for military provisions to Israel – including a major helicopter contract with a manufacturer in North Philadelphia.

The statement mentions NY / NJ – if anyone is already engaged in this effort and has more information or anyone wants to take up this initiative and wants to share a more detailed specific proposal reach out to .

The following is the statement from the website:

Coordinated Economic Blockade to Free Palestine
Monday, April 15, 2024

The global economy is complicit in genocide. Join participating cities in blocking the arteries of capitalism and jamming the wheels of production.

A proposal to coordinate a multi-city economic blockade on April 15th in solidarity with Palestine recently received overwhelming commitments to participate around the US and internationally.

The proposal states that in each city, we will identify and blockade major choke points in the economy, focusing on points of production and circulation with the aim of causing the most economic impact, as did the port shutdowns in recent months in Oakland, California and Melbourne, Australia, as just a few examples.

There is a sense in the streets in this recent and unprecedented movement for Palestine that escalation has become necessary: there is a need to shift from symbolic actions to those that cause pain to the economy.

As Yemen is bombed to secure global trade, and billions of dollars are sent to the Zionist war machine, we must recognize that the global economy is complicit in genocide and together we will coordinate to disrupt and blockade economic logistical hubs and the flow of capital.
