● Boycott the Oct 18 Sacramento Kings game against Israel’s Maccabi Haifa
basketball team. Join the protest outside the arena (FMI:
Sacramentobds at gmail.com) or, if you attend, wear a Kaffayeh or t-shirt or
bring a sign in support of Palestinian rights. Contact Kings’ President
Chris Granger, ( <mailto:cgranger at kings.com> cgranger at kings.com; 916
928-0000) and ask him to cancel the game and issue a public statement
condemning Israel’s recent attacks on Palestinians in Gaza. Tell him the
Kings should not be supporting Israel’s war crimes by playing this team.

● Contact Obama and Congress and ask them why the U.S. continues to support
a lying Israeli regime. According to Democracy Now and other sources,
Israeli officials have admitted that Hamas leadership had no part in the
kidnapping of the 3 Israeli teens in July, an incident that was used to
attack and kill over 2000 Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. Tell Obama
and Congress they must pressure Israel to end the blockade and siege on Gaza
and the occupation and land theft in the West Bank. Click for contact info
or see below <http://sacbds.org/contact/> .
● Consider not donating to ANY of the Congressional representatives who
represent parts of Sacramento County, Matsui, Bera, Garamendi and letting
them know you aren’t supporting them because they all supported Israel’s
brutal July/August attack on Gaza. <http://sacbds.org/contact/> Click for
contact info or see below.
● If you have not already done so, please, sign the petition
demanding the reinstatement of Palestinian-American Professor Dr. Steven
Salaita fired from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, for his
public criticism of the U.S.-sponsored Israeli massacres in Gaza.
