UPDATE: Senator Richard Pan’s phone is (916) 651-4006. 

You can also send him an email through his website:  http://sd06.senate.ca.gov/contact

Tell him criticizing Israel is NOT Anti-Semitism, no on SCR 35 as it is currently written.


► Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 29, 2015, the Senate Education Committee will consider SCR 35 <http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/15-16/bill/sen/sb_0001-0050/scr_35_bill_20150326_introduced.html> , yet another attempt to silence students who are challenging Israel’s violations of international law and human rights. 

Call Sacramento-area state Senator Richard Pan (916) 651-4906 and others on the Education Committee and tell them SCR 35 must be voted down or amended to clearly state that challenging Israel’s abuses is not anti-Semitic and it must affirm students rights to organize to freely discuss or engage in any legal speech or other activity that is critical of or challenges the policies of any country. 

If you can, attend the hearing, 9am in Hearing Room 4203 at the State Capitol, 1315 10th St., Sacramento

►Tell your  <http://www.senate.gov/> Senators and Congressional  <http://www.house.gov/> Representatives, 202-224-3121, that you support Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) as a way to legitimately and non-violently pressure Israel to end its egregious violations of international law and human rights.  Tell them to vote against AIPAC-sponsored amendments to HR 825 (or other bills) that attempt to restrict BDS.  Tell them to stop funding Israel’s abuses (to the tune of $9 million a day).   BDS is a non-violent tool that worked to end apartheid in South Africa and can work to end Israel’s abuses.   <http://mondoweiss.net/2015/04/legislation-targeting-movement?utm_source=Mondoweiss+List&utm_campaign=5635e22e53-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b86bace129-5635e22e53-398537753> Click for more information.
