The IDF trains US police departments. The militarized violence we are seeing this week is in part a product of Israeli occupation.

The influence of Israeli occupation on US police depts. has been evident in the intentional targeting of journalists for violence--something Palestinian journalists experience regularly. #DemilitarizeNow #DefundPolice #FreePalestine #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd

This is a picture of my grandfather from his time in the army.

Days like #MemorialDay are fraught for me as an abolitionist from a police and military family. #DemilitarizeNow #AbolitionNow Image
It's hard to honor the sacrifices (I do believe military service is a sacrifice, just not in the ways that are touted/glorified) of poor, working Black ppl in my family/community, while being clear they have suffered for those sacrifices, as have many around them. #MemorialDay
The "sacrifice" of the service people in my life has been of their mental/physical/emotional health. The result has been generations of trauma for themselves and their loved ones. #MemorialDay #DemilitarizeNow #AbolitionNow

We're joining the twitter storm to demand the US #EndCovidSanctions now!

This virus has uncovered countless lies we've been fed under capitalism and imperialism, and one of them is that sanctions are a nonviolent war tactic. #Covid19 #NoSanctionsOnIran…
Sanctions don't punish corrupt governments, they punish working people. The US government has no right to deny human rights and lifesaving resources to workers here, or anywhere else on the planet. #EndCovidSanctions #EndUSImperialism…
Lift all sanctions now! Healthcare is a global right, and the only thing that can protect us from this pandemic. #EndCovidSanctions, and #DemilitarizeNow by cutting resources from war spending and putting them into healthcare for all! #Covid19…

Moments like the pardoning of #EdwardGallagher are devastating for those who tried to stand up to power and do right, but they are also revealing of which systems and structures are genuinely interested in doing right. #DemilitarizeNow #NoEndlessWar…
I hope the brave soldiers who stood up to #EdwardGallagher will continue to do so. I hope they will realize that Gallagher is not an aberration, but the true face of militarism. I hope they will be radicalized into calling for demilitarization globally. #DemilitarizeNow
Let's take this moment to remind ourselves that militarization was always built on racism, misogyny, imperialism, and white nationalism. The violence of #EdwardGallagher is the core of economy, our culture, our nationhood. #DemilitarizeNow #NoEndlessWar…

A majority of people in the US support #GunControlNow. Gov't inaction is due to the intense lobbying of wealthy weapons manufactures--the same ones who keep us in a cycle of endless wars, which are also unsupported by the majority #ElPasoShooting #DemilitarizeNow #NoMoreWars
Continued procrastination on banning dangerous weapons is anti-youth, anti-immigrant, anti-elder, anti-Black, anti-Muslim violence, and speaks volumes about whose lives the US is wiling to sacrifice for profit #ElPasoShooting #GunControlNow #DemilitarizeNow #NoMoreWars
It's time for serious and sustained demands for the banning of all automatic weaponry--not just for "civilians," but universally #ElPasoShooting #GunControlNow #DemilitarizeNow #NoMoreWars
