If you missed it, the live stream video can still be viewed on the CNYSC facebook page. Follow FairMapsCNY on facebook and please see the upcoming strategy meeting scheduled for January 4th.

Trump Is Not Above the Law – Night Before House Impeachment Vote

Tuesday Dec 17th 5:30 PM  – 6:30 PM · James M. Hanley Federal Building 100 S Clinton St

On the evening before the House of Representatives votes on articles of impeachment against President Trump, community members will gather outside the Hanley Federal Building to demand the President be held accountable. Already, we’ve seen Trump exhibit a new level of lawlessness. Withholding military aid to pressure a foreign leader into digging up dirt on a political rival is an unprecedented abuse of power that is clearly an impeachable offense. Join us at the federal building to send a message that nobody is above the law.

Free Gaza – weekly demonstrations 

Fridays 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm (every Friday)  Corner of East Genesee St. and Erie Blvd, DeWitt

Our friday afternoon demos in dewitt continue – these try to call attention to the very much ignored but systematic 

IDF killing and maiming of nonviolent activists at the gaza border. But please note that — due to the deepening cold and the encroaching darkness — we’ve adjusted our hours to 4 to 4:30 p.m. every  Friday.

Over one year after the Great March of Return protests began at the Gaza-Israel border, Palestinians in Gaza are still demanding their internationally-recognized right to return to the homes they were displaced from in 1948. The protests have continued at the border every Friday, and Israeli snipers have continued to meet them with excessive force, resulting in hundreds of deaths and thousands more injuries since the Great March began on March 30, 2018. Join us to stand up for human rights – bring your own sign or borrow one of ours.
