Protest at the Christians United for Israel Conference

(Washington, DC) – July 21st, 2014 – CODEPINK, Jewish Voice for Peace and other activists rallied at the first day of Christians United for Israel Conference (CUFI). CUFI is an extreme ring-wing neo-conservative group who bases their ideologies off of the Book of Revelations. Around 30 protestors showed up to show CUFI who the real oppressors are within this terrible conflict. They asked for an immediate halt to the Israeli bombardment of besieged Gaza and U.S. military funding to Israel.

That evening four people were able to infiltrate the CUFI conference to speak out about the atrocities happening in Gaza. They were met with “Mob Rules” type force. The protestors were choked and hit as well as detained.  This is minimal force if think about what Palestinians and Africans are being faced with on daily basis.
