Anti-AIPAC posters in downtown Washington greet conference delegates
Haaretz, Mar 4 2013


Hundreds of anti-AIPAC billboards signs have been posted across central subway stations in downtown Washington, sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace and Avaaz. The posters were highly visible to many of the 13,000 delegates attending AipAc’s annual conference. Rebecca Vilkomerson of Jewish Voice for Peace said:

AIPAC is the NRA of foreign policy lobbies, pushing a right­wing agenda that does not represent the majority of Jewish USAians. Its support for military build­up and endless settlement expansion makes peace impossible. It cannot claim to speak for all US Jews.

Protesters from various Jewish and Palestinian groups have held vigils outside the entrances to the Washington Convention Center, where the conference is being held, leading to some scuffles with police and AIPAC delegates.
