If Americans knew - New england (IAK-NE)
to inform, educate, and raise public awareness on issues of major significance regarding Palestine
The purpose of If Americans Knew/ New England is to raise public awareness about significant issues regarding Palestine, especially:
unreported, under-reported, or misreported information in our regional media &
U.S. complicity in the Mideast conflict.
to provide an East Coast base of support for Alison Weir and If Americans Knew, National.
The mission of 'If Americans Knew, New England' is to inform and educate the public in New England on issues of major significance regarding Palestine, especially news that is unreported, under-reported, or misreported in our regional media.
IAK provides information about Palestine that is accurate and undistorted by a) conscious or unconscious bias, b) by lies of either commission or omission, or c) by pressures exerted by powerful special interest groups... so that the American public in New England can mandate their Congressional reps to make informed conscientious decisions regarding the needs in Palestine.
Additionally, the regional Chapter of IAK works to bring about a Reconciliation among the three major Palestine Support groups in the U.S. where currently there is a grave split, causing fractures in the "Palestine Solidarity" movement.
IAK believes all people are endowed with inalienable human rights regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, or nationality. IAK believes in justice, fairness, and compassion and in treating all human beings with respect, empathy, and in the manner in which we would wish to be treated. IAK is against all forms of racism.
Disseminating IAK Information:
IAK materials and information are available to everyone. IAK believes it is essential that the facts about Palestine be offered to every person who is open to hearing the truth, especially in Alison Weir's well-documented book, Against Our Better Judgement: the hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create the state of Israel.
IAK facilitates presentations about how to achieve Reconciliation among the three major Palestine Support organizations in the U.S.(JVP/ISCEIO and IAK).
IAK meets the second Thursday of each month.
