Rally on Sep. 4 in front of Rep. Delgado's Office in Kingston, NY


Congressman Delgado, despite receiving more than 2,400 petition signatures, has repeatedly refused even to meet his constituents to discuss co-sponsoring the legislation. He continues to support your tax dollars to being used for these human rights abuses. 

Tell Delgado he can no longer turn a blind eye to this abuse of children. He must stop taking contributions from the Israel Lobby (over $30,000 last year) and co-sponsor HR 2590. 


You can also call him (845-443-2930), or send him a message on Facebook or Twitter (@repdelgado). 


March and rally sponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace - Hudson Valley, Middle East Crisis Response, and Women in Black - New Paltz.

Protect the Rights of Palestinian Children



Protect the Rights of Palestinian Children
Saturday, September 4 
11 am - 12:30 pm

Join us Saturday, September 4 in Kingston to insist Congressman Antonio Delgado co-sponsor legislation that would protect Palestinian children from abuse by Israeli military occupation forces. Meet at 11 am at the Kingston Farmers’ Market (John St.), and then march to Rep. Delgado’s office (256 Clinton Ave), where there will be several speakers. Talal Jabari, internationally acclaimed Palestinian filmmaker, will also join us.

House Resolution 2590, which already has 29 co-sponsors, would bar Israel from using any of the $3.8 bn it receives each year in US military aid to detain Palestinian children, to demolish homes, or to annex Palestinian land for Israeli settlements. 

Israel detains and prosecutes 500-700 children each year in military courts. It is the only country in the world to do this. Three out of four children report being physically abused or tortured. More than half are arrested in late night raids on their homes. Your tax dollars help fund these arrests. 

Congressman Delgado, despite receiving more than 2,400 petition signatures, has repeatedly refused even to meet his constituents to discuss co-sponsoring the legislation. He continues to support your tax dollars to being used for these human rights abuses. 

Tell Delgado he can no longer turn a blind eye to this abuse of children. He must stop taking contributions from the Israel Lobby (over $30,000 last year) and co-sponsor HR 2590. Join us on September 4 for this march to his Kingston office. 

You can also call him (845-443-2930), or send him a message on Facebook or Twitter (@repdelgado).

Farmers' Markets, a way to connect with local communities

Thanks to Tom, Laurie, Donna, Naomi, Paul, Katja, Gail, and Lisa for coming out today for the Kingston Farmers' Market. We got 20 signatures for our petition and passed out over 200 flyers. A number of people thanked us, and nobody voiced any criticism at all. It was a real change from even five years ago.

A few people wanted to try Rhinebeck next. That would be next month, as most thought monthly was better then weekly. 

So the next Farmers' Market vigil will be:

Sunday, August 22 in Rhinebeck, from 11 am to noon at the Town Parking lot one block east of the light.
