Gov. Brown, VETO AB 2844! Phone: 916-445-2841. Fax: 916-558-3160 Email via: http://www.gov.ca.gov
CA Assembly bill AB 2844 attacks non-violent efforts to end Israel’s violations of international law and human rights including its occupation, illegal settlements, home demolitions, apartheid laws, and extrajudicial killings. It also attacks our constitutional right to boycott and wastes our taxes.
Tell Gov. Brown VETO AB 2844! Phone: 916-445-2841. Fax: 916-558-3160 Email via: http://www.gov.ca.gov
AB 2844’s purpose is to:
• silence free speech and stigmatize our right to boycott, a strategy used to help end South African apartheid & Jim Crow.
• stop peaceful efforts like boycotts to end Israel’s human rights violations, including occupation, illegal settlements, apartheid laws, home demolitions, torturing of prisoners, child detention, and extrajudicial killings.
AB 2844 would waste our tax dollars. It is opposed by the California State Department of Finance
AB 2844 is intended to suppress activism aimed at ending the Israeli government’s human rights abuses. AB 2844 would stigmatize and threaten with criminal sanctions applicants for contracts with the State of California who choose not to do business with Israel. This includes companies, churches, nonprofits, and individuals.
Tell Governor Brown that your tax dollars should not be used to defend Israel’s abuses and they should not be bullied by the Israel lobby to defend Israel’s abuses.
