Open Shuhada Street

On February 25, 1994 Brooklyn Born Israeli Settler Baruch Goldstein opened fire in the Ibrahimi mosque killing 29 Palestinians in worship. Since then Shuhada Street, once the main marketplace in Hebron, has remained almost entirely closed to Palestinians. Homes and storefronts are welded shut and Palestinian families must use rooftops, alleyways, and back doors to enter their homes. Hebron is home to the most violent and ideologically extreme of the settler movement. Around 850 of them live within Hebron’s city center. While they roam the streets freely carrying machine guns, Palestinians face 20 checkpoints, over 100 freedom of movement barriers, and ongoing harassment from settlers and soldiers.

Join the Open Shuhada Street Week of Action February 19-26!

The Brooklyn based Hebron Fund, uses its US 501c3 tax exempt charity status to fund Hebron's settlers. Goldman Sachs donates to the Hebron Fund. Bankrolling violent extremist settlers is not charity and should not be tax exempt.

Join the campaign! Organize a protest atGoldman Sachs or the Hebron Fund in Brooklyn February 19-25!
