Brooklyn For Peace Condemns Cuomo Exec Order Re Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions

Brooklyn For Peace Condemns Cuomo Executive Order Re Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions

Brooklyn For Peace condemns Executive Order 157 issued by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, prohibiting state agencies from doing business with institutions and companies that engage in or support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel. His order will create a “blacklist” of institutions and companies that engage in any ”boycott, divestment, or sanctions activity targeting Israel, either directly or through a parent or subsidiary” as a tactic to support and defend Palestinian human rights. We call on the governor to rescind his Executive Order without delay.

Peace And Pride—The BFP Table
At The Brooklyn PRIDE Fair

Jun 11, 2016

For quite a few years, Brooklyn For Peace members have staffed a table at the annual Brooklyn PRIDE street fair. This year the fair was held on Brooklyn’s busy Fifth Avenue. People strolled down the thoroughfare celebrating  LGBT justice and equality.

The table attracted lots of visitors who signed petitions, purchased buttons and took our “Refugees Are Welcome Here” posters to place in their windows. The campaign is  designed to counter the anti-immigrant anti-refugee poison that has been spewed during this presidential campaign by stating Brooklyn’s welcome to people fleeing horrific violence and war.

We also asked people to take our popular Penny Poll. Using a series of transparent tubes mounted in a box and labeled with different spending categories from the Federal budget that’s decided each year by Congress, we ask people “How do you want your tax dollars used? We give each person 20 pennies to allocate based on their spending priorities. “Would you like to go for war or affordable housing or schools? Overwhelmingly, Brooklyn residents design a budget that favors spending for human needs over war. This, of course, is in sharp contrast to what Congress does with our tax dollars each year, giving the Pentagon close to 60 percent of the discretionary budget. Education, by contrast, receives only six percent.

If you’d like to help Brooklyn For Peace at this summer’s street fair tables, send us an email  by clicking here.

Check out more photos of today’s table here.
