About the Event

Tonight (Tuesday), on day two of the Republican National Convention, join us to protest Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as he speaks live from Jerusalem while on an official State Department diplomatic trip to Israel. The speech will likely violate rules against partisan activity by State Department employees.

Pompeo will be using Israel, and Judaism, as a political prop to curry favor with Evangelicals, win reelection for Trump, boost Netanyahu's battered image, further demonstrate the Trump administration's complete lack of regard for Palestinian human rights, and escalate tensions with Iran. We will also protest Pompeo's attacks on Venezuela and Cuba and the new U.S. cold war on China.
